Evanston Chicks Hatch!

The Evanston Chicks Hatch!

I wish we had nest cameras at ALL of our sites. It is such a very cool thing to be able to take a bit of time out of your work day and click in to watch wild peregrines doing their breeding thang!

Today, I had a busy day here in the Insect department, as we are preparing our collection for a new databasing system at the museum. It’s all very cool and I can’t wait until we have our stuff perfectly cataloged and such.

But, a day at the desk means no falcons! Or does it? I decided to pull up both the Evanston Library Falcon Cam and the Waukegan Falcon Cam and let them run in the background. Little did I know that I’d get to watch the Evanston chicks hatch!

I did a little collage of the pictures I saved from the web cam throughout the day. Obviously, you can’t really see anything on the small version, but if you look at the large version, you can see it all unfold.

As I left work this evening, I had a big smile on my face. Welcome to the world, little Evanston falcons!
