Oh my! This morning Morela stood over the scrape for quite a while looking very egg-y. This is the closest she’s come to laying an egg since 20 March — almost a month!
She looked egg-y yesterday morning when she bowed with Ecco …
… and 4:50pm they bowed for three minutes and touched beaks. This is a very good sign!
So will Morela lay her first egg today? Stay tuned to the National Aviary Falconcam at Univ. of Pittsburgh.

They just bowed and touched beaks again today around 2 PM EST. She called for him a few times earlier & he finally showed up. She did some scrapping in the next as well. She took off & he left a few minutes after she did.
I was so sure that Morela was about to lay an egg late this afternoon. And now (7:00 pm) the nest is empty. Maybe she’ll surprise us yet. Keeping fingers crossed!
A day later, still no egg in the scrape.
Where is Morela? Thought for sure Sunday or Monday….by Ecco and Morela’s behavior:(
Morela has been present but not egg-y anymore. 🙁
Morella is in nest again tonight and was there last night also. Never , say never, is my motto
