Eleanor claiming credit for not
Eleanor claiming credit for not one, but two eggs! We are learning to sneak in and get Dolley’s before Eleanor gets in there–otherwise, she might just settle in for a nice long sit. Notice the pine shavings on her feathers–while she is waiting for the egg to arrive, she amuses herself by picking up bits of pine shavings from outside her box and either depositing them inside or, for reasons we don’t at all understand, laying them gently on her back behind her wings. It must be instinct, but what?
