THE HUMMING BIRD

the deepest shades of the forest-are all visited in their turn; and everywhere the little bird meets with pleasure and with food. Its gorgeous throat in beauty and brilliancy baffles all competition. Now it glows with a fiery hue, and again, it is changed to the deepest velvety black. The upper parts of its delicate body are of resplendent, changing green. It moves from one flower to another like a, gleam of light-upward, downward, to the right, and to the left. In this manner it searches the extreme northern portions of our country, following with great precaution the advances of the season; and retreats with equal care at the approach of autumn.

NOTES AND QUESTIONS
Biography
. John James Audubon (1780-1851) was born in New Orleans. His mother died when he was very young, and his father, who was a Frenchman, took the boy to France. There Attdubon grew up and was educated. He studied drawing with some of the celebrated French artists. In 1798 he returned to America, and from that time on, he spent most of his time in this country. He devoted himself to the study of natural history and especially to birds. His great work, The Birds of America, contains life-size pictures of more than a thousand birds. The drawings for these he made himself, and they are artistically excellent as well as true to nature. Because of his interest in birds, the clubs for the care and study of birds, which have been formed throughout the United States, are called Audubon Societies.
