Description The Granite Monthly, Vol. 23 de Unknown Author:

Excerpt from The Granite Monthly, Vol. 23: A New Hampshire Magazine, Devoted to History, Biography, Literature, and State Progress Of the numerous species taken in Central New Hampshire, only brief mention can be made in a limited article, but to one on the lookout for different birds, an idea will be given of what kinds may be seen, and books may be consulted for full descriptions. The charms of bird study, however, come from personal observation, for, as Mrs. Miller has said, "The bird lover who carries a glass, but never a gun, who observes, but never shoots, sees many queer things not set down in books- freaks and notions and curious fancies on the part of the feathered folk, which reveal an individuality of character as marked in a three-inch warbler as in a six-foot man." Our most diminutive feathered inhabitant is the ruby-throated humming-bird, who is not much more than a "pinch of feathers," but whose every feather is a gem in itself. The male alone wears the brilliant gorget which sparkles and flashes in the sunlight as if thickly set with rubies, and well he may be proud of such a family heirloom. I associate these hummers with sweet - peas, whose blossoms are always. ..". on tiptoe for a flight-With wings of gentle flush o'er delicate white, And taper fingers catching at all things, To bind them all about with tiny rings," for a little couple used to sip their nectar at my front door. Not much larger are the kinglets - the ruby-crowned and golden-crested. Each male wears a few red feathers in his cap, but the ruby-crowned partly conceals his by more sober shades, while the golden-crested sets his off with a band of rich yellow, which in its turn is bordered with black with a whitish frill outside all, - rather gorgeous for his sex, do you not think? The various streaks and spots of the brown-attired sparrow family are puzzling as discriminating marks. The chipping sparrow, with her bright chestnut cap, is most familiar about our door-steps.
