Fundstueck / Found

Dieses Rebhuhn-Ei habe ich heute morgen auf dem Spaziergang gefunden. Es lag am Wegrand, und war schon recht kalt. Aber es ist unversehrt. Die Farbe ist auf den Bildern viel zu hell – das Ei hat eine oliv-braune Farbe. Deutlich sieht man auch, dass das Vorderende konisch zulaeuft. Diese Eiform ist typisch fuer Bodenbrueter – das Ei kullert nicht weg, sondern dreht sich um die eigene Achse.

I found this partridge egg on a walk this morning on the side of the path. It was already fairly cold, but otherwise intact. The colour is far too light in these picturse – in reality, the egg has an olive colouring. One can also clearly see the tapered top end of the egg. This is typical for ground-nesting birds, as the egg pivots around its centre axis, thus preventing it from rolling away, .
