done so on any previous year of my experience, as far as I have been able to judge, after any long interval, till the following breeding season; 'and as I have been constantly on the same ground both winter and summer during the last three years, it is possible I may not be mistaken. If this be the case, the argument in favour of the immediate destruction of the female will preponderate over that urged in behalf of leaving the nest unmolested till the young birds are fledged, with the chance of trapping both the old birds; for, even admitting this method to be generally successful, I presume it is not invariably a certainty. But what is an infallible certainty connected with this plan, is a vast sacrifice of game, and that at the most important season of the year, just when birds are breeding; so that you may estimate your loss, when henharriers and falcons are left to breed, not by single birds, but by packs; and as the young birds would not be fledged for three weeks or a month from the time when the first opportunity of killing the hen bird at the nest might have presented itself, I leave it to those who are cognisant of the destructiveness of these hawks to form their own opinion on the subject.
