After a very turbulent early season, there is some wonderful news out of the Rochester Falconcam today. The star Peregrine Falcon pair Beauty and Dot.ca became proud parents with the hatching of their first chick early this morning. Here is a screen shot of Beauty, the fluffy chick, and the two remaining eggs.

The season began with Beauty in rehab and different female Peregrine Falcon at the nest site. In fact, one of those remaining eggs wasn't even laid by Beauty!
