Contact The Charleston Museum for image use and credit instructions.


One of two parasitic jaeger eggs (CBE8895 - CBE8896) collected by an unknown collector for W. Raine. The collector noted the egg was collected right after being laid and Raine described the nest as composed "of grass, sticks and on the ground on a hillock near a marsh." It was later acquired by Ernest Tabor.
