  • Description

    There are a good many bird-fanciers in Moscow ...

    Alexander Varganov, an engineer-mechanic, is keen on canaries ...

    It appears that canaries are taught to sing...

    ... and the teaching is done by a feathered master. Here he is singing a note ... and a whole chorus repeat it.

    Viktor Fedotov, a foreman on a building site, lives near Moscow and he has a whole flock of parrots.

    Many of the young parrots of his were born here, a long way from their native surroundings.

    The best species of the feathered world - the Solovyovs - of the canary family, were displayed at the last bird show in Moscow.

    And these men are fanciers of forest birds which are very rarely seen at homes.

    Here are their charges: the orioles, the voronushka and svirisstel as they are called in Russian.
