Excerpt from Birds of the Hawaiian Islands: Being a Complete List of the Birds of the Hawaiian Possessions, With Notes on Their Habits

Of recent years the study of nature has become popular and widespread in America. Not only is Nature Study taught in many of the schools, but the publications relating thereto have become very numerous. Unfortunately these various treatises apply wholly or in large part to the birds, insects, animals and plants of the mainland, few or none of which are found in the Hawaiian Islands. Such publications are hence of comparatively little use to island teachers and pupils or to the Islanders generally.

There being at present no popular work upon Hawaiian birds, the present little volume has been prepared with the view of breaking ground in this department, and with the hope that it may prove of assistance to those who are already bird-lovers and, as well, may stimulate others to become such.

For superbly illustrated volumes upon Hawaiian birds the reader is referred to the fine works issued by Mr. Walter Rothschild and by Mr. Scott B. Wilson.

Since the first part of the present treatise was published, the Bishop Museum has issued a "Key to the Birds of the Hawaiian Group" by W. A. Bryan. This valuable work supplies a ready means for the identification of all the birds thus far found upon the islands, and should prove a welcome and efficient aid to a knowledge of the subject. Much of the preliminary field-work in relation to the island plants, insects, shells and fishes has already been done by private investigators or by public institutions, and the results have been published. (Note the extensive and valuable memoirs on various branches of biology issued conjointly by the Royal Society of London, British Association for the Advancement of Science and the Bishop Museum under title of "Fauna Hawaiiaensis").
