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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Answers will appear next Wednesday. The winner(s) will be eligible for high praise.
