The Nature Book : A Popular Description by Pen and Camera of the Delights and Beauties of the Open Air (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Nature Book: A Popular Description by Pen and Camera of the Delights and Beauties of the Open Air So, too, may he stalk the guillemot; for to the winged poacher the relatively enormous egg is, if anything, a still greater prize. It is intensely interesting to watch these birds from so close a distance that one thinks to read their changing moods in the piercing black eye. NO greater contrast to the dainty lover-like kittiwake could well be imagined. Watch them as they sit in rows with white breast turned to the cliff so that their drab-coloured backs may render them less conspicuous to enemies from the sea, craning their snake-like necks this way and that, eyeing you now from one side now from the other, curious of their neighbours' affairs, anxious yet reluctant to go, and you will begin to recast your ideas on the possibilities of bird anatomy and perpetual motion.
