Falcon season has begun.

City officials were surprised to learn upon arriving at work Friday morning that Clara, a peregrine falcon that lives in the upper reaches of City Hall, had delivered its first egg—five days earlier than expected. Last year, Clara laid her first egg on Mar. 2, which was 10 days earlier than in 2009.

According to a city press release, falcons typically lay their eggs in 56-hour intervals until a clutch of four eggs is complete.

This is the fifth nesting season between Clara and her partner, Esteban Colbert.
