Geo.K.Palmer,, Clearwater, Fla. writes (June 88) that he has had some interesting flights across the Atlantic to France, Casablanca (French Morocco) Tripoli, and the Azores. At Bermuda he added the Yellow-billed Tropic Bird to his life list. Charlotte Reindl., visiting Austin, considers herself lucky - two bird trips with field expert Edgar Kincaid - trips to Laguna Gloria, Lake Austin and Mansfield Dam. rag_TjgygES| Baby_TOoop_ing_Crane_Vanlshes - June 5, 1956 - New Orleans. One of the two baby whooping cranes born in the New Orleans zoo vanished from its pen the victim of a natural enemy. It is suspected that an owl made off with this baby whooper. Whopper Captured in Texas = June 6, 1956 Lometa - Art adult female whooping crane was captured Tuesday on the Ed Kirby ranch three miles outside Lometa. About six weeks ago two cranes lighted on the ranch, one crane left, but one had an injured wing and could not fly. Kirby roped the remaining crane, confining it to his barn. It was later taken to the Brackenridge Park Zee. NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE = July 1956 The Enigma of Bird Anting by Hanee Roy Ivor. The author nearly 35 years ago established a songbird observatory at his home near Erikdale, Ontario. Here he kept birds in partial captivity to study their habits and emotions. Several months ago with tho help of six photographer friends from Toronto, the author set out to r-eeord bird anting in natural eolor. High speed electronic flash lamps were used te "freeze" the swift action, and a "sod platform" was set up with an ant hill where tame birds performed the act of anting before the camera. These unique photographs reveal one ef the strangest performances in nature — a blue jay and other birds, rubbing their feathers with ants in a mysterious rite few people, have seen. A wide variety ef passerine birds stroke their feathers with ants, yet no one knows why they do it. How they do it is shown by the excellent pictures of these tame jays, starlings, bluebirds and rose-breasted grosbeaks at the author's observatory. (See Article on "Anting" in November 1955 SPOONBILL, Page 7.) HOUSTON PRESS - June 36, 1956 Mother Love Knows No Bars - This story concerns a Houston Blue jay who made the front page of The Houston Press. A young jay toppled from its nest and was placed in a parakeet cage by two Houston youngsters. The parent birds finding the nestling in the cage, continued to feed and care for the young Jay through the bars ef the cage.
