The Delaware Falcon Cam is getting a lot of interest as four peregrine chicks have hatched in a nest at the Brandywine Building in Wilmington.
19 floors above the downtown sidewalks, a pair of peregrine falcons have established residence. Five eggs were laid during March, more than the usual three or four eggs in a clutch. The first hatching took place Monday, followed by three more Tuesday into Wednesday. The Department of Natural Resources has a camera trained on the nest, where the mother falcon has been feeding the hungry chicks.
