Stumbling upon an egg-filled bird’s nest is one of the many delights of nature exploration. During the frenetic breeding season, this can happen across all natural areas and even in many built environments. If one or both parents are nearby, identifying the species occupying the nest is fairly straightforward; if not, it remains a mystery who the owner of the nest is. With this portable reference in tow, you can develop a deeper understanding of bird nests and eggs, while equipping yourself with the necessary identification tips. Beautiful illustrations of the typical nest and egg of 24 common species are annotated with notes on nesting habitat, eggs colors and patterns, and more.
