    Yes, it would be the best thing to do to put it back. It is illegal for you to take eggs from wild bird's nests, even if the nest appears abandoned.

    If you found it on the ground then it's fine for her to raise it. They are just very hard to raise...

    In the US it is illegal to tamper with wild songbird nests or eggs - they are protected by federal law. I agree with the others who said, put it back.
