I have found an egg ,while working on a  suburban melbourne  building
site(im a landscaper ) .its about the size of a bantams egg although its
rather elongated , its bluish green and covered in flecks 
I am going to take it into the museum ,who will happily id it  , but
does any one have any sugestions on where online  to look before I take
it in , im very curious , 

Not having much of an idea about eggs , I guessed what it might not be 
Wood ducks I guessed have a white egg , as do most parrots?  What about
owls and frogmouths? Maybe a cuckoo?  Or a curajong?
