Now that the pros have chimed in.

The interloper with the jess attached to her leg four days ago was a nine year old anatum peregrine, a type that sometimes has juvenile-type markings into adulthood, and she has since come back to her falconer.

But while she was on the lam she ignored the male peregrine defending his mate and his territory and flew right into the nest box where Hartley, the female, had just laid her first egg of the season.

The video, per the falconers, showed the intruder excited about that new egg (like a grandma!) and the behavior between the two females was chummy and familiar–like they were at a baby shower.

No you don’t get to brood it, now that’s enough now move along move along hon.
