According to the Hawkwatch at Franklin Blog, http://sunnydixie.blogspot.com/" rel="nofollow"> http://sunnydixie.blogspot.com/ , the first egg was laid around noon today during a vicious wind and rain storm. Congrats Franklin!

Here is the formel an hour before (I'm on Central time ~ she'd already been there for over an hour when this was taken):

Right after the egg was laid you catch a glimpse as she stands up to roll it

Lots of coming and going from the nest yesterday. The egg was left uncovered for long periods of time. Great photos from the hi-res camera and Franklin personnel posted on http://sunnydixie.blogspot.com/

Today there have been large sprigs of pine brought to the nest, and a large chunk of bark:

After rearranging repeatedly, here's what the nest looked like:

Then some oak leaves were brought in:

By contrast, here is what the nest looked like yesterday. Again, another rainy dark day in Philadelphia:

Mate delivers prey (a mouse?) to the Hawk that was sitting on the nest (right) and it flies off with its meal (you can see it in its mouth):

They are eating well, at least! Plenty of prey in the area.
