      They now have chicks I have seen two maybe more I have been watching them through the incubation period and was amazed that both falcons took it in turns to sit on eggs the grizzly bit is when they bring back a pigeon and eat it

        There are now four chicks a fifth one died in the cold weather they seem to be eating all the time the parents bring them food about four times a day we used to have about a dozen pigeons on our roof all the time they have all gone as we are only about four hundred yards from their nest they certainly keep the pigeons under control

        The chicks are now growing up and going out on a ledge outside nest box when they are feeding they are like little vultures and if the sound is on it is deafening they will soon be flying and the adults will teach them to hunt by dropping food while flying above them and they have to catch it in mid air

            Usually Falcons only lay 3 or 4 eggs so 5 is unusual. Chicks will begin to fly at around 6 weeks and then the parents share the responsibility of teaching them to hunt. Once this training is done the chicks will be on their own. Fascinating to watch the parent birds of prey going out hunting together then calling the chicks to flight as they come back with the food which if they are to eat they must catch in mid flight.
