Transcript Frank & Mary Belle Kokesh 3-5-63 On February 12th a Black-headed Grosbeak turned up on our feeder. It was apparently a female. During the following week we saw a Grosbeak every morning at breakfast-time, but its pattern of coloring seemed to change somewhat from day to day. This was cleared up on February 19th when we had two birds at the same time. The birds have continued to appear almost every morning through March 5th. They have striped heads and the uniform light underparts of the female, but the wings seem too dark and the white patches too outstanding. We now believe they are immature males. They have seemed clumsy and uncertain of themselves like young birds do. In the last day or two, the head seems to be turning black. Linda Snyder I didn't underline the Cinnamon Teal reported last month because I did not have details which,""as-edit or's, we required on rare and accidental (or exceptional) birds for the Clearing House. You might care to mention that those details are now in and it was a very good observation. Jerry Strickling 3-3-63 Nancy and I went to Galveston today via the Texas City Dik«. On the Dike we saws 50 Red-bosomed Mergansers 1 Common Golden Eye (Male) 4 Old Squaws (2 pairs) 30 Common Loons 2 Suspicious Loons 1 Brown Pelican At Galveston at end of Anderson Way sound (Railroad) we saw 3 Oyster Catchers. They yelled at me and said "Hey, have you seen Jim and Pat lately?" BIRDS FIND GREENERY ON LAKE FREIGHTER from Christian Science Monitor (Sundial Story) Because birds flying across the considerable expanse of the Great Lakes need places for temporary stops, Second Mate J. P. Perkins of the Sewell Avery decided to provide them with a floating "forest." His kind provision has been a great success. More than 200 species have used "Perkins National Forest" - which in summer consists of two willow trees planted in buckets and evergreens in spring and fall—on the deck of the iron- ore carrier. The birds prefer alighting in this bit of greenery to other parts of the ship, and make stops to rest in the potted trees. Perkins has derived a great deal of pleasure from his hobby. He uses a movie camera to take pictures of the visiting birds, and has Identified 18 flyways used by migrating birds on the Great Lakes. However, the birds are not the only ones to benefit, for his shipboard bird sanctuary is popular with birds and people alike. Many other sailors have become interested in birds from associating with Perkins and from watching his feathered visitors.
