There is an abandoned robin's egg in the nest in my bushes, is this something I can save/display somehow?

I watched the Robin for a month, the eggs hatched and three birds were raised. The flew away one day last month. There's been one left over egg in the nest now ever since then. I know the mother Robin has not returned so the egg is most likely never going to hatch. I was going to trim the bushes this weekend and probably remove the nest.
I was wondering if the egg itself could be drilled and emptied and preserved?
I know there are laws about domestic migratory birds as well, but not sure if Robins are covered.
