G, Field Trip to Gove (Noel Perley) Despite threatening weather, an impressive group of 32 birders showed up for the annual Cove excursion. Our guide was to be Mr. Arlie K. McKay, an expert observer whose consistency and thoroughness in so restricted an area (8 by 15 miles) ean only be compared with that of Connie Hagar of Rockport. Before joining the main group at the Battlegrounds, the writer and his party (Vie Emanuel and John O'Neill) decided fcoiffever the Memorial Park area.

Although showers continued to hamper our birding efforts, Mr, McKay's lively conversation about his experiences
