Birds in the Aretic.
In the countries bordering on the
Molar seas, where the changing sea
sons bring alternately the two ex
tremes of dearth and plenty, birds
are more numerous in the short sum
mer than anywhere else all the world
aver and in winter are absent alto
gether. All are immigrants there by
orce of circumstances. In like man-1
ner the birds of temerate climtates
are affected by the seasonal changes,
though in a less degree, through the
infuence of cold and heat up'on their
food supplies, rather than by effect of
old upon their well-protected bodies.
According to Littell's Living Age,
a coat of mail is not to be compared
to a coat of feathers for safety, so far
as a bird's life is concerned. Layer
pon layer of feathers can withstand
any amount of water or any degree(
f cold. In-proof of this see how the

the ice foes of the Polar Sea and lay

or three weeks the tender breast of
the sea swallow is pre sed against a

example of th i influence of food
rather than climate in governing bird
action, take the colony of beccafieos.

bird, common on the shores of Spain
