Notes

The author explains the co-ordinated and flocking behaviour of birds by his idea of thought transference. The greater part of the book consists of diary entries of his observations from 1900-29. Edmund Selous (1857-1934) was an ornithological writer, specialising in the area of bird behaviour. He was a pioneer of non-destructive bird study, with collecting being replaced by observation and recording.
