This morning I woke up early to look for an egg.
Last night before I went to bed I saw that Dorothy, the female peregrine at University of Pittsburgh, was on her nest. That probably meant she was going to lay an egg before dawn.
Sure enough, here she is on Easter morning with her first egg of 2008. Congratulations!
To watch her at the nest, see the National Aviary’s webcam. (2018 Note: The link doesn’t work 10 years later but that’s fitting. We can’t watch Dorothy anymore but we can watch her successor, Hope, at this link.)
