Two eggs for a wintry day

As some have already seen, the female laid a second egg midday on this cold and snowy April 11th.   After the female laid the egg, the male tended to the clutch-in-progress.  He was not providing much in the way of good views of the eggs.  The second eggs came as expected, about two days after the first one was laid.    If another egg is on tap, expect to see it sometime Saturday (but don’t hold me to it!).
