Transcript EXPLANATION OF THE PLATES. i. Humming Birds at the Brazils on a Branch of the Orange Tree. The infinite variety of these little beauties, hovering over the lemon and orange blossoms in the groves near Rio de Janeiro, renders it difficult to make a selection. These introduced in this plate were drawn and coloured from nature. That on the wing is called the Fly-bird, from being the smallest of its species, and consequently the least, hitherto known, of the feathered tribes, in any part of the world. II. Blue Banana Bird at Rio de Janeiro, on a Sprig of the Guava Tree. The beauty and variety of the birds on the coast of Brazil are astonishing : they are all specifically distinguished by naturalists, but the inhabitants of Rio de Janeiro generally call them red, blue, green, and yellow banana-birds, as those colours predominate; especially the birds wThich feed on bananas and plantains. The guava is one of the most beautiful and best flavoured fruits at the Brazils, and a great favourite with the domesticated songsters among the Portuguese ladies. III. ^ Hindoo Peasant ascending the the Cocoa-nut Tree, to draw the Tain, or Toddy. The mode of extracting the palm wine, or Toddy, is fully described in the Memoirs. To the Cocoa-nut tree the pot containing the liquor distilled in the night is affixed, for the peasant to potir into a larger vessel. In the fore-ground is a banana tree; and a Hindoo temple, overshadowed by a banian tree, with other oriental scenery, in the distance.
