There is a very active ornithological organization near him and he says that all the lumber and hardware stores sell feeders, bird food, and bird houses of all kinds. So far he has added five birds to his Connecticut list that weren't on his Texas list. They are Mute Swan, Old-squaw, Pheasant, Great Black- backed Gull, and Blaek-oapped Chickadee, His yard seems to be a minature sanctus y within itself and the fact that he has already listed 25 species (8 at his feeder) tends to prove it. The latest and most unusual bird in his yard was a Chipping Sparrow which appeared on November 24. ********************** OFF THE PRESS The Warblers of North America is now available for $15.00, This unique volume contains 35 superb color plates by John Henry Dick and is edited by Ludlow Grlscom and Alexander Sprunt, Jr., with contributions by 21 other leading ornithologists. It has been truly said that this will become a collectors item. The long awaited A.O.U. Checklist has also made its appearance among the new ornithological publ I cat Ion's ".""""The fifth edition of this "bird dictionary" can now be secured for $8.00. When visitors in the lobby of the National Bank of Commerce during the holidays hear a Mockingbird's song, a Robin's call to its mate, or an owl's hoot, it will be real. That is, a tape recording of the bird voices. Birds will be the motif in this year's Christmas decorations in the bank. In the lobby, there'll be colorful likenesses of Bluebirds, Cardinals, Crows, Doves, Owls, Blue Jays, Mockingbirds, Robins, and Woodpeckers. Their calls will seem to oome alternately, from a big tree in the west end of the lobby. A. Dee Simpson, vice-chairman of the board, and C. A. Barrett, cashier, have given a pat on the back to Winston B. Booker, manager of the Gulf Building, for working out the details and directing the installations.
