On Saturday April 7, 2012 the Webb Mountain Discovery Zone in Monroe, CT held their annual Egg Hunt for children.  A very different egg hunt than most egg hunts as eggs are colored to resemble wild avian eggs and are hidden along the many trails in the Discovery Zone.  Following the Egg Hunt was a demonstration by the Connecticut Audubon Society.  Three Birds of Prey were displayed: 1) Broad-winged Hawk, 2) Peregrine Falcon, and  a 3) Barn Owl (additional pics).  All three of these birds were injured in some way and, therefore, would not survive in the wild.  All three of these birds have interesting stories to tell and I recommend visiting the Audubon Society to learn more about these and the many other birds in CT.  Great job by Webb Mountain Discovery Zone.
