Signs of spring: cardinal egg on the ground

It rained last night, and this morning I found a cardinal’s egg on the front lawn. Not sure how related those two events are. I’ve been seeing lots of territorial behavior in the neighborhood avifauna lately.

It might not show up on the 300-pixel-square image above, but if you click the picture, it’ll take you to the full-size capture from my phone. I kind of like the moisture beads on the shell.
