Mar 23 2008
This morning I woke up early to look for an egg.
Last night before I went to bed I saw that Dorothy, the female peregrine at University of Pittsburgh, was on her nest. That probably meant she was going to lay an egg before dawn.
Sure enough, here she is on Easter morning with her first egg of 2008. Congratulations!
To watch her at the nest, see the National Aviary’s webcam
March 25, 2008, 2:15pm: Dorothy laid her second egg today at about 2:15pm. Thanks to two sharp observers who sent me comments to alert me. It turns out that at 2:15pm I was outdoors watching the Cathedral of Learning. Suddenly Dorothy and Erie began a courtship flight. Maybe their flying meant “happy egg.”
