    Based on the book, Birds, nests, and eggs, written by Mel Boring, originally published in the United States in by NorthWord Press, Inc., Minocqua, Wisconsin. Description: 40 pages: color illustrations ; 23 cm: Series Title: Young naturalist field guides. Responsibility: by Mel Boring ; . British birds’ eggs are found in a variety of shapes, sizes and colours. Although the default colour of a bird’s egg is white due to the calcium carbonate from which the shell is made, other pigments can cause eggs to take on different colours and patterns. Passerines tend to lay coloured eggs: birds that build their nests in trees are more.
