Transcript 2. For many thousands of years birds have retained the habits handed down to them by theirancestors, each species according to its own particular pattern. The majority never deviate, carrying their faithfulness even to the point of deserting an area if its character changes enough to interfere with their ancient ways. Yet there are a few kinds that have taken altered conditions in their stride and availed themselves of facilities which only our human civilization has laid before them. VOLUME XII, No. 2 June, 1964 The Chimney Swift is a striking example of this ability to change with the times. Long before the first man-made chimney was dreamed of our swifts roosted and built their nests in hollow trees, as some still do in very remote regions. But when chimneys appeared on the scene the birds seemed to recognize their new opportunity, and today that is the customary place to find their strange, glued homes of twigs. Robert S. Lemmon PUBllSHED BY THE ORNITHOLOGY GROUP, OUTDOOR NATURE CLUB, HOUSTON, TEXAS -OMING EVENTS Summer is here. Time to turn on the air conditioners, get out the bird books and study. There are no activities for July. There will be an O.G. meeting in August and the plans for the September field trip are for another pelagic trip led by Commodore Strickling. Details later. P.S. No July field trip. Or August, either. FROM THE PARKS AND WILDLIFE DEPARTMENT Austin, June. Warnings that individuals who catch young wildlife for pets or harm protected birds will be prosecuted, have been issued by the law enforcement division of the Parks and Wildlife Department. "We get complaints every day that persons have been picking up young of the wild particularly fawn," says J.B. Phillips, coordinator of law enforcement for the Parks and Wildlife Department. "This is strictly against the law and wardens have been instructed to make arrests and file cases." Every day complaints come in that fawns have been picked up, some of them when the mother deer is close by. He pointed out that the wild animal usually takes care of itself much better if left alone. Permits are required for raising wildlife in captivity and the permit must be held before the animal is captured. Numerous arrests have resulted from pictures appearing in newspapers of persons displaying a baby animal. This is strong evidence which stands up in court when cases are filed. Tyler, June. Many vacationing wildlife enthusiasts are including an island noted for bird-watching in their summer itinerary. Langley Island, nestling in the middle of 2,500 acre Lake Tyler in Smith County, offers a variety of feathered friends to interest visitors.
