Dorothy (peregrine falcon) at her nest at Univ of Pittsburgh, March 28, 2008Today’s photo of Dorothy, the female peregrine falcon at University of Pittsburgh, looks almost exactly like the one I captured on Easter Day.  The difference is that by now she’s laid 3 eggs. 

There were only 2 eggs in the nest last night; there were 3 this morning. 

If Dorothy follows her normal pattern, she’ll produce a fourth egg two days from now.

Watch her “live” on the National Aviary’s webcam
