Page 249, the very first sentence.

The book has:
"The first method, fly(), is overloaded in the subclass Eagle, since the signature changes from a no-argument constructor to a constructor with one int argument"

Which should be something like:
"The first method, fly(), is overloaded in the subclass Eagle, since the signature changes from a no-argument method to a method with one int argument"
...because fly() is not a constructor.

Hi Peter Deak,

First of all, a warm welcome to CodeRanch!

You are absolutely spot-on! Little bit weird that the official errata overview has already a bunch of items, but such an "obvious" one is not yet on the list. Thanks for taking the effort to share it with us (and the authors). Have a cow!

Hope it helps!
Kind regards,
Roel

Peter,
Welcome to CodeRanch!

I've added this in the errata. That's a good catch. Definitely a method!
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
