“The Sick Thrush – 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: “Here is a young thrush who has been very ill. The stable is his hospital, to which he was brought when he was found lying in the road, and where he is nursed and attended to. Now that he is getting better, his appetite is excellent; every day he eats about 134 worms. Soon he will be able to fly away into the wild woods.”
