On March 28, 2020, Lil’ Kool returned to Rockford to join Louise in having their second clutch of eggs.
The fourth and last egg was laid on April 18, 2020. A female peregrine usually lays 3 or 4 eggs. The eggs are slightly smaller than a chicken egg, and are mottled with a dark, reddish-brown pigment. Louise will now do most of the incubating, which takes about 33 days. While she flies off to feed, Lil’ Kool will incubate the eggs.
By the week of May 18th we should see peregrine chicks!
