    File this under Mystery.

    Yesterday around 9:30 am I looked out in the yard and saw an egg. A large white egg in the yard. Right there at the edge of the grass next to the driveway.

    See the egg.



    A large white egg. Nothing in sight were it came from. The egg carton in the refrigerator has a dozen in it so the kids couldn't have just put it there.




    Comparing the mystery egg on the left to a grocery store large white egg on the right, the mystery egg is smaller, pointier and holding it, the shell is very thin. A slight squeeze would crack the shell and did. My daughter sealed it with wax. She thinks that it's fertilized but I don't know. In any case she now has it in her room under a light bulb. We've told her that we will not keeping a large bird as a pet but she wants to see if it hatches anyway.

    By the way, I mentioned that we have a wild turkey that hangs around but the egg is too small and the wrong color to be a turkey egg.



    On the other hand, this is filed under THIEF!

    I posed previously that we took down an old pool. We'veput down some grass seed and two Mourning Doves are stealing my grass seed.

    Terrific shot of the redtailed hawk. I so rarely seem to get a clear shot of the red tail.

    Thanks. The hawk was very high up and I used the 100x zoom but it had found a headwind and an updraft and was pretty much stationary for about 5 minutes.

    I may be wrong. Ducks happily lay on the ground and out in the open. Also, I think, lapwings. When/if it hatches post photos please.

    It certainly could be a mallard duck egg. Though it's late in the season. It's about the right size and they do come white. I have never seen a mallard anywhere close to our property but neither have I ever found such an egg on the lawn.

    Dekay’s Brown Snake (Storeria dekayi)

    A cat brought it in the house and I was able to catch it and put it outside.
