Dori laid her second egg at the Gulf Tower in downtown Pittsburgh around 3:00pm EDT today.  She kept it sheltered because it’s been raining hard all day.

 

Above, Dori looks at her two eggs while Louie has gone to prepare a meal for her.  Below he shows her what he’s caught –  something small, dark and wet.

p.s.  Meanwhile at Pitt, Dorothy looks like she’ll lay an egg any minute now… except she didn’t…

    That’s exactly what I said to a friend I was watching the cam with. “Dorothy sure looks like she’s ready to lay an egg.” Then up and away she went. Still early for her. I’ll really start watching closely come tomorrow.

    Dori is winning on eggs 2-0 against Dorothy right now. I hope we have a better turnout at COL this year than last year.

    Kate, do you think Dorothy is getting too old to lay eggs that will hatch?

    Nellie, I don’t know. We’ll have to wait and see.
