Identifying Bird Eggs



Northern Californian Cathe Holden blogs at "Just Something I Made". She shares some really great ideas, sources and projects. If you like to make things, you may want to check out her blog for inspiration. She's one of the most creative ladies out there.

Last summer she posted this Victorian lithograph of birds' eggs, above, with the accompanying chart that identifies them, below.

Fantastic illustration, eggs are so beautiful.

I've just spent a lovely quarter of an hour, or so, catching up with posts I've missed recently here, some fab photos. I especially love the red seaweed, we have nothing like that here, it's all green or black.

Boy, what a busy week for me, I didn't even have time to blog, but I traveled your posts and drooled, of course, over your California livin'...sigh...you make me long for a road trip.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Please may I copy your blog page to look at and learn the eggs?

Very beautiful. I remember as a child going to various country houses and looking into drawers and cabinets full of bird eggs and butterflies and beetles and these tiny but varied natural treasures are what fascinate me most. I never touched eggs as a child even though I knew the locations of many nests and I am still just as awed by them now as I was then.

that's a lovely chart, both useful and decorative,
