EggTurning: Turning the Egg Upstate!

OK, so I’m having a little fun with our good friends at RT’s name, but all in good fun!  Here we see a picture of Mariah turning her eggs over in the nest.  Peregrines do this from time to time, presumably so that they don’t under-incubate the eyases on one side.  You know, if you don’t keep turning them, they come out all black on the one side and doughy on the other!
