Contact The Charleston Museum for image use and credit instructions.


One of two skua (Catharacta skua skua) eggs (see CBE8893 - CBE8894) collected by an unknown collector for S. Graham. The nest of this bird suggests that it is always on the ground consisting of moss and grass, although no notes were recorded for these specific eggs. It was later acquired by Ernest Tabor.
