Thanks to Charlotte Carlson of Sunapee, NH, we have a new Mystery Photo! Do you know whose eggs these are? Tomorrow’s photo will identify their producers.

I’m thinking Wild Turkey too. The speckles match and they are big!

I agree–wild turkey–only large ground nesting bird I can think of.
If you haven’t seen the fabulous video “My Life as a Turkey”, check it out on line:
After a local farmer left a bowl of eggs on Joe Hutto’s front porch, his life was forever changed. Hutto, possessing a broad background in the natural sciences and an interest in imprinting young animals, incubated the eggs and waited for them to hatch. As the chicks emerged from their shells, they locked eyes with an unusual but dedicated mother. One man’s remarkable experience of raising a group of wild turkey hatchlings to adulthood.

Would guess wild turkey also because of the large # of eggs.
