The fourth, and last, of the peregrine falcon eggs in the nest box at the Sherco power plant hatched sometime on Saturday. The hatchlings may be helpless, clumsy, and funny looking now, but in a few months they'll be sleek, fearsome avian predators. Keep watching the falcon cam, or the daily stills, until they fledge in a few months.

Laugh it up now...: ...but watch out later. These guys are going to be FIERCE.

Their names are Damien B. Angel, Dr. Rough 'n Tumble, President Woodrow Wilson, and Pussywillow.

(According to me, if not the Raptor Center, or whatever.)
