I've found several of these in Cooper's Grove lately. In my field guide to nests I learn that Turkeys nest on the ground. I'm guessing I've walked right past several nests in my explorations of the grove, and that they are very well camouflaged, in the way of natural things.
I made a point of carefully exploring the area to see if I could find any nests. I could not. Turkey feathers, yes; but they are abundant in the neighborhood.
Someone made a meal of this egg. They left it on a well-travelled foot trail, which suggests to me that it was a mammal, not another bird species. There are many foxes in the neighborhood. So Fox is currently suspect #1, until other evidence arises to suggest differently.
