Illustrations taken from Our Native Songsters, a book by Anne Pratt published in London in 1853 by the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge. The series of illustrations is part of the Biodiversity Heritage Library's commitment to make more accessible the legacy literature of biodiversity held in their collections and to make that literature available for open access and responsible use as a part of a global “biodiversity commons.”

The Biodiversity Heritage Library (BHL) is a consortium of natural history and botanical libraries that works with the international taxonomic community, rights holders, and other interested parties to ensure that this biodiversity heritage is made available to a global audience through open access principles.
