Excerpt from The Dovecote and the Aviary: Being Sketches of the Natural History of Pigeons and Other Domestic Birds in a Captive State; With Hints for Their Management
Three of these Essays first appeared in bell'sweekly Messenger, whence they were immediately transferred to the Morning Herald, and perhaps to other prints; the rest is offered to the reader's consideration for the first time. The necessity of being brief will excuse the author for here acknowledging, in general terms only, the kind assistance which has been afforded him by very many friends and correspondents.
