Osprey Egg #1 Laid on the Savannah Cam

Early in the morning on March 27, the Osprey pair that's been inhabiting the Savannah nest laid their first egg! It may be hard to see when you're tuned in, but the lone egg is nested deep in the substrate of the nest bowl. In this clip, we get a definitive peek at the egg when the male rolls it after delivering a headless fish to the female.
