The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 73

Harpa novæ-zealandiæ. (Quail-hawk.)

Harpa novæ-zealandiæ. (Quail-hawk.)

The egg of this species is a very pretty object. I have now four specimens before me. They are of uniform size, and broadly ovoido-conical, measuring 2in. by 1.4in. Pale-brown, richly splashed and spotted over the entire surface with reddish-brown, especially at the larger end, where there is a mixture of blackish-brown with the brighter colour.
