Transcript z ***************************** VOLUME XVIII, No. 5 September, 1967 "Bird watching is old enough to have stood the test of time, young enough to lie within the age of exploration. By some, it is regarded as a mild paralysis of the central nervous system, which can be cured only by rising at dawn and sitting in a bog. Others regard it as a harmless occupation of children, into which maiden aunts may sometimes relapse. The truth is that it is anything you care to make it. It is unquestionably a hobby that can be thoroughly enjoyed for an entire lifetime. It can be taken up at any age, by the active as well as by the convalescent. To both old and young it yields the same high measure of interest. It is packed with drama because it centers on the annual miracle of creation. It is rich in movement, since birds are among the greatest travelers on our planet. It combines the visual and the auditory, for there are beautifully plumaged birds and equally stirring singers. Most of all, its essence lies in the unknown. Birds travel to the ends of the earth and back, we know not exactly how. Much of their everyday iife is still unrecorded. Countless new channels of knowledge still await exploration by enterprising bird students. The riches offered by a lifelong hobby are not something to be lightly cast aside They are reflected in health, in recreation, and in a peace of mind beyond the price of money." * Joseph J.

OYSTERCATCHERS AHD DUTCH REFUGES by Dirk Hagemeyer How shall I describe my surprise when one week after I had photographed a nesting American Oystercatcher on South Deer Island (see July Spoonbill), I saw its European cousin staring at me from the pages of a Dutch newspaper! The author of the article mentioned seeing several Oystereatchers feeding in the grass on the center island of a divided superhighway. Cars whizzing by at 60-80 miles per hour didn't bother them at all. He remarked that the Oystercatcher, Godwit and several species of duck have of late adapted themselves very well to the encroachment of the human species. I had just arrived in Holland for a visit and for some photography and birding. While there, I spent one week on the Dutch isle of Texel, famous for its bird refuges. One of the refuges
