Are there any birds that eat eggs?

    Some species of parrots eat the eggs that will bear their own young, and some hens eat their own eggs as well.

    In addition to birds that eat other birds eggs, some birds – such as cowbirds or cuckoo birds – lay their eggs in other birds’ nests to be raised.  Sometimes these imposters will evict their nestmates; if not they can often out-compete them for food.  Cowbird females will sometimes eat the eggs already in the nest where they are going to lay their own eggs.
