“If, at intervals, be heard the wild scream of the couguar, or the distant howling of wolves, these scarcely interrupt the music falling endlessly upon the ear -- the red cardinals, the orioles, the warbling _fringillidae_, and the polyglot thrushes -- who meet here, as if by agreement, to make this lovely sylvan spot the scene of their forest concerts.”
