Found in Sarah Eddy's Songs of Happy Life (#70)—words Anon, music Paul Ambrose--it is another song in the genre of bird protection, in this case the vogue of nest-collecting, both children and adults. It ends, “Spare the feathered woodland rover; / Let him work and love and sing!” Charles Babcock was inspired to organize Bird Day in the United States in 1894 because of children’s “love of feather ornamentation so heartlessly persisted in by thousands of our women, and the mania for collecting eggs and killing birds so deeply rooted in our boys, are legacies of barbarism inherited from our savage ancestry” (both qtd. in his “Bird Day: How to Prepare for It” 1901, Project Gutenberg).
