And then there were three!

The 2 chicks hatched yesterday were fed quite regularly today:

Day 2, going to get prey from male

Day 2, bringing prey to feed

Day 2, feeding the chicks

At around 5pm, there was clear view of the chicks and the remaining egg. I thought I could see a crack, but with the resolution could not be too sure. Then at 7:15pm, the falcon was discarding a piece of eggshell and eating it.

It wasn't until 8:45pm that she finally got up and revealed that, indeed, the 3rd chick had hatched. I think it's the one on the left on the shot below, it looks a little bit less fluffy and fat...
