Four dnys later when the newt was examined it was found (lint the little male bird, working, nlone for the fnmlly, had brought home forty-eight blrdH— viz, six larks, nine swallows, one bullfinch, seven robins, six sparrows, sis hedge sparrows, .nine bluo tits, three chaillnchcs and one wren. What u spirit of dutlfulnoss along with ferocity IH hero ox hi hi tod on (he part of the small widower hawk, who evidently thought Hint the host wn.v of respecting the memory of ..In departed consort was to feed her children well!
