Strange Bird in England
Natural History, Ornithology, Politics, Animal Behaviour
Descriptions of some alleged new birds that turn out to be political types. These include the 'Colymbus Arcticus', a 'disagreeable bird' whose 'blackness of the throat is attributed by political naturalists to a sort of black slimy matter generated in the bird itself, and discharged from the mouth'.
