Transcript 2. ************ # * * * ********* VOLUME XLV, No. 10 Ffebruary, 1966 Greasy kid stuff is nothing new in the bird world. The oil gland is a small nipple-tipped structure hidden under soft feathers at the root of the tail. Under stimulation by the bill, it secretes fatty acid, fat and wax. Shape and amount of secretion vary with the species. As many as eight openings may be bunched around it, creating a brush for easier distribution. The gland reaches its maximum size in aquatic birds and is reduced or nonexistent in quail and hummingbirds. A b'ird preens upon awakening, or after a dip in a puddle or following a refreshing dust bath. The bird's probing bill releases the oily substance and the bird liberally anoints head and beak with it. Meticulously it is spread over every feather, loose ones being pulled out and rumpled plumage smoothed. Deprived of this structure, a bird would not survive long in the wild. The protective coating insulates and streamlines it for flight. Even the bill benefits; without secretion it would bscome dry and scaly.

WINTER VISITORS by John Tvetea Oa January 15 Gloria and I had the thrill of seeing a lifer, Anna'a Hummingbird, thanks to the bird call. While a number of us were watching the male, another Hummingbird joined it in a large tree. I only saw another bird of apparently the same fize, but others who got a better look at it felt it was a female Anna's. Is it possible that a pair is breeding Here? I photographed
