Westar Energy says the Peregrine Falcon couple that nests on top of its headquarters in Topeka has laid their first eggs of the season.

Company officials say Nemeha, laid her first egg early in the morning on Friday, and delivered her second egg at 12:50 p.m. Sunday. Nemeha and her male partner Boreas have nested on top of the building since 2011.

Since the couple first arrived, Westar has constructed a special nest and installed cameras to monitor the falcons. The birds typically lay up to four eggs over a two to three day period.
