Oh happy day! Chick #2!

We have our second peregrine chick of 2020! The second egg hatched today at about 6pm. It has been a long 39 days since the first egg was laid. The new baby is very tired right now. Birds have an ‘egg tooth’ on their beak, which they use to work away at the inside of the shell until it breaks apart.  It's a very exhausting process! The tooth will eventually fall off as the chick grows. Moxie will start to feed the chick soon, and the other two eggs should hatch in a few days.
