Transcript VOLUME VIII NO. 3 JULY 1959 ***** ****** ******* • RUBY-THROATED HUMMINGBIRD • •In Spring the ruby-throated hummingbird leaves* •its winter quarters, keeping pace as the sea- * •son advances with the opening of its favorite * •flowers. The bird's preference for some of • •these is so marked that it seems to regulate • •its migration so as to arrive on the very day • •of their blossoming. In the Boston Mountains • •of Arkansas it is said that the blossoming of * •the dwarf buckeye and the arrival of the hum- • •mers was found to be coincident. For it is * •upon the flowers of this shrub that the ruby- • •throat finds most of its subsistence for the * •first two weeks of its arrival. • ***** ***** ******** PUBLISHED BY THE ORNITHOLOGY GROUP.

The twenty-four in attendance had "divvied up" into a total of eight cars, and our ultimate destination was the beach at Freeport. With gas tanks full and clean windshields for better birding, the group drove on, ignoring the overcast skies, to Miller Road. With a canal on one side of us and some of the loveliest swamp area in the country on the other, the birding increased to an intensity quite gratifying for a summer trip. Among the species logged here were the cattle egret, yellow-shafted flicker, peewee, bluebird, lark sparrow, great crested flycatcher, yellow- crowned night heron, eastern kingbird, summer tanager, yellowthroat warbler, yellow-billed cuckoo, dickcissel, downy and red-headed woodpeckers, and the white-eyed vireo. Carl Aiken hit the ditch to spot a barred owl and prothonotary warbler for us. We all envied him those A & H boots. He also identified two fledglings as painted buntings. Though not deserting our ornithological calling, we were foroed to sympathize with the botanists and admire the abundant water hyacinth in the swamp.
