This afternoon at about 5:22pm Hope, the female peregrine falcon at the Cathedral of Learning, laid her first egg of the season.
Here she is in two snapshots, above and below.
Every year she lays an egg approximately every other day until she reaches a total of four. Expect her next egg on March 13.
Watch her on the National Aviary falconcam.
