British Birds" nests by R. Kearton Download PDF EPUB FB2

British birds’ eggs are found in a variety of shapes, sizes and colours. Although the default colour of a bird’s egg is white due to the calcium carbonate from which the shell is made, other pigments can cause eggs to take on different colours and patterns. Passerines tend to lay coloured eggs: birds that build their nests in trees are more.

This book comprises a simple guide to the identification of the nests of common British birds. This antique text was published separately from the book to which it belongs (‘The Young People’s Nature-Study Book’) in the hope that it would prove of some value on its own.
