Thanks, Warren! First time I've been able to witness the eggs hatching at a falcon cam!
There is definitely at least one white fluffy chick. I first started seeing it at 8:30pm tonight. It seems larger than the eggs, and active.
I can see three eggs, two of which have prominent holes in them. Female is quite antsy, and is tending the eggs and chick.
It's getting dark now, but the white chick shows up under the left side of her breast next to her left wing.
We were downtown at the Seattle art museum last week, and I pointed out the north ledge (at least that's where I think the nest is) on the 1201 3rd Av Bldg. We used to call it the WAMU bldg. I told my sister that the PEFA was on eggs. Wow, thank you so much!
Yours, Carol Schulz

I happened to check in on the downtown Seattle peregrines this afternoon (link below). The parents had a shift change about a minute after I started watching. As the male (I think) got up, I noticed only 3 brown eggs and one white ball of fluff where there had been 4 eggs and no fluff. One of the other eggs seemed to have a hole developing, though I only got a brief, grainy glimpse. The bird that's on the nest now is acting like she's sitting on an ant nest, fidgeting much more than before. Has anyone else been watching? Do we have chicks?
