Among the illustrations is a portrait (colored from the life) of the Australian Lady Gould finch, which is said to "reach the highest point of beauty and elegance attained by any of the smaller cage birds of the world."

"Many readers will doubtless be surprised to learn that the annual importations ol cage birds Into this country include something like 200 species and more than 300,000 individual specimens. Equally surprising to many readers it will be to learn that the cage trade in native birds has come almost to an end, this being due, it is supposed, to the restrictive laws tor the protection of birds, which by the efforts of the Audubon societies have been enacted in 35 states, including all the states from which desirable birds could be procured. As to importations, bird-lovers may bewail the fact that so many birds arc imported to suffer lives of captivity, but their grief should be mitigated by the other fact that a large majority of the importations are canaries, domesticated for many generations and knowing only the captive life. The worst cruelty that could be shown such birds would be to give them liberty and compel them to shift for themselves."
