The Wait is OVER!!!

Woohoo! The first egg was laid in the nest sometime early evening 3/24/17.  Here's a video of the event captured by a fan in the Netherlands (thank you!) -- looks like the egg actually drops at 4:55 into the video. Her movements and behavior in the minutes just before are really intriguing to watch!
Interesting...Durand laid this egg in the far scrape. If I recall correctly, every other year she has laid her eggs closer to the camera. Oh well... everyone is just happy to see the first egg!!!

Eggs are laid every 2-3 days so it will probably be Monday before we see another. Hooray! 👍
