San Jose falcon mom has four new chicks
SAN JOSE, Calif. (KGO) -- Pass out the cigars. The Bay Area's favorite peregrine falcon mom has expanded her family.
All four of Clara's eggs atop San Jose City Hall have hatched, three of them on Easter Sunday and the fourth one Monday morning.
Biologists say Clara is keeping her new chicks warm and the dad Fernando is around helping. They plan to leave the family alone until May 1, when they'll climb up to determine the baby falcons' genders and put tracking bands on them.
This is Clara's sixth season giving birth above San Jose.
