Last year the female at Cobb died on cam due to being egg bound, it was tragic.  

Good she was able to expel it.

Dorothy expelled the egg. Will she recover now? Does this mean her egg-laying days are over? What about the eggs in the scrape now?

I watched that story unfold last year and it was very sad to watch.

Well Kate tweeted earlier that she and E2 were seen mating this afternoon ..so she's obviously recovered!  I don't know what the future will bring...my first experience personally with hen-o-pause in action.  In other elder falcons I've seen on cams, they just stopped laying eggs entirely..no issues like this.

I should also point out that KathyQ is 15 this year and she just laid 4 eggs, so is SW in Cleveland.  And we have Erin and WW here who are both 16 this year - so we'll see if they lay eggs successfully.  Learning experience for all of us.

in cage birds egg binding is caused by a lack of calcium, or vitamin D, which allows the body to use calcium, could be Dorthy's diet or vitamin deficiency

Somehow I don't think Dorothy was "dropp[ing] by to say hey."  More like she was dropping by to say "HEY! GET OUT MY TERRITORY!"
