    Our EE (who survived a fox attack three weeks ago) laid her first egg today. She started squatting last week and this morning I could tell she was looking for "her place." Fortunately she found the nest box. She is 27 weeks tomorrow!! I came into work late because I *knew* today would be the day!

    Here is Inga in the nest box this morning
