While walking, I cam across a intact robin's egg laying in the dirt at the
edge of a parking lot.
Can any of you Tweeters tell me:
Can an egg be stolen from a nest without being broken?
Could the mamma robin have HAD to just stop where she was and lay her egg?
Are there any other senarios where a undamaged robin egg could have ended up
on the ground?
Do any ground nesting birds lay robin's egg blue eggs?
