It's a baby! A baby falcon that is (which are formally called an eyas).
Earlier on Monday morning, a Peregrine falcon chick hatched, and boy is the bird cute!

A Peregrine falcon mom has been nesting on the Maricopa County Administration Building in downtown Phoenix caring for two eggs, but we're still waiting on the second egg to hatch.

Peregrine falcons have been besting in the area for more than a decade, the Arizona Game & Fish Department said. An agreement between the county and the department allows the department to monitor the birds during the nesting process.
If you'd like to watch the falcon and her chicks, the department is streaming a live video.
Within the span of a seven year period, only two chicks have made it through the age of fledging, the department said.
