The Book of Eggs: A Lifesize Guide to the Eggs of Six Hundred of the World's Bird Species

The Book of Eggs: A Lifesize Guide to the Eggs of Six Hundred of the World's Bird Species

Featuring new photography from Chicagos renowned Field Museum, The Book of Eggs explores 600 examples at actual size, alongside pattern details, clutch images, breeding range maps, and engravings of all the birds.


A field-guide information table identifies order, family, breeding range, nesting habitat, nest characteristics, and conservation status. This accompanies an expert narrative revealing the latest research and thinking on social structure; reproductive strategies; egg colour, maculation, and size; and incubation behaviour.


Arranged taxonomically, according to evolutionary relationships, the book brings to light intriguing aspects of breeding biology. The result is a visual delight and an essential reference for every bird enthusiast, natural historian, and conservationist.
