House Sparrow Egg
Researchers at Cornell University are asking people to submit photos of house sparrow eggs to help them better understand variations in egg spotting. Full details here.

This seems to be a good use of the eggs I've been pulling out of house sparrow nests. (And then Lily and I can do our own house sparrow egg experiments at home--like, "how long will an egg covered in grass last in our yard before a predator gets it.")

Revenge of the house sparrow
My recommendation, if you are going to do something like this: don't keep the house sparrow egg in your shirt pocket.
