Peregrine falcon lays eggs in UdeM’s tower

UdeM's peregrine falcon, nicknamed Eve, laid two eggs in two days in UdeM's tower 'university.

A peregrine falcon has taken up residence in the tower of the Université de Montréal. The bird, nicknamed Eve, laid a second egg on Tuesday after laying a first two days earlier. Eve is expected to lay two more eggs by Sunday. It will take about 35 days before you see them hatch.

It is possible to see the falcons live thanks to the cameras of the University of Montreal, whose images are broadcast on the YouTube channel Faucons UdeM. A Facebook page, Faucons de l’UdeM/UdeM Falcons, is also dedicated to them.

The peregrine falcon nesting box, located on the 23rd floor of the Roger-Gaudry Pavilion tower, facing the Notre-Dame-des-Neiges cemetery, was installed in 2008 after the University of Montreal saw falcons for the first time in 2007. The first two occupants were Roger and Spirit, who had babies in 2009.

Remember that the peregrine falcon made headlines the last month in a Quebec government advertisement in which English was omnipresent to illustrate the decline of French.
