PREFACE

PREFACE.

IN this part of my Manual I have attempted to deal with the species of Ducks and Snipes which occur within the limits of the Indian Empire, forty-four in number.

The Game Birds which are now known with certainty to occur in India number altogether one hundred and thirty-four species, of which two have been discovered since the issue of the first part of this Manual and are now brought to notice in an Appendix to this volume.

The treatment of the Ducks has entailed an amount of original investigation which I little contemplated when I first proposed to write about them, and the issue of this Part has, in consequence, been some¬what delayed. My thanks are due to my friend Mr. W. P. Pycraft for much kind assistance.
