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.
