GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) — A pair of peregrine falcons appears to have once again hatched young in a nest atop the University of North Dakota water tower in Grand Forks.

The pair produced three youngsters each of the past three years in the nest.

Bird watcher Tim Driscoll tells the Grand Forks Herald (http://bit.ly/K9sQsf ) that he has clear evidence that the falcons have hatched at least two young. He says the female stopped flying off the nest to feed about a week ago, and instead is receiving food from her mate.

Driscoll says he recently found egg shells below the tower.
