Description

Excerpt from Animal Life and the World of Nature, Vol. 1: A Magazine of Natural History; July, 1902-June, 1903 Hearing of its arrival I hastened to obtain a picture, having had a hint that they never live long here. True enough the poor bird in a very few days became almost unrecognisable as the beautiful bird shown. The Osprey used formerly to breed in' the British Isles, chiefly in Scotland, by the shores of wooded moun tain lakes, where it fishes by descending from great heights above the water and precipitating itself, and seizing with its claws the fish it has observed on the surface. This'mode of living. Has given it the name of the Fishing Hawk. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
