Dorothy laid her first egg last night at approximately 12:55am. I was asleep but learned the time thanks to @BurghFan_OS who reported it on Twitter.
This morning I saw the egg briefly at 5:00am but was unable to capture a nice picture of it because Dorothy stepped off the perch to stand over it … and fall asleep.
It took a long time to capture a picture. I watched her for two hours to get this one!
Happy egg! Happy First Day of Spring!
E2 brought Dorothy some breakfast and is guarding the egg while she eats.
