Comments On Rare Birds

  1. Uneven mix of ornithology, bird lore, folklore, conservation, and history At times the description of a species s life cycle is very scientific, but just as often a chapter is ruined by anthropomorphic depictions of mating behavior Many very beautiful illustrations, historic and contemporary, liven the text, including several by the author who is a much better artist than writer I did learn that Edward Lear The Owl and the Pussycat was a prominent bird illustrator, active around the time that Jo [...]


  2. The artwork is beautiful, but the writing is a little off I didn t quite understand the selections some chapters are concerned with definite rare species, but others seem less probable, at least on my side of the pond And the essays themselves are not that engaging And finally, a fine essay by the naturalist Buffon is pasted, almost inexplicably, following the afterward Overall, this one is an odd addition to the natural history library.

  4. interesting facts and stories of rare birds Beautiful old paintings of said birds Some of the writings seem quite funny and odd, I don t know if it is the translations from German or the changes in the biological studies of birds.
