Linda Woods Reports:

I promised myself this time that I would arrive at the "crack of dawn" in order to witness a "changing of the guards". Well at 08:00 it has to be "the crack of dawn" somewhere. As I waited the adult was restless on the eggs and I was hopeful that a handing off of the nest was close to happening.
It did about an hour later and at approx 09:15 Rhea Mae appeared on the ledge! and Tiago was more than happy to get up, shake himself off, and leave.
Rhea Mae didn't leave anytime before she settled on the eggs herself. Finally got a photo of the eggs.

Linda Woods Reports:

While I have been to the Sheraton and waited for Rhea Mae to come off the nest tray, that hasn't happened so far. But with the camera I have captured this shot of EGG NUMBER THREE! I am hoping to capture a better image on Sunday.

Linda Woods Reports:

While Mark and I tried to re-establish communication with the Osler camera, Tiago took his turn at keeping the single egg warm, while Rhea Mae preened on the "Exchange Tower" south of the Sheraton. A second egg was expected Sunday, but didn't appear. This being Rhea Mae's first clutch, she may just be "testing the waters". It's still early in the season, so there is still lots of time.

Early this morning, the adult pair of peregrines (Tiago & Rhea Mae), delivered this first egg at the Sheraton Centre Hotel!

This is the adult female's first egg ever !

Rhea Mae was hatched in Rochester, New York in 2006.

With many thanks to Carol from Rochester New York, who was kind enough to send us a baby picture of Rhea Mae. As you have probably noticed, she looks a little different now!

Cute!

Thanks Carol.

Linda Woods Reports:

A quick check of the cameras and found them both operating. But there in the shadows was a dark silhouette. Can't tell who it is, but I bet it's Rhea Mae.

Linda Woods Reports:

While checking on the internet camera, Rhea Mae dropped by to say hello. I didn't see Tiago today, but he is in the area.
