"There is no original investigation in the foregoing piece. It was written for its medical interest, which is admittedly slight. All the essential pointers are to be found in Mr. Druces remarkable paper, in Mr. Whites modern Bestiary, and in dictionaries and encyclopaedias. There is an account summarising nearly all the references in one article in Prof. DA. W. ThompsonsGlossary of Greek Birds, to which Prof. Stanford drew my attention when these notes were almost finished. Had I consulted that work first I would not have started a burst of reading for which I am ill-equipped. Every printed work mentioned has been consulted directly, and responsible translations of classical authors have been used." - abstract
