Examples

  • It is curious to observe with what different degrees of architectonic skill Providence has endowed birds of the same genus, and so nearly correspondent in their general mode of life; for while the swallow and the house-martin discover the greatest address in raising and securely fixing crusts or shells of loam as cunabula for their young, the bank - martin terebrates a round and regular hole in the sand or earth, which is serpentine, horizontal, and about two feet deep.
