No ex-cuse serves to palliate the crime of the whole-sale murder of these graceful sea swallows, asthey are aptly termed, which used to make ourshores so attractive by their presence. Iut thetide seems to have turned, i)artly at least.

Thebalance of the food includes birds, reptiles,and spiders. Contrary to the usual habits ofthe species, some individuals during the breed-ing season capture nestlingNote About ImagesPlease note that these images are extracted from scanned page images that may have been digitally enhanced for readability - coloration and appearance of these illustrations may not perfectly resemble the original work.
