When the red-tailed hawk laid her first egg last Monday, birders knew they were in for an Easter egg treat. In each of the last four springs, the hawk, known as a formel haggard but called "Mom" by her fans, laid three eggs three days apart. If the pattern continued, Monday's egg would be followed by a second on Thursday, which it was. And as hawk watchers monitored a webcam feed streamed online by the Franklin Institute, they saw a third egg appear Sunday morning. "You can see things happen that you're not really supposed to see, because normally these nests are at the top of pine trees or at the top of cliffs," said Della Micah, a self-described hawk fanatic.

When the mother red-tailed hawk laid her first egg last Monday, birdwatchers knew they were in for an Easter egg treat. Each of the past four springs, the hawk, known as a formel haggard but called "Mom" by her fans, laid three eggs, three days apart. If the pattern continued, Monday's egg would be followed by a second on Thursday - which indeed came. And as hawk watchers monitored a webcam feed streamed online by the Franklin Institute, they saw a third egg appear Sunday morning.

Kingsway Church in Cherry Hill used to host a modest Easter egg hunt, by Pastor Bryon White's standards: about 3,000 eggs, and 400 children and parents. White, however, had been harboring greater ambitions. "I kind of had this grand vision of 25,000 eggs," he said. When he shared his idea with staff at the Assembly of God church before last Easter, "people looked at me like I was insane," White said. He now presides over what he believes to be Cherry Hill's largest egg hunt.

Ever see a predator commit suicide? In a video captured at Duke Farms, a Central Jersey estate turned environmental center, a red-tailed hawk dares to fly at a bald eagles' nest where eggs were about to hatch. In a major miscalculation, the hawk fails to see an eagle sitting on the nest and looking directly at it , or, cocky from triumphing over mice and little bunnies, thinks it's super-sneaky-fast or king of any beak-and-claw fight. Four seconds into the video, the hawk appears.

Mariah Bey was the first to arrive in the kitchen for our third cooking lesson. "Hellooooo," she crooned, throwing her arms wide open to announce herself. "What are we cooking today?" "Omelets," I said. "And you get to decide what to put in. I have lots of choices: mushrooms, peppers, greens, cheese, tomatoes. And we're also going to dye eggs for Easter. " "We're going to dye eggs!" she cried, her eyes filling with excitement. "This is the best cooking class ever!" I've been cooking once a week with fifth- and sixth-grade girls from St. Martin de Porres school in North Philadelphia, with the goal of improving not only their culinary skills but also their nutrition with easy meals they can make themselves.

Just eight years ago, human egg freezing was an unproven, hit-or-miss, costly technology being hyped as a way to defy biological clocks. It's still expensive, but now, it works. On Wednesday, the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, the professional organization of fertility specialists, declared that egg freezing should no longer be considered experimental because the rates of pregnancies - and healthy offspring - were comparable to using fresh eggs. That's a dramatic shift from 2004, when the society said egg freezing should be provided only as part of a research study, with strict oversight and at no charge, to patients with no other hope of having their own genetic children.

Pennsylvania Health Secretary Eli Avila, who became known in Harrisburg for his dispute with a diner owner over the freshness of his egg sandwich, has resigned his position to pursue "other interests. " Gov. Corbett made the announcement through a news release today which gave only one other reason for Avila's departure: that he wanted to spend more time with his family who live in New York. Avila became the butt of water cooler jokes and a subject of newspaper headlines after he arrived in Harrisburg and almost immediately got into a kerfuffle with a Richard Hanna, owner of Roxy's Cafe, about the quality of his breakfast sandwich.
