WILD WINGS by Frank S. Stuart


Email this review


The poetry and drama and story interest of the migration of wild ducks, round the year. The story starts with the luring of wild ducks into nets for banding, and ends with the return of some of the banded ducks to their starting place. Frank Stuart has told the story of the months between, basing his reconstruction on the known facts of direction, the hardships attendant on the flight, storm over sea and land, ice and snow, dangers from four footed peril and marauding birds; the mating, nesting and raising of the young, the return to the south. Enchanting nature reading.
