our class trimmed a forest of cattail plants in our pond, and came across a nest of red shouldered blackbird.
Found a duck egg there, and was wondering if it is alive or dead??
It is completely dark on the other side. I don't see any veins.
Do you have any idea if what day it's on? If it were dead it would most likely be clear with a blood ring, but I think that this egg is so advanced and grown that you can't see through it. It is most likely going to hatch in the next week or so if its alive.
