So I was very interested to receive a call recently from Nancy Jewell, a Travis Country resident, who offered me a book published in 1923. This book had been in the library of a birder friend of Nancy's husband. THE BIRDS OF BIRDVILLE contains a collection of hand painted bird images, only a few of which are from Birdsville, Pennsylvania, to which we believe it refers.
As bird books in 1923 were not common, this book is fascinating for its age and because it is in color. Here is a video of each page of this short book and the 48 bird images so that you may enjoy it also. Thank you Nancy.
