Eggs and the birds that lay them
Here’s an eggscellent idea for Easter! Go to the National Aviary’s Eggstravaganza this weekend. You can get your picture taken with the Easter Bunny and there’s an egg hunt included in the price of admission. Can you think of a better place to hunt for eggs than in a sanctuary filled with birds that lay them?
