Transcript ¥ VOLUME X No. 15 July 1961 THE SWALLOW - Eric Hosking !fao Ifes) is-*•###**** Cyril Newberry As soon as the young swallows are able to fend * for themselves and show an inclination to wander # off on their own, the parents seem to lose all in- # terest in them, and almost immediately set about # preparations for rearing a second brood. Sometimes they use the same nest again —- but more often they move to a disused nest they built in a previous year. The hen swallow starts to lay her second clutch of eggs almost as soon as the nest is ready.* Procedure is much the same as before and an egg is * laid eaeh day until the clutch is complete. Then * follows the incubation by the hen, the hatching of * the chicks, and the days of ceaseless hunting by # both cock and hen young fledgling swallows of # the first brood, if they have not wondered away * from their parents, help in the task of feeding * the young chicks of the second brood. —— * Occasionally, if conditions have been favorable* to early nesting, a few pairs of swallows may even * attempt to rear a third brood, — but it often * happens that the young ones of the third brood are * deserted before they are fully fledged, for the # instinct of migration is so strong when it comes # to a bird that it overpowers all other instincts, # even that of parenthood. * *#»**#*#####*-###**#**##-H-#** PUBLISHED BY THE ORNITHOLOGY GROUP, OUTDOOR NATURE CLUB, HOUSTON, TEXAS FORTHCOMING ACTIVITIES Aug. 3 (Thursday) O.G.

Jeter, will be aboard, with his authenticator - Jim Stewart. The San Antonio Audubon Society is coming, they sent the Alamo as a deposit to insure their reservations. Rumors are flying that the flat-chested Regional Editor of the Audubon Field Notes, Fred Webster, will be lured from the hills of Travis County. Indoor plumbing is provided as the come-on for Edgar Kincaid. Vic and Carl will definitely be in the bait-throwing crew. Ruth Moorman offered a first mortgage on the Battleship as her reservation insurance. For anyone else $1.00, or reasonable facsimile, will hold a space.
