Transcript 3 VOLUME XII, No.4 August, 1964 * ********************* * Ornithologists know that the best way * * to see alarge variety of birds is to * * walk the ecotones. One study in Texas * * revealed that the margins of a forest * * clearing had almost twice as many ind- * * ividual birds, representing 41% more st * species, as the interior of the wood- * * land itself. By inhabiting the forest- * * edge ecotone, birds get the best of two * * worlds - insect food and grass for nest * * lining in the meadow, and a chance to * * escape from enemies into the protection * * of the woods. The reason many people * * have large populations of birds in their* * gardens is not only that they hang up * * feeders, but also that they have pro- * * vided shrubs and trees, lawns and flo- * * wer beds, artificial pools and the shel-* * ters of man's own habitations - in * * short, a variety of ecotones within a * * small area. * From Life Nature Library, by Peter Farb 'Ecology' PUBLISHED BY THE ORNITHOLOGY GROUP.

ALASKA TRIP Charlotte Johnson Birdwise, my trip to Alaska was very disappointing. After studying Peterson's Western Bird Guide, I expected to see more common birds in general and more unusual birds in particular than I did. Unfortunately, I was not in the best areas for bird-finding. Anchorage, June 15-19 In the area between the hotel and shore, much of which was not built-up, I saw Arctic Terns, Bonaparte's, Mew, and Glaucous-winged Gulls, Semipalmated Plovers, Savannah Sparrow, Pintail and seven ducklings, Orange- crowned Warblers, Slate-colored Juncos, Robins, Traill's Flycatcher,
