Transcript Volume V No. 1 May 1956 €£) ************ ****** * BLACK AND WHITE WARBLER * Among wood warblers, only one stands per- * fectly clear, utterly non-confusing. The * Black and White resembles no cousin; he is * completely himself — formally dressed, * sensibly named, interested in good works. * If he has not set the world on fire like * the Prothonotary or the Cerulean, neither * has he ever caused anyone a moment's hesi- * tation. When he says "We see," he takes * the words right out of your mouth. * E. B.
