We don't know what kind of birds these eggs came from.

sea urchin
We saw lots of sea urchins while snorkeling.
 
urchin shell
We also found an intact shell.
 
There were lots of scallop shells and starfish skeletons washed up on shore.
On many of the beaches, there were hundreds of shells within a 2 meter radius.
My favorite finds were a brittle starfish and an intact sea urchin shell.

This was taken at a whale exhibit at the Te Papa in Wellington.
According to the exhibit notes, this is a sperm whale skeleton.
