Four Eggs At Gulf Tower

This morning (March 17) around 11:15am sharp-eyed observers noticed that Dori had laid her fourth egg when Louie came for a bowing visit at the Gulf Tower.

 

Here they are discussing the fourth egg, no doubt.

But Dori is so tired that she forgot to pull it under her.  Ooops!   … Or maybe she’s letting this one dry.

Not to worry.  This isn’t the first time an egg has been outside her “sphere.”  When she was a first-time mother she sat like this for a few hours, then woke up and rearranged the eggs.  They all hatched successfully.

    Carol, about a year ago I wrote about the love triangle of Beauty, DotCa and Pigott in Rochester, NY: http://www.wqed.org/birdblog/2013/04/08/now-what/
    So far this year seems similar to last year for them. I’m hoping it will be a successful year for Beauty… must wait & see.
