Abstract

“I have only recently received the copy of NATURE for November 29, 1917, in which you printed Prof. Poulton's letter commenting on an observation, of mine on the subject of ‘fascination’ of birds by snakes. Prof. Poulton suggested that this Was a case of ‘mobbing,’ and has just sent me a proof of his second communication on this subject, giving instances of ‘mobbing’ noted by field naturalists.”
