Scrambled eggs puzzle

Can you crack these bird anagrams?

Many wild birds nest and lay eggs in spring. Can you unscramble the bird names and discover who the eggs belong to?

  • Solve the anagrams to identify the bird eggs
  • Keep your eyes peeled for broken eggshells in the wild – they often fall from nests after baby birds hatch
  • Use your puzzle answers to identify the real eggs you find!

Did you know? Bird nests and eggs have special protection. It’s illegal to take them from the wild, thanks to the Wild Bird Act 1954.
