The kingfisher is as yet unidentified, Edwards having drawn it from an unlabelled preserved specimen originally from the
 collection of the Duke of Richmond.  It is quite possible that this is in fact a common European Kingfisher -Alcedo Atthis that
 had been effected by the preserving spirit. A typically discoloured and faded original print is at the The Royal Society, London.
