William Henry Hudson: Birds in Town and Village (Unabridged)

Introduction

Chapter 1: Birds in Town and Village

Chapter 2

On my second day at the village it happened to be raining…

Chapter 3

All these corvine birds, which the gamekeeper pursues…

One of the first birds I went out to seek…

Chapter 4

The unsullied beauty and solitariness of this spot…

The tree-pipit has a comparatively short song…

Chapter 5

But where, during the days when the vociferous cuckoo…

At length during this period there occurred an event…

Later on I saw it again on half-a-dozen occasions…

Chapter 6

All those birds that had finished rearing their young…

Chapter 7

To return to my experience on the common.

As all or most singing birds learn their songs…

The most curious example of mimicry I have yet met with…

Chapter 8

What I have just said, that the peculiar instinct…

I will conclude this digression and dissertation…

Chapter 9

My colloquy with my enemy on the common…

It is true that the local authorities in some country towns…

How falsely does that man see Nature…

It is the same in death from cold.

Chapter 10

Chapter 11

One morning in July I was in my sitting-room…

Exotic Birds for Britain

That these large kinds thrive so well with us…

There is another point which should not be overlooked.

When considering the character of our bird population…

There is one objection some may make to the scheme…

Moorhens in Hyde Park

Such a fact as this – and numberless facts just as significant…

Kew is exceptionally favoured for the reason mentioned…

The Eagle and the Canary

As I sit writing these thoughts…

After all, then, what a little I have been able to do!

Chanticleer

It was very dark and quiet when I woke…

By and by I found myself paying special attention…

To return to the ten cockerels…

In An Old Garden

That sad day of very small things for the sportsman…

Greater than all these inhabitants of the garden…

To return to the birds.

That small song has served to remind me…

Birds in a Cornish Village I. Taking Stock of the Birds

At the beginning of December…

II: Do Starlings Pair for Life?

Until one observes starlings in this close way…

III: Village Birds in Winter

But for the poor starling there is little joy…

IV: Increasing Birds in Britain

The wood-pigeon is another species…

V: The Daw Sentiment

It has thus come about that of all the Corvidae…

VI: The Story of a Jackdaw
