And the fragrances of the forest,—that general woodsy scent which fills all their aisles, the rich bouquet of the fox grapes, the peculiar evanescence of the witch hazel, the balsamic odours of pine and hemlock—these add so much to the charm of the earth, far from the purlieus of men. With these belong the slight, subdued, musical whispers of the mountain sparrow; some stray warblers not yet able to fling themselves away from the charm of our woods; the juncos and the cheery chickadees; and over the wide landscape the crow's sagacious observations.
