Transcript VOLUME XVII, NO. 6 October, 1968 THIS WEATHER IS STRICTLY NOT FOR THE BIRDS, LET'S HEAD SOUTH!I! PUBLISHED BY THE ORNITHOLOGY GROUP. OUTDOOR HATURE CLUB, HOUSTOH. TEXAS The above sketch is reproduced with the permission of the publisher (Chas. A. Bennett Co., Inc., 809 West Detweiller Drive, Peoria, Illinois 61614,)of a book titled "BIRD HOUSES" by L. Day Perry and Frank Slepicka. The statement made by the bird stems directly from the imagination of the editors of the Spoonbill, and is not in the book... We think you might enjoy reading this book if you never intend to build a bird house. "BIRD H0USES"is a book written with a dual purpose - to present plans and describe the construction of a number of types of houses, nesting boxes, feeding shelves and shelters for birds which will occupy them with regularity, and secondly to acquaint the reader with the habits and preferences of birds which usually may beAnduced to accept man-made abodes. Designs are given for specific birds because the species for which eaeh box is designed is interested only in whether it approximates his natural nesting requirements. The Chapter "Principles of Hest-Box Construction" sets forth certain principles of design, the materials best suited for nesting boxes, how to build for protection from rain and heat, how to provide ventilation so necessary for bird health, how far apart to place boxes for certain species, the construction of proper entrance holes, how to discourage some of our "pest" birds, etc. Instructions for building colony houses, considered to be the most difficult houses to build, are also given in this Chapter. It is obvious from the book that the authors are drawing on knowledge acquired from years of observation and experimentation. They make it very easy for the "Do it Yourself" bird house builder, giving dimensions of nesting boxes, complete bills of materials for each type of house, with diagrams showing how to put the materials together. Their designs run the gamut from a rustic log cabin to a Swiss chalet for a dainty wren family. If you have never tried luring some of your feathered friends to a man-made abode, reading this book and looking at the very skillfully designed plans will undoubtedly stimulate you to retire to a corner of your garage and start building! "BIRD HOUSES" may be ordered from the publisher given above, the price $1. binding, cash to be included with the order. - - Julia Bradley A LETTER FROM A MEMBER WHO IS PRESEHTLY LIVING IH HOLLAND: in paper We thought our readers would be interested in a letter received from Nettie Busby of
