PITTSBURGH — The National Aviary is getting a new addition!
After a courtship that began earlier this year, the aviary’s Andean Condors, Lurch and Lianni, are now caring for an egg.
The egg was laid earlier this month and if all goes well, is expected to hatch in early June.
Lianni is celebrating her 36th birthday Thursday and will spend the day sitting on her egg. Lurch will take turns sitting on the egg so Lianni can stretch her legs.
Lianni is a special bird, aviary officials say, because in 2012, she got sick and needed extreme measures, including a blood transfusion, to save her life.
She now leads a normal, active life.
