The occurrence is well known. We * *hear an excited chatter of small birds of * ♦different species drawn by common interest * ♦to one tree. When the annoyance becomes in- * •tolerable, the-owl flies from the tree pur- * •sued by cries that express hatred and dis- • •gust. Possibly the fuss begins by a bird * •coming upon the owl unaware. Its note of a- * •larm might draw the attention of others who * •might assume that the owl had done something * •menacing, contrary to its habit in the day- * ♦time. This would be a breach of the custom • •of the woods that enable owls and small birds* •to exist together in peace during daytime. * •Taken from Viscount Grey's The charm of birds* ********************* * ** PUBLISHED BY THE 0RHITH0L0GY GROUP, OUTDOOR NATURE CLUB, HOUSTON.

A phoebe and several water pipits had also been located. An attractive pine grove, with a thick undergrowth of yupon, constituted the first major stop. Here, the party constituents sallied forth into woods and car trunks to appease appetites both physical and ornitnological. In the woods, we checked off several red-bellied woodpeckers, five or six blue-jays, a score of titmice and chickadees, a white-throat-
