Usually the evaluation of eggs fertility is done with ovoscopy. The principal inconvenient is the need to manipulate the egg, this prevents its application in wildlife. This is why it was studied to substitute this method for termography, analizing the termic patterns of 190 eggs of Falco naumanni. The obtained results show that thermography allows us to differentiate the fertile eggs, from
unfertile, and aborted ones thanks to its different termic patters and cooling speeds since 3 days after the lay. Its possible to use it both during the artificial incubation and in nature with different environment conditions, being necessary to have in mind the place, the number of days that have passed since the lay as well as the temperature at the beginning
