A little white and fluffy bundle of joy has arrived at a nursery high above the streets of Harrisburg.
The baby peregrine falcon, or eyas, hatched sometime Wednesday evening. The egg was the first to hatch of four laid by a new female who took over the nest in the state Department of Environmental Protection building earlier this year.
Now the fun begins as falcon watchers await the arrival of three more and the feeding regimen begins. Watch on the PA falconcam as papa falcon swoops into the nesting box with meals and feed the baby. On the menu? Usually pigeons, starlings and other birds.
