Eggtastic News!!!!!!!!!!!

Awesome!  The nesting season has officially begun.  For new fans of the Columbus Peregrines and a recap for seasoned veterans, what we can expect to see in the coming days:
Peregrines generally lay 4 eggs per clutch and incubation doesn't begin until the last egg or the next to the last egg is laid.  Don't be alarmed by the unseasonably cool temperatures we are having this week in Columbus.  Eggs can be left alone for long periods of time and withstand a wide range of temperatures during this limbo phase.  The eggs won't start to develop until they are kept consistently warm once true incubation begins.
Eggs are laid every 2-3 days so we can expect the 2nd egg sometime Friday or Saturday.
Stay Tuned...........
