Yeah, here we think of the rat snakes as raiding bird nests and the scarlets digging up reptile eggs, but count the common kingsnakes too. My mother in law spotted a chain king raiding a bird nest in a bush next to her house in GA (I didn't believe it until she sent me the photos), and I remember reading an account of getula diet in South Carolina as consisting largely of other snakes and turtle eggs they dig up. Come to think of it I've seen photos somewhere of a chain king digging up box turtle eggs. I figure any generalist on warmblooded prey will probably eat bird eggs, and any generalist that includes cold blooded would take reptile eggs.
