INTRODUCTORY.

Some of the chapters of this little book were written in 1888, on the shore of the Great South Bay, Long Island; others in the northern part of New York State, known to its residents as the “Black River Country,” a year or two later. Part of them have been published in The Atlantic Monthly, Harper’s Bazaar, The Independent and other papers.

The nomenclature in the Table of Contents is that adopted by the American Ornithological Society.
