A Northern Flicker in flight (carrying egg) in Howard Co., Maryland (4/23/2015). Photographer notes: "I happened to catch this Flicker in flight with an egg in its bill. I have read about birds removing eggs from the nests of other birds. Not certain why this bird was carrying the egg. Was it a dud and the bird was removing it from its own nest?" Photo by Bonnie Ott. (MBP list)
