Article summary

In the Walloon country coal-fields, the Wheatear appears to be attached to the largest and barest waste-heaps - those surrounded by other waste-heaps, not the one embedded in the limits of town. This fact suggests that the adoption of waste-heaps by this bird has been tardy, explains the depletion of the species in these regions, and leads one to propose that tree-planting on waste-heaps be called in question.
