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.

  1. I see today 3/13 at 1:05 pm hope is sitting on the egg (or the egg is gone). Does that mean she is done laying?

  2. How uplifting it is to see the brave and capable Hope reach out to continue her family tree, knowledge of which is imprinted in her cranial lobes and empowers her babies, in part, to survive. Thanks, will follow.
