The object of this pamphlet is to furnish a list of birds that may be seen in this vicinity if one goes afield to make the acquaintance of the feathered songsters, and to give the approximate time of their arrival.
It is not its object to be technical or classical or to give descriptions, for all have access to books that furnish abundant knowledge of birds. What I offer is a careful record of personal observations and experiences, hoping to stimulate a desire in others to learn something of ornithology from nature, for it can not be satisfactorily learned from books alone.
My natural ear is attuned to music, so many of my remarks will be on the songs of birds, for to me as to John Burroughs "What is a bird without its song? It seems to me that I do not know a bird till I have heard its voice."
