A Waterhen's Worlds Territory in Bird Life

A Waterhen's Worlds

Eliot Howard,

Cambridge At The University Press 1940

"The pond where I watch is beside my house. At one end the ground rises steeply to a garden; at the other, slopes gradually to a meadow. In size it is about one-third of an acre, in depth about eighteen inches. For thirty years, except one, Waterhens have lived upon it. Not the same pair; for sometimes the cock disappeared, sometimes the hen. The bird that was left was never long alone: if it was the cock, in a week or two another hen came; if the hen, came another cock."
