Oologist

Written By macky on Monday, July 16, 2012 | 7:30 AM

Oologist is the study of bird eggs. It also refers to a person that collects bird eggs as a hobby. And that my friends, is our breakout word for the day in animal theory.

Notable Oologist

Charles Bendire - a former US soldier who has the bird Bendire's Thrasher named in his honor.
Colin Watson - this British egg collector became famous for stealing rare and wild bird eggs for a span of 20 years before his eventual death. Good riddance?
Francis Charles Robert Jourdain - the founder of the British Oological Society now known as the Jourdain Society.

Best Egg Collections

The Henry Luke White collection in Melbourne Australia. This collection holds 4,800 groups of bird eggs representing 650 species of birds.





Have you ever thought of collecting bird eggs as a hobby before? I know I haven't.
