LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - The peregrine falcons that have nested for years on the Nebraska Capitol have failed in their second attempt this year.

The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission says 19/K and his mate, Alley, began their second attempt near the end of May, when she laid three eggs in a nest box on the 18th floor.

Two of the eggs disappeared over the past week. By Monday the parents were incubating the remaining egg infrequently. Neither was seen at the box Tuesday.

The commission’s nongame bird program manager, Joel Jorgensen, says the egg isn’t expected to hatch.

Their first attempt in a nest at the base of the Capitol rotunda also ended in failure.
