    As per the request of others here to see what's inside, I cut open the strange egg that I found in one of the nests this past Friday....

    The first photo shows the outer "shell" or membrane cut with what appeared to be whites around the "inner egg"...

    The second photo shows the inner egg cracked complete with a yoke....

    I've seen an egg within an egg before. This appears to be an egg within a yolkless soft shell egg. That's a first for me!
