Egg Number TWO!
We're now up to TWO eggs in the nest - the second one laid sometime during the night. Evidently, Durand's reproductive system is in "nocturnal mode" with both of the first two eggs this season laid under the cover of darkness. Here is the clutch of two barely visible at first light this morning:

While it is certainly exciting to tune in first thing and see an egg, hopefully, the next egg(s) will be laid during daylight hours giving anxious viewers an opportunity to witness it!!!
