Rough Notes and Memoranda relating to the Natural History of the Bermudas

Article metrics


THAT a group of islands where the list of resident native land birds comprises only seven species, in addition to which four maritime kinds frequent the coasts in summer, should be visited by no less than one hundred and twenty-eight other species, chiefly migrants, is a wonderful fact in natural history, and one worthy of the best attention of those interested in solving the problem of bird migration. To record the dates of the arrival and departure of these various migratory species, appears to have been the task set himself by the late Mr. Hurdis; and the present volume (portions of which have already appeared in another work issued as far back as 1859) is the result of his labours.

Rough Notes and Memoranda relating to the Natural History of the Bermudas.

J. L. Hurdis. Edited by his daughter, H. J. Hurdis. 8vo, pp. viii + 408. (London: R. H. Porter, 1897.)
