Egg-citing New Art Print!

Birds’ eggs are among the most beautiful and intricate self-contained systems in nature. They are inspiring to gaze at, with their delicate colors and patterns. Hues of green, blue, red, and cream pop off the subtle parchment-paper background of our new print showcasing the eggs of common North American birds.

These 32 life-size eggs were hand-painted by Bartels Science Illustration Intern Virginia Greene, and each egg is identified by species. The 11″ x 17″ print hearkens back to the heyday of oology, when collectors obsessed over the diversity of bird eggs. Reminiscent of a plate from an antique book, the print is suitable for hanging with or without a frame. 

Get the newest Cornell Lab of Ornithology print for your donation of $50. For a limited time, you also have the option to get your print signed—but hurry, Virginia is leaving us soon! Once her signed prints are gone, this option will disappear. All donations go to support NestWatch’s mission to protect nesting birds through education and research.
