On our walk this morning near Bailieboro, we frightened a large, blackish bird from a pile of shrubbery, so I investigated why it had been there.  Low and behold, she was sitting on eggs ! Through a little research, I determined them to be the eggs of a Wild Turkey. The eggs have fine brown markings on them.
