About this book

Language: German

The exotic bird group discussed in this volume is highly peculiar in many ways. The singular form of the claws, the remarkable condition of their plumage coloration, their mysterious way of life that has been confined to the tropical African continent, their still pretty unclear phylogenetic kinship position, etc. have attracted the attention of ornithologists, whereas the splendid colors and the cheerful, lively attitude makes these birds desirable for practical bird keepers. And yet it is precisely these birds that are almost completely unknown in other circles of ornithologists, and therefore deserve attention as a matter of urgency, so as to be once moved a little closer to the attention of all amateur naturalists and particularly bird watchers, which is the main task of this volume.

Summary in German:
Die in dem vorliegenden Bändchen besprochene exotische Vogelgruppe ist in vielfacher Hinsicht höchst eigenartig. Die sonderbare Bildung der Klammerfüße, die merkwürdigen Verhältnisse der Gefiederfärbung, die zum Teil geheimnisvolle Lebensweise, die auf den tropisch-afrikanischen Erdteil beschränkte Verbreitung, ihre immer noch ziemlich unklare stammesgeschichtlich verwandtschaftliche Stellung im System u. a. m. erregen die Teilnahme der Vogelkundigen, wie die ungemein prächtige Färbung und das muntere, lebhafte Wesen diese Vögel für den praktischen Vogelpfleger begehrenswert erscheinen lassen. Und doch sind gerade diese Vögel in weiteren Kreisen auch der Vogelkundigen so gut wie völlig unbekannt und verdienen es daher vordringlich, einmal etwas näher in das Blickfeld aller Natur- und besonders Vogelfreunde gerückt zu werden, worin die Hauptaufgabe des Bändchens besteht.
