2nd Peregrine Falcon Egg Arrives At Rachel Carson Building Nest In Harrisburg

Eggs have begun to arrive for the pair of peregrine falcons nesting on the 15th floor of the Rachel Carson Building in Harrisburg.  So far two eggs have made an appearance, but there will probably be more.

While the female is busy laying the eggs, the male has increased his hunting to provide food for his mate.  After the eggs are all laid, the male and female will share egg tending and hunting duties.
