Memoirs of the Boston Society of Natural History, Volume 9, Number 3. A serious study; "This book discusses courtship and nesting of these winged jewels, their flight, flower choice, and other subjects, with such intimate comprehension that in the end the reader feels almost able to follow the workings of a hummingbird's mind. Though this book cannot be recommended as light, popular reading, it should not fail to reach the hands of the many persons to whom it would bring great interest and enjoyment"
