The chapters contained herein include: 'The Skeleton', 'The Sternum or Breastbone', 'The Bones of the Wings', 'Muscles', 'The Feathered Wing', 'Tails', 'Flight', 'Different Shapes of Wing', 'Rising', 'Landing', 'Gliding', 'Hovering Flight', 'Birds of Prey', 'The Owls', 'Ducks', 'Waders', 'Migration and Wing Formation', 'Snipe', 'Crows', and 'Pelicans'. This text was originally published in 1947 and is proudly republished now complete with a new introduction on ornithology.
