January 26, 2024

Eggshell thickness was measured at the egg equator and sharp pole for 5 songbird species. Each egg has thickness measurements at two locations on the egg and the corresponding egg length, egg width, egg volume, relative incubation age, egg identification, and nest identification.

These data support the following publication:
Schacter, C.R., Peterson, S.H., Hartman, C.A., Herzog, M.P., and Ackerman, J.T., 2024. Eggshell thickness and egg morphometrics in five songbird species from the Central Valley, California. Journal of Field Ornithology, 95(1), p.3.
