Content : Printed on border: "Family Eurypygidae. The last of these aberrant crane-like birds is the so-called sun bittern (Eurypyga Helias), of South America, which is structurally characterized by having a notch on each side of the breastbone, a naked oil gland, and powder-down patches, but shows no bare tracts on the sides of the neck. It is unique among the group in having helpless young." Includes additional text.
