coast to Massachusetts and Maine; but the only recordwhich can be attributed to this State is a specimen taken off Sandy Hook,and reported bv DeKay, in his Birds of New York, page 294. BIRDS OF NEW YORK 175 Family FFiEOATID A.E> Man-o-war Birds Characters. Steganopodes with long, straight beak hooked at the end;smah pouch and feathered lores; tail long, forked, of 12 feathers; feet verysmall, the middle toe long and pectinate. Frigate-birds have an expanseof wing and power of flight which, in proportion to their size, surpasses allother birds. The common name of this bird is derived from its swiftnessof flight and its habit of coursing around other birds and swooping down onthem to secure their prey. It is often seen soaring with motionless wings,in the teeth of the gale, or circling almost out of sight in the air above thegathering storm. The speed and ease with which they snatch their preyfrom the water, or rob the gulls and terns, is often marveled at by naturalhistory writers.
