Dorothy and E2′s first egg has hatched at the Cathedral of Learning (approximately 6:25am).

Good morning, Dorothy and baby!

Watch for the first feeding and E2′s moment to meet his first hatchling of 2013.

 

Updates:

6:36am:  A peek at the tiny baby (white fluffy near the eggs; you can see his beak).  Also look at the dark egg with the white seam near Dorothy’s foot.  It’s getting ready to hatch.

    E2 delivered the first meal around 9:42am and Dorothy allowed him to chick-sit for a short time. Congrats Dorothy & E2!

    Hope we get at least four this year! It’d be awesome to see the nest box overflowing with five.
