THE third hatchling of the year for Frodocam stars, peregrine falcons Frodo and Frieda, hatched high above Brisbane this afternoon
The white, fluffy chick hatched about 2pm on the falcons’ penthouse ledge above the Brisbane River.
The previous hatchling arrived about 6am today.
Frodo and Frieda now begin the task of keeping food up to the ravenous chicks.
Watch Frodocam as the chicks grow – fast!
We should also be able to collect some (gory) video of the falcons feeding their young, mostly on feral pigeons hunted in their inner-city territory.
This will be the fourth clutch of chicks raised on webcam by this family. It could well be the eighth clutch raised in this nest by this pair.
