Osprey Eggs 2 – The Oologist

The stunning beauty of osprey eggs was not lost on the old naturalists. There was gamesmanship of climbing to nests to collect the eggs. Osprey egg-collecting played a major role in the population decline in the 19th and 20th centuries. There were even journals devoted to it.
