Here the relations of various land birds are studied. Some of the interesting things that are suggested here, are that owls are related to the diurnal birds of prey, that owlet-nightjars are related to the swifts, crested swifts and hummingbirds, that the cuckoo-roller is found to be close to frogmouths and that hoopoes and hornbills are found to be related to each other.
