We're so happy to see that all five of Mariah and Kaver's eggs have now hatched, just in time for Mother's Day! The fifth egg hatched yesterday afternoon. This is an exciting time to watch the Rochester Falconcam - the five fluffy eyases need to grow so Mariah and Kaver will be busy feeding five hungry beaks.
The first Peregrine Falcon chicks have hatched over at the Rochester Falconcam! Parents Mariah and Kaver are going to be busy during the next weeks feeding their chicks, which will be full-grown falcons in just six weeks. Head on over to the Falconcam's blog, Imprints, to see the first photos of the eyases. (Remember, Birdorable supports the Falconcam with 30% of the sales from our Mariah & Kaver section going to the Genesee Valley Audubon Society)
The Common Kestrel is native to parts of Europe, Asia and Africa. They hunt by hovering 10 to 20 meters over the ground in search of prey. These small birds of prey are often seen hovering by highways, looking for mice, voles and other small rodents. This is our totally cute version of the Common Kestrel and our 99th Birdorable species:
Mariah and Kaver are a pair of Peregrine Falcons that are the stars of the Genesee Valley Audubon Society's Rochester Falconcam. The Falconcam operates in the spring during Mariah & Kaver's courtship and nesting season. We have created three Birdorable Mariah & Kaver designs which will support the Falconcam. We are proud to announce that 30% of the retail price for all Birdorable Mariah and Kaver product sales will be donated to the Rochester Falconcam. Support the Falconcam in Birdorable style!
