Shelf locator: PC BIRD-Pel
Content : Foxing and pink marks on image. Printed on border: "…they perceive a fish sufficiently near the surface, they dart down upon it with the swiftness of an arrow, seize it with unerring certainty, and story it up in their pouch. They then rise again, though not without great labor, and continue hovering and fishing, with their head on one side, as before. This work they continue, with great effort and industry, till their bag is full; and then they fly to land, to devour and digest, at leisure, the fruits of their industry." Includes additional text.
