his own tast-es and, as an article of food,I have yet to fjnd any game equal to thePheasant. It is very like quail but with thegreat advantage of good size.

PRAIRIE SHARP-TAILED GROUSE {Pedioecetes phasianellus campes-tris). The typical Sharp-tail is found from Central Alaska and BritishColiunbia east to Ontario and western Ungava; the Colmnbian Sharp-tailinhabits the region from northeastern Cahfornia and Colorado north toAlberta; and the present variety occurs from Illinois and Kansas north toManitoba. The three varieties differ only slightly in the tone of coloring,and even more slightly in size, averaging on 16 in. in length. UnlikePrairie Chickens, these birds do not thrive on cultivated land, but advanceahead of the settlers and make their homes in ijiore remote country.
