Content: Written on border: "March 29, 1834" Printed on border: "Some of these structures are solitary, others are thickly clustered together; of the latter kind the most remarkable is that of the African pensile grosbeak, (Loxia pensilis), of which five or six hundred nests have been seen hanging upon one tree. The grosbeak's nest is a sort of basket of straw and reeds, in the shape of a bag, with the entrance below. It is fastened to the twig of a tree, and, generally, overhangs a stream." Includes additional text.
