THE WOOD-PIGEON (NMN 20)

by R.K. Murton

Published by Collins. 1st. 1965

Slightly better than very good condition in a very good dustwrapper. A 'New Naturalist' Monograph No. 20. Green buckram cloth. 39 b/w photographs. 22 text figures. Coloured plate frontispiece. A fascinating study of the wood-pigeon, the least studied of British birds. Dr. Murton reveals the particularly long life span of the wood-pigeon, 14 years, and also reveals that wood-pigeons are unique among bird life in that they lactate, with their young being fed entirely on milk for the first few days of life.

Name in ink to front endpaper. Some page browning. Wrapper is price-cut with some foxing and browning; edge-creasing with a couple of small nicks.
