Excerpt from Bertha's Visit to Her Uncle in England, Vol. 1 of 3

Just as I had written so far, Captain M. In vited us to go on deck to look at some birds that were hovering about the vessel. One of them was a phaeton, or tropic-bird, of which there are many varieties - that which I have seen to-day had a red bill, and very long white wings, tipped with black; the legs and feet bright red: the tail consists of only two straight feathers, al most 'two feet long, which they drop every year.
