Uccelli detti Flamenghi1 sono uccelli da aqua Grandi quanto le Oche vaghissimi a vedersi, boni a mangiarsi e le loro penne servano a fare molti lavori

Birds called Flamingos. They are water birds as big as Geese, very beautiful to look at, good to eat and their feathers serve to make many works

  • 1. From Portuguese, flamingo: flamingo [Phoenicopteridae]. It is unclear what birds are depicted, perhaps parakeet. The image here corresponds better to the parakeet description in PW47.
