We Have an Egg at Pitt!

Published by at 2:26 pm under Nesting & Courtship,Peregrines


Dorothy laid her first egg of 2011 on Sunday, March 13 at 1:43pm.  Here are three photos of her with her first egg of the season. 


(The colors are a bit washed out. The egg is actually dark rusty red.)

Watch the peregrines at the Cathedral of Learning on the National Aviary falconcam.

    I was lucky enough to be on at the right time. it was wonderful, really tiring for her but then it’s her job and now we get to do ours, neb into her every moment & leave her no privacy.

    Missed Dori by about 15 minutes but did see Harrisburg lay her 2nd :-)
    Also the Wilmington nest is busy again with the female excavating a rather large scrape. http://www.dosbirds.org/wilmfalcons
    Have not seen anything on the Westinghouse Bridge for about a month. Might head into the valley this weekend to search with binoculars.

    Sorry for the double post, you can merge them if you want. I was just thinking though. Has a permanent solution to the issue with the Webster Hall chimneys been implemented?

    Yes the Webster Hall chimney is permanently covered. They covered it immediately after Green Boy was found dead in it.
