In the Atlantic Monthly for May is
an article entitled "With the Birds,"
from which we make the following
In that free, fascinating, half-work
and half-play pursuit—sugar-making,
a pursuit which still lingers in many
parts of New York, as in New Eng
land, the Robin is one's boon compan
ion. When the day is sunny and the
ground bare, you may meet him at all
points and hear him at all hours. At
sunset, on the tops of the tall maples,
with look heavenward, and in a spir
it of utter abandonment, he carols
Lis simple-strain. And sitting thus
amid the stark, silent trees, above the
wet, cold earth, with the chill, of win

sweeter songster "in the whole round
year. It is in keeping with the scene
and the occasion. How round and
genuine the notes are, and how eager
ly our ears drink them in 1 The first
utterance, and the spell of winter is
thoroughly broken and the remem
brance of it afar off.
Robin is one of the most native and
democratic of our birds; he is one of
the family, and seems much nearer to
1123 than those rare, exotic visitants, as
the Orchard Starling or Rose-Breasted
Grosbeak, with their distant, high
bread ways. Hardy, noisy, frolicsome,
neighborly and domestic in his ways,
strong of wing and bold in spirit, he is
the pioneer of the Thrush family, and
well worthy of the finer artists whose
coming be heralds and in a measure
prepares for us.
I could wish Robin less native and
plebeian in one respect—the building
of his nest. Its coarse material and
rough masonry are creditable neither
to his skill as a workman nor to his
taste as an artist. lam the more for
cibly reminded of his deficency in this
respect from observing yonder Hum
ming-Bird's nest, which is a marvel bf
fitness and adaption, a proper set
ting for_this winged gem, the body of
it composed of a white felt-like sub
stance, probably the doWn of some
plant, or the wool of some worm, and
toned down in keeping with the
branch on . which it sits by minute
treelinchens, woven" together by
threads as fine and frail as gossamer.
Another April bird, which makes '
her appearance sometimes earlier and
and sometimes later than Robin, and
whose memory I fondly cherish, is the
Phcebe-Bird (aluscicapa nunciola), the
pioneer of the Flycatchers. In the

ble intervalkin her lay she describes a
circle or ari ellipse in the air, ostensi
bly prospecting for insects, but really,
I stispect, as an artistic flourish, thrown
in to make up in some way for . the
deficiency of her musical performance.
If plainness of dress indicates powers
of song, as it usually does, then Phm
be ought to bo unrivaled in musical
ability, for surely that ashen gray
suit is the superlative of plainness;
and that form, likewise, though it
might pass for the "perfect figure" of
a bird, measured by Yoe Gargery's
standard, to a fastidious taste would
present exceptionable points. The
seasonableness of her coming, howev
er, and her civil, neighborly ways,
shall make up for all deficencies in
song and plumage, and remove any
suspicions we have bad, that, perhaps,
from some cause or other, she was
in some slight disfavor with Nature.
After a few weeks Phoebe is seldom
seen, except as she darts from her
moss-covered nest beneath some
bridge, or shelving cliff.
May is the month of the Swallow
and the Orioles. There are many
other distinguished arrivals; indeed,
nine—tenths of the birds are hero by
the last week in May, yet the 'Swal
lows and Orioles are the most con
spicuous. Tho bright plumage of the
latter seems really like au arrival
from the tropics. I see them flash
through the blossoming trees, and all
the forenoon hear their incessant war
bling and wooing. The Swallows
dive and chatter about tho barn, or
squeak and build beneath the eaves;
the Partridge drums in the fresh nn•
folding woods; the long, tender note
of the Meadow Lark comes up from
the meadow; and at sunset, from every
marsh and pond come the ten thous

transition month, and exists to con

With Juno the cup is full, our hearts
are satisfied, there is no more to' be
desired. The perfection of the season,
among other things, has brought the
perfection of the song and plumage of
the birds. The master artists are all
here; and the expectations excited by
the Robin and Song Sparrow are ful
ly justified. The Thrushes have all
come; and I sit down upon the first
rock with hands full of the pink Aza
lea, to listen. With me, the Cuckoo
does not arrive till June, and often
the Goldfinch, theliinghird,the Scarlet
Tanager delay their coming till then.
In the meadows the Bobolink is in all
his glory;in high pastures the Field-
Sparrow sings his breezy vesper hymn;
and the whole woods are unfolding to
the music of the Thrushes.
is one of the most solitary birds of
our forests, and is strangely tame and
quiet, appearing equally untouched
by joy or grief, fear or anger. Is lie
an exile from some other sphere,
and are his loneliness and indifference
the result of a hopeless, yet resigned
soul? Or, has he passed through some
terrible calamity, or bereavement, that
has overpowered his sensibilities, yen •
dering him dreamy and semi-conscious?
Something remote seems over weigh
ing on his mind. He deposits his eggs
in the nests of other birds, having no
heart for work or domestic care. His
not or call is as of one lost or wander
ing, and the farmer says is prophetic
of - rain, Amid the general joy and
the sweet assurance of things, I loved
to listen to this strange clairvoyant
call. Heard a quarter of a mile
away, coming up from the dark bosom,
of the forest or out from the somber
recesses, of the mountain, like the
voice of a muezzon calling to prayer
in the Oriental twilight, it has a pe
culiar fascination. Ile wanders. from
place to place,
"'An invisible thing, .
A voice, a mystery."
Yon will probably hear him a score,
of times to seeing him once. I rarely
discover him in. the woods, except
when on a protracted stay; but when
in JUDO he makes his gastronomic
tour of the garden and orchard, regal
ing himself upon canker-worms, he is
quite noticeable. Since food of some
kind is a necessity, he seems resolved
to burden himself us little as possible
with the care of obtaining it, and ea
devours these creeping horrors with
the utmost matter-of-course air. At
this xlipe ho is ono of the tamest birds
in the orchard, and will allow you, to
approach within a few yards of . him , .
I have even come within a few foot of

or suspicion. He is quite unsophisti

the qualities both of firmness and fine
ness. Notwithstanding the despar
ity in size and color•, ho has certain
peculiarities that remind one of the
Passenger Pigeon. His eye,- with its
rod circle, the shape of his head, and
his motions on alighting and taking
flight, quickly suggest the resem
blance; though in grace • and
speed, when on the wing, he is far
inferior. Ilia tail seems dispropor
tionately long, like that of the Red
Thrush, and his flight among the trees
is very still, contrasting strongly with
the honest clatter of the Robin or
The distribution of plants in a given
locality is not more marked and do
fined than that of the birds. Show a
botanist a land, he will tell you where
to look for the Lady's-Slipper, the
Columbine, or the Harebell. On the
same principles the ornit holigist will
direct you where to look for tho Hood
ed Warbler, the Wood'Sparrow or the
Chewink. In adjourning counties in
the same latitude, and equally
but possessing a different geological
formation and different forest timber,
you will oblerve quite a different for
est timber, you will observe quite a
different class of birds. In a country
of the beech and maple I do not find
tho same songsters that I know
where thrive the oak, chestnut and
laurel. In going from a district of
the Old Red Sandstone to where I
walk upon the old Plutonic Rock, not
fifty miles distant, I miss in'the woods
the Vocry, the Hermit-Thrush, the
chestnut Sided Warbler, the Blue-
Backed Warbler, the Green Backed
Warbler, the Black and Yellow Warb
ler, and many others—and find in
their , stead the Wood-Thrush, the
Chewink, the Redstart, the Yellow-
Breasted Flycatcher, the White-Eyed
Flycatcher, the Quail and the Turtle-
But the crowning glory of all these
Robins, Flycatchers and Warblers is
the Wood-Thrush. More abundant
than all other birds, except the Robin
and Cat bird, he greets you from ev
ery rock and shrubs Shy and resery
ed when he first makes his appearance
in May, before the end of June he is
tame and familiar, and sings on the
tree over your head, or on the rock a
few paces in advance. A pair even
built their nest and reared their brood
within ten or twelve feet of the piazza
of a large summer house in the vicini
ty. But when the gueits commenced
to arrive and the piazza to be throng
ed with gay crowds, I noticed some
thing like dread, and foreboding in the
manner of the motherbird; and froM
her still, quiet ways and habit of sit
tin; long and silently within a few
feet of the precious charge, it seemed
as if the dear creature had resolved, if
possible, to avoid all observation.
He is the only songster of rffy ac•
quaintance, excepting the canary, that
displays different degrees of proficien
cy in the exercise of his musical gifts.
Not long since, while walking one
Sunday in the edge of an orchard ad
joining a wood, I heard one that so
obviously and unmistakingly surpass.

though slow to notice such things, re

accord we threw ourselves upon the
grass and drank in the bounteous mel

so Much as in quantity. • Such a flood
of it! Such magnifieent copiousness !
Such long, trilling, deferring, accelera•
ting preludes! Such sudden, ecstatic
overtures would have intoxicated the
dullest car.. Ho was really without a
compeer, a master artist. Twice after
ward I was conscious of having heard
the same bird.
The wood-thrush is the handsomest
species of Able family. In grace and
elegance of manner he has no equal.
Such a gentle, bird-bred air, and such
inimitable ease and composure in his
flight and movement ! He is &poet in
very word and deed. His carriage is
music to the eye. His performanee of
the commonest act, as catching a, beetle
orpicking a worm from the mud,pleases
like a stroke of wit or eloquence. Was
he a prince in the olden time, and do
the regal grace and mien still adhere
to him in histransformatisn ? What

ped spotel It may be objected to Robin
that ho is noisy and demonstrative; he
hurries away or rises to a branch with
an angry note, and flirts his wings in
ill-bred suspicion. Tho Mavis, or Rod
Thrush, sneaks aucf *Mks lilso a mil-,
prit hiding in the highost alderp; the
Cat -bird is a coquette and a flirt
well as a sort of female Paul l?ry; and
the Chewink shows his inhospitality
by espying your movements like a
Japanese. The Wood-thrush haehene
of these underbred traits. He regards
me unsuspiciously, or avoids me .with
a noble reserve— : or, if I am quiet and
incurious, graciously hops - toward me,
as if to pay his respects, or to make
my, acquaintance. Pass nearhis nest,

What a noble pride he has ! lute
one October, after his mates and com
panions bad long since gone South, I
noticed one for several successive days
in the denso part of this nextdoor
wood, flitting noiseleSsly about, very
grave and silent, as if doing penance
for some violation of the code of honor.
By many gentle, indirect approaches,
I perceived that part of his tail-feath
ors wero undeveloped. The sylvan
prince ceuld not think of returning to
court in this plight—and so amid the
falling leaves and cold rains of Aut
umn, was patiently biding his time.
The Cat bird
I hardly know whether I am more
pleased or annoyed with the Cat Bird.
Perhaps she: is a little too common,
and her part in the general chorus a
little too cmspicuous. •If you are
toning for the note of another bird,
sho is sure to be prompted to the most
loud and protracted singing, drown
ing all other sounds; if you sit quietly
down to observe a favorite or study a
new comer, her curiosity knows no
bounds, and you are scanned and rid
iculed from every point of . observation.
Yet I would not miss her; I would
only subordinate her a little; make her
She is the parodist of the woods, and
there is ever.:B'misellievous, bantering,
halfironieal undertone in her lay, as if
she were conscious of mimicking and
disconcerting somo envied songster.
Ambitious of song, .practising and re
hearsing in private, she yet seems the
least sincere and genuine of the sylvan
minstrels, as if she had taken iv music
only to be in the fashion, or not to be
outdone by the Robins and Thrushes.
In other words, shoseems to sing from
some outward motive, and not from In
ward joyousness. • She is a good versi
fier, but not a great piiet. Vigorous,
rapid, copious, and without fine totich
es, but destitute of any high, serene
melody, her performance, like that of
Thoreau's squirrel, always implies a
Till the middle of" July there is a
general equilibrium ; the tido stands
poised,-the holiday spirit is unabated.
But us tho harvest ripens beneath the
long, hot days, the melody ceases. The
young are out of the nest and must be
cared for, and moulting season, is at
hand. After the. Cricket has commen
ced to drone his mobotonous refrain
beneath your window, you will not,
till another season, hear the Wood-
Thrush in all his matchless eloquence.
Tho Bobolink has become careworn
and fretful, and blurts out snatches of
his song between. his scolding and up
braiding, as you approach the vicinity
of his nest, oscillating between anxiety .
for his brood and solicitude for his mu
sicalreputation. Some of the Spar
rows will sing, and occasionally across
the hot fields,' from a tall tree in the
edge of the forest, comes the rich note
of the Scarlet Tanager. This tropical
colored bird loves thohottest weather,
and I hear him-more in dog days than
at any other time.
The remainder of the . Summer is the
carnival of the Swallows and Fly catch
era. Flics and insects, to any amount
are to be bad for the catching; and the
opportunity is well improved.
August is the month of the high
sailing Hawks. The Hen Hawk is the
most noticeable. He likes the haze
and calm of these long, warm days.
He is a bird of leisure, and seems al
ways at his - case. How beautiful and
majestic are his movements! so self.
poised and easy, such an entire ab
sence of haste, such a magnificent am
plitude of circles and spirals, such a
haughty, imperial grace, and occasion
ally such daring aerial evolutions!
With slow, leisurely niovement,rare
ly vibrating his pinions, ho mounts
and mounts in nq ascending spiral till
he appears a more speck against the
Summer sky; then, if the mood seizes
him, with wings half closed, like a tlnt,
boar, he will cleave the air almost per
pendicularly, as if intent Cu dashing
himself to pieces against the earth; but
on nearing the ground, he suddenly
mounts again on broad, expanded
wing, as if rebounding upon the air,
and s;tils leisurely away. It is the
sublimeit feat of tho season. One.holds
hie breath till ho sees hirn rise again.
Sometimes a squirrel, or bird, or an
unsuspecting barn lowl is scathed and

io in his speed and boldness. You see
his path down the heavens, straightas
a lino; if near, you hear the rush of his
wings; his shadoW hurtles across the
fields, and in an instant you see him
quietly perched upon some low tree or
decayed stub in a swamp or meadow,
with reminiscence of frogs and mice
stirring in his maw.
When the South wind blow's, it is a
study to see three or four of those air
kings at the head of the. valley .far up
toward the mountain, balancing and
oscillating upon tho strong current;
now quite stationary, except a slight
tremulous motion like the poise of a
rope-dancer, then rising and fallen in
long undulations; and seeming to re
sign themselves passively to the wind;
or, sailing high and level far 'above the
mountain's peak—no bluster and
haste, but, as .stated, occasionally a
terrible earnestness and speed. Fire
at him as ho sails overhead, and, on•
less wounded badly, ho will not change
his course or gait.
Ibis flight is a perfect picture of ro
pes() in motion. He ►night sleep or
dream in that leVel, effortless, aimless
sail. It strikes the eye as more
prising than the flight of the Pigeon
and Swallow even, in that the effort
put forth is so uniform and dolicato as
to escapo observation, giving to the
movement an air ot buoyancy andper
petuity,-tho effluence of power,rather
than the conscious application of it.
But Summer wanes, and Autumn
approaches. The songsters of the seed
times are silent at the reaping of the
harvest. Other minstrels take up the
strain. It is the heyday of'insect life.
The day is canopied with musical
All the songs of the Spring and Sum
mer appear to be floating, softened and
refined, in the upper air. The birds,
in a new, but less holiday suit, turn
their faces southward. The Swallows
flock and go; the Bobolinks flock and
go; silently and unobserved,the Thrush
es go. Autumn arrives,bringing Finch
es, Warblers, Sparrows and Kinglets
from the north. Silently the proces- -
sion passes. Yonder Hawk, soiling
peacefully away till he is lost in the
horizon is a symbol of the closing ;ma
son and the departing birds!
