A Lot of Eggs in Their Basket

One could say that the Chicago Field Museum is putting a lot of eggs in one basket, with the publication of its new book, The Book of Eggs. The result being a grand collection and extensive showcase of 600 species of birds, most of which come from the museum's vast collection. They house over 23,000 sets of eggs from over 1,600 species.

We find out more when John Bates, associate curator for the division of birds and book editor, joins us to discuss a life-size guide to eggs.
