Minnesota naturalist Carrol Henderson uses the vast egg collection of the late Ralph Handsaker as the starting point for a fascinating account of oology and its role in the origins of modern birdwatching, scientific ornithology, and bird conservation. Handsaker collected more than 4,000 eggs in his life. Far from being silent specimens in a cabinet, Ralph's eggs talk to us about how modern birding and bird conservation got its start.
