“The Cuckoo’s Egg in the Hedge-Sparrow’s nest – by Harrison Weir” is a full page book plate image, taken from the “Chatterbox Album of Animals”, published by W.W.Gardner, circa 1878. The short anecdote accompanying the illustration, reads as follows: “Here we have a cuckoo’s egg in a hedge-sparrow’s nest, and if you will look at the left-hand corner of the picture you will see through the branches of the tree, a bird flying away, whose long, broad tail, tells that it is a cuckoo – the mother cuckoo, who has just placed her large speckled egg among the small blue ones of the hedge-sparrow.”
