Yellowhammer – 1894

YELLOW-HAMMER Emberiza citrinella – Resident.

One of our most abundant small birds. They are believed by the Welsh people to encourage snakes to enter their nests to devour the young birds, and are on this account held by them in great aversion. In other parts of the world this species has evil things reported of it in the folk-lore, and is much persecuted.
