It Won’t Be Not Long Now

One egg will hatch very soon (photo from the National Aviary falconcam at the University of Pittsburgh)

Look at the big hole in the egg on the left (Wed, 7:10pm).  It won’t be long now.  That one may hatch tonight.

Hammer away, babies!

Update, Thursday April 25, 6:19am
Dorothy is covering all the eggs and I don’t see a discarded shell so the first one hasn’t hatched yet.  Except… what is she looking at below her?  It sure looks like a broken shell.

Is Dorothy looking at a cracked shell? (photo from the National Aviary falconcam at Univ of Pittsburgh
