A life-size guide to the eggs of six hundred of the world's bird species

A stunning new title featuring new photography from Chicago's renowned Field Museum, this book explores 600 examples at actual size, alongside pattern details, clutch images, breeding range maps, and engravings of all the birds. A table of field-guide information identifies order, family, breeding range, nesting habitat, nest characteristics, and conservation status.
