A rare bunch of wild eggs belonged to a bird species I had never raised before. I decided to film her growth every day - on a neutral background so as to see her development in detail. This was an amazing journey from the wild egg rescue up until her release into the wild again.

04:55 Day to Day Growth Timelapse

*Kind reminder: Never, ever take eggs from a birds nest. Doing so would be a violation of nature and mostly cause a lot of sadness… and it’s against the law for a very good reason. The falconer (from the beginning of the video) is actually one of the only people licensed to do this, and only does in very unique circumstances.
If you do find an egg however somewhere out of place, you can try look for a nearby professional hatcher, or, if you happen to live in the Netherlands, you can now sent me the egg. Visit (website is in Dutch) for more info.
