Excerpt from Himalayan and Kashmiri Birds: Being a Key to the Birds Commonly Seen in Summer in the Himalayas Kashmir

The object of this book is to enable people interested in birds to identify those they meet with while walking in the hill stations of the Himalayas and Kashmir and those they see in the Kashmir valley.

The birds dealt with are the ones commonly seen in summer at such places. As nine out of ten species of hill birds move to lower levels in winter, the bird population of a hill station in winter differs from that in summer.

Had the scope of this book included birds seen in winter at the various hill stations, and those found in summer only at lower elevations than 5000 feet above the sea-level or higher altitudes than 7500, its bulk would have been considerably increased. It would have attained even greater dimensions had I noticed the rare birds that are sometimes seen in hill stations in summer.

Paradoxical though it may sound, the value of this book lies largely inits omissions!
