Some Common Game, Aquatic, and Rapacious Birds in Relation to Man

Description: "Careful study of the food habits of the game birds, including the group known as shore birds, shows that these birds are of great value to the farmer. The water birds, as the grebes, gulls, and terns, have greater economic value and do less harm than is ordinarily supposed, while some species, like Franklin's gull and the black tern, are markedly beneficial. It is pointed out in this bulletin that many birds of prey are exceedingly valuable to the farmer, but the opposite is true of the Cooper's hawk, the sharp-shinned hawk, and the goshawk, which should be destroyed as the determined foes of poultry, game birds, and most of the smaller insectivorous species." -- p. 2

Many are eastern forms which are represented in the West by slightly different species or subspecies, but unless the food habits differ they are not separately described.
