The Minstrelsy of the Wood - Sketches and Songs Connected with the Natural History of Some of the Most Interesting British and Foreign Birds

S. Waring

First published in 1832, "The Minstrelsy of the Wood" is fantastic guide for birdwatchers written by S. Waring. It contains detailed descriptions of the birds treated, giving information on their habits and habitats, natural history, and much more besides. This vintage book is highly recommended for avid birdwatchers and others with an interest in birds and ornithology in general. Contents include: "The Eagle", "The Falcon", "The Tawny Owl", "The Virginian Owl", "Passeres", "The Bell-bird", "The Thrush", "The Mocking Thrush", "The Oriole, or Golden Thrush", "The Robin Redbreast", "The Nightingale", "The Black-cap", "The Golden-crested Wren", "The Willow-wren", etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in a modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new introduction on the history of bird watching.
