They are from the brush of the artist- Photograph from Francis H. Herrick A STERN-VISAGED MONARCH OF THE AIR THE AMERICAN OR BALD EAGLE naturalist, Louis Agassiz Fuertes. The descriptive text by Henry W. Henshaw, formerly Chief of the U. S. Biological Survey, sets forth the distinguishing char acteristics of each species of bird, its peculiar habits, and its favorite habitat. Few wonders are as compelling in in terest as is the display of that mysterious impulse which season after season causes birds to migrate from their winter homes . . . and then to make the return journey in the fall, guided no one knows how. The late Wells W. Cooke gives an account of these migrations, . . . supplemented with maps and charts. Frederick H. Kennard's article tells how every reader, be he proprietor of a great estate or the owner of a window sill, can make the acquaintance and win the confidence of birds. George Shiras, 3rd, the inventor of wild-life flashlight photography and of methods of making animals and birds take their own portraits, gives some useful hints on the latter subject. Dr. Edward W. Nelson, of the U. S. Biological Survey, an internationally known authority, tells of tracing the life story of wild birds by the unique method of tagging them. *252 pages (so x 7 in.), Molloy-made binding, $4 post paid in U.
