Oology (egg) Collection History

John Hutchings received a permit from the United States Department of Agriculture Bureau of Biological Survey to do oological surveys. He and his family would collect eggs from various bird species in Utah from 1931 to 1941 and he recorded his observations including the date, species, location, number of eggs and other notes on little cards. These cards have been scanned and transcribed and are viewable and searchable below. These cards have information that gives insight into the species diversity in the area in the 1930’s and we can compare it to the species we have today.

Goldfinch egg cardGoldfinchGold Finch eggsGold Finch eggsSpinus tristisFound at Saratoga.7/4/19364Bird near nestNest constructed of grass and bark stripes compactly put together. Lined with horse hair. Plant down was also used in the construction. The nest was completely hid from view until the leaves were parted and then there it was in full view, containing 4 pale, blueish white eggs, unmarked.In the undergrowth of a box elder about 3 ft from the ground. Female near the nest. Very nervous. Would fly from tree to tree, then fly to small plants and grasses near the ground. Which bowed nearly to the earth with its weight. But still it would cling there and sway back and forth, chirping as it did, until it had to shift positions and then it would fly to another tree and then back near the nest.J.H.
