“Golden-Bill at home – by Harrison Weir” is a full page book plate image, taken from the “Chatterbox Album of Animals”, published by W.W.Gardner, circa 1878. The short anecdote accompanying the illustration, reads as follows: “How beautiful this Blackbird looks, with his glossy black plumes, bright eyes, and golden bill, standing upon a blossoming bough, and singing with all his heart that rich, sweet, and mellow song, which we all like to hear!”
