September 2012

Reason to celebrate. Guess what season it is here in the jungle? It’s not Christmas, Easter or Thanksgiving, but it is equally exciting. It is now the season for collecting wild fowl eggs! Each year, as soon as the jungle acorn nuts have fallen, a certain wild bird no larger than a chicken scrapes together all the rotting leaves and vegetation from the jungle floor to make a pile that is sometimes over four feet tall and eight feet wide. The bird will then lay one huge egg each day for the next few weeks in that pile and leave it to be incubated by the heat of decomposing matter. This is the time of the year when our Hewa friends love to search through the jungle for these nests of treasures. They have already been bringing a few of these sometimes partially developed delicacies back to the village to share with us and they are anticipating a big harvest this year. Is anyone ready to join us for an egg hunt?
