Birds of Eastern North America.

By CHESTER A. REED, B. S.

THE bird book of the year. It is authentic. The author KNOWS birds. He has studied them for thirty years - in the hand, for plumage, and in their haunts, for habits. He has studied them in their homes and has photographed hundreds as they were actually feeding their young. Besides being able to write about these things in an interesting and instructive manner, he is classed as one of the foremost bird artists in America. This rare combination of Artist-Author-Naturalist has produced, in "Birds of Eastern North America," the ultimate bird book.

The technical descriptions aided by the pictures give perfect ideas of the plumage of adults and young.

The descriptive text gives the important and characteristic features in the lives of the various species.

The illustrations - well, there are 408 PICTURES IN NATURAL COLORS; they show practically every species, including male, female, and young when the plumages differ, and they are perfectly made by the best process.

Bound in cloth, handsomely illuminated in gold; 464 pages (4 1/2 x 6 1/2); 408 colored illustrations; every bird described and pictured.

Nature Studies - In Field and Wood

By CHESTER A. REED, B. S.

This book is destined to be one of the most important that the author ha written. Absorbingly interesting in itself, yet its greatest value will lie i the fact that it will lead the reader to realize how blind he has been to the many wonderful things that are happening on every hand.

The brook, the pond, the field, the woods, the swamps and even the bac yards yield quantities of very interesting subjects for study. This book treats entertainingly of many of these interesting creatures, but its chief aim is to be an "awakener"- to arouse within the reader the desire to go out and verify some of the facts given, or to do some original investigation himself. Such studies develop the senses of perception and observation immensely, and the one who is "alive" to what is going on about him surely is better able to cope with all situations in life than one who sees nothing until it is forcibly brough' to his attention.

112 pages; size - 5 1/2 x 7 1/2 in. 40 illustrations in color, and black and white.

Camera Studies of Wild Birds in Their Homes

Camera Studies of Wild Birds in Their Homes.

By CHESTER A. REED, B. S.

"CAMERA STUDIES" affords everyone an opportunity for a very intimate study of bird life. A good photograph of an event together with an interesting description of it is the next best thing to witnessing the event itself.

"CAMERA STUDIES" has 250 photographs of events right in birds' home. These pictures are selected from the author's collection of over 2000 bird photographs, this being one of the best collections of pictures of free, living wild birds in existence.

Many rare and interesting poses are faithfully shown by the camera. For instance, a pair of adult Chipping Sparrows, standing on a branch by the sides of their four young, are engaged in pulling apart a large worm that was too large to be given whole.

The stories accompanying these pictures are as interesting as the photographs and above all they are all actual facts.

300 pages, 5 1/2 x 7 1/2 in.; 250 photographs of living, wild birds.

Handsomely bound in Cloth, $2.00 net; postage 20c.

FIELD GLASSES FOR BIRD STUDY

FIELD GLASSES FOR BIRD STUDY.

We carefully examined more than a hundred makes of field glasses, to select the ones best adapted for bird study.

We found one make that was superior to any other of the same price and equal optically, and nearly as well made as those costing three times as much.

They magnify about three diameters, and have an unusually large field of vision or angle of view, making it easy to find a bird or keep him in sight. Price only $5.00 postpaid.
