Big News About Little Falcons! The First Chick has Hatched!!

How cool! At approximately 10:30am this morning, a new life was born on top of the Kodak Tower!

My fiancee was extra exited to have happened upon a very special moment in the Falcon Cam season: the first of the baby falcons has hatched this morning and we caught it on the web. Without further ado, here are the pictures we managed to capture:

The egg is mostly broken at this point, and the little one is on it’s way out!
Here it comes!

Mom gives the little one a helping beak, removing some of the shell. What a great mom!!

You need to look closely, but where I’ve highlighted the picture in a red box, you can see the new addition to the Falcon Cam. Soon to be a star! The triangular shape is it’s wing!:
Here's the little one!

Another angle of the baby, this one from up front where the good camera is. The little one is most likely sleeping:

Dad comes by to relieve the exhausted mom, so she can get herself a bite to eat:

I’ve been a falcon watcher since the Kodak bird-cam came out. It’s always a pleasure, Dad
