Description

“Our Native Songsters” is a classic guide to bird watching by Anne Pratt. This wonderfully-illustrated volume contains information, instructions and tips that will be of use to the keen bird watcher, including where and when to find certain birds, notes on their natural history, and much more. Anne Pratt (1806 – 1893) was a ornithological and botanical illustrator from Strood, Kent. She was one of the best known English botanical illustrators of the Victorian age, having missed out on ‘outdoor activities’ due to poor health and instead encouraged to occupy herself with drawing. Other notable works by this author include: “The Field, the Garden, and the Woodland” (1838), “Flowers and their Associations” (1840), and “The Pictorial Catechism of Botany” (1842). Contents include: “Music of Nature”, “Common Thrush”, “Solitary Thrush”, “Winter Woods”, “Missel Thrush”, “Blackbird”, “Usefulness of Blackbird”, “Ring Ouzel”, “Dipper”, “Pastor Ouzel”, “Fieldfare”, “Redwing”, “Birds Practising their Songs”, “Golden Oriole”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now complete with a specially-commissioned new introduction on bird watching.
