Take Our Bird Egg Challenge

DSCN9976Written By: Jim Wright for Duke Farms and Conserve Wildlife Foundation

How good are you at identifying bird eggs?

Above are an assortment of eggs and a possible birdie (for size comparison purposes).

Three are replicas,  the fourth is real, and the possible birdie, well, I suppose is real as well.

From left, to right, what kind of bird would lay each of the eggs, and which egg is real?

Clue: Two are raptor eggs, and two are not.

Send your answers to celeryfarm@mail.com. Answers will appear next Wednesday.

The winner(s) will be eligible for high praise.
