One of four red-shouldered hawk (Buteo lineatus lineatus) eggs collected from Sandy Creek in Oswego county, New York (see CBE884 - CBE887). The clutch was collected in April 1910 by L.C. Snyder. Snyder noted the following about the nest: "in maple tree 32 feet up. Compiled of sticks lined with green hemlock." The clutch was later acquired by Alexander Sprunt, Jr.

Original set mark: 100/4, Snyder collection.
