Ooooh, here’s a word for April …
Sounds more like “Oh!” … not “Ooooh.”
Because April is a month filled with …
and Easter eggs.
Maybe the shape of the word will give you a clue …
Okay, maybe a visual is better …
Eggs. It’s all about eggs.
Oology is the branch of ornithology that studies birds’ eggs.
Here’s one for the record book: A giant “elephant bird” intact fossilized egg was sold at auction in 2013 for $101,813! Elephant birds were a kind of predecessor to the ostrich, living in Madagascar between the 13th and 17th centuries. The elephant bird egg was 120 times bigger than an average chicken egg … breakfast for a crowd.
And then there are those chocolate eggs that have the pastel sugar coatings around them! Just sayin…..
Yes, Winnie ~~ I have a degree in the study of those!
There is always that little bit of excited wonder that comes over people when the discover a nest of eggs, isn’t there. It’s a universal love.
