in the former returning the Titmice to their proper place, and in the latter throwing the Chatterers into a separate genus, and this utmost propriety ; but notwithstanding the Lanius Genus is ranked by him among the Accipitrine Order, it is not without a particular note, confessing his sentiments to be wavering ; and it is most likely, that had he lived to utter another edition, we should have seen these birds placed among the Pies.$ Kramer is inclined to this with the have the Shrike Genus ranked with them,i| though in his work it is put with the Chatterers, in the Passerine Order but Scopoli§ places — * Yet he says, the Pie-grieches and Pie ought to be ranked together—" Je pense que tons pourroient n'en faire qu'un les Pies convenant en beaucoup de choses avec Hist.des Ois.'i p 309;
