-1- a e [] CAPE GAZETTE - Tuesday, April 15 - Thursday, April 17, 2008 - 43 WILD DELAWARE KEVIN FLEMING Scrambled eggs I spent a day photographing bird eggs at the Delaware Museum of Natural History near Wilmington. The museum is internationally famous for its collections of bird eggs, sea shells and bird skins. So, do you think you know your bird eggs? How many can you identify in this photograph? For the answer please see www.WildDelaware.corn but for now here's a clue. These are all Delaware birds very common to the Cape Region. Each box contains a clutch of eggs from just one nest and each box has eggs from a different species. Every Tuesday, the Cape Gazette will feature one of Kevin Fleming's new wildlife photographs taken for his book "Wild Delaware," which will be published in November. -To see his photo- graphs on a daily basis, visit his website www.WildDelaware.com.
