Thanks, NCA!  I thought there was one in there by the way she was acting but it's sooo hard to see in the box!

Because of the shadows/lighting, I can't get the right combo of lighting, contrast, color and saturation to make it show up better.  Around 3 minutes in video, she stands up for the final time and I'm pretty sure the egg is visible at that time.  She takes really deep pushes and then lifts between pushes.  Some just stay low the entire time.  I had posted here and on BCAW that she was in labor, but then deleted my post because I wasn't sure, especially since I couldn't see an egg and her pushing technique.

Anyway, it's here. Sorry I couldn't get the picture any better for you guys.

Posted on Harlequin:

April 4, 2014
First Egg of 2014!
It looks as if Quest and Skye are officially a couple. Quest laid her first egg of 2014 on Wednesday, April 2nd at 2:49 pm. Typically, a Peregrine falcon lays eggs every 48 hours and can lay as many as six. Last year Quest and Kendal had four eggs, which all hatched, so we can likely expect a few more. Six-year-old Quest is an experienced parent—she had her first hatchling, Harlequin, in 2011—but this is a three-year-old Skye’s first crack at fatherhood. Hopefully, he proves to be as capable a provider as Kendal.

Speaking of Kendal, everyone will remember that he was injured in a severe storm last July. After initially being cared for by the Canadian Wildlife Centre and Canadian Peregrine Foundation, Kendal is still working his way back from a fractured coracoid that prevents him from fully extending his wing at the Owl Foundation—a registered Canadian charitable organization in the Niagara Peninsula near St. Catherines, Ontario. We’ll share news on Kendal as we receive it.

In the meantime, stay tuned for more eggs, more news and more excitement….

Harlequin encourages anyone who wishes to learn more about peregrines, pledge support or discover what they can do to help this threatened species to visit the Canadian Peregrine Foundation at www.peregrine-foundation.ca
