About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1916, this book was primarily intended to assist with scientific education in schools to provide a general overview of the types of birds most commonly found in Britain at that time. The book catalogues a plethora of different species and discusses each bird's physiological appearance, ancestry, behavioural patterns, locations, food, nest-building habits and identifiable sounds. The book also contains multiple illustrations and photographs of wild land and water birds. This is a highly informative and scientifically valuable book, which documents Britain's birds in the early twentieth century, and will be of value to anyone with an interest in the history of ornithology as well as climate and landscape change in Britain.
