Written and published in 1909 the amusing title of this book is based on a systematic study of the economic value of birds in relation to agriculture. An interesting read, although happily most birds seem to be useful, although the bad birds range from 'harmful' to 'chiefly hurtful' or the more mild 'must be kept in check' through to the 'doubtful' magpie. Illustrations are there to guide you through.
