The Birds' Calendar

ByH. E. Parkhurst

ORNITHOLOGY is well-nigh the humblest member in the fraternity of Natural Sciences. It has little or no recognition in school or col¬lege, and hitherto has excited comparatively little general interest. It is accounted a sur¬prising thing when a person is found who can speak intelligently in regard to a dozen of the very commonest species of birds. Yet not¬withstanding the slight hold this science seems to have upon the popular mind, we find that in every Natural History museum in the world the section that proves most generally attractive, and is most interestedly commented upon, is that containing the ornithological specimens.
