Ramsey Dorset. I awoke shortly after 6 . June 3. The Roseate sunlight was splashing on the upper branches of our Canoe Birches a Little later it turned to Gold on the Boles. A what is so rare As a Day in june the urgency of shaving was before me but the routine of feeding my Feather friends took precedence. My Friend the social Catbird talked and vocalized ardently for the Peanut butter which it knew i was about to place on the front porch rail. With this accomplished i retreated to the living room. A of momentarily i peeped out and the Catbird was spearing the food. Less than a minute later in came the bloody ribbed Rose breasted Grosbeak determined to have his share of the favors. In an instant a Battle ensued. They flew into the air in mortal combat. The Rose breasted so Gally attired in Pulcher etude faced his antagonist with Low poised Defiance.

Straw hats shoes socks jewelry Burt Bros Williams College announces graduation alumni activities to need on the slanting rail. The Friendly slate coloured Catbird on the lower Side of the Angle stretched out ready for More attack. I saw my Chance at a photograph. Such a pose could hardly pass without action on my part. The Lens situation demanded attention. But of such a Short moment to adjust the focus and see that everything was ready for pushing the trigger. I had to Call Edith for assistance. But there was no doubt on the Birds part that they were also in doubt where the first blow could be struck. The intensity of the moment and my perplexity to get the door open and the necessary adjustments in the camera caused befuddlement. But quietly the door was opened and the spinning of the shutter went unnoticed. Then i looked to see that All operations were according to Hoyle. I discovered i had shot my Bolt too hastily. It was at infinite focus and the subjects were hardly six feet away Here was tragedy and i must Awalt development of the film for final results. Of Well such is life full of unfulfilled achievement. After the Battle of the Catbird and Grosbeak the Joyful song of Wolfgang the song Sparrow came with a cheer of thanks for the Peanut butter he had carried to his children. A of everybody knows the social Virtues of my slate coloured Friend the Catbird. But the gorgeous array of the Rose breasted Grosbeak is known Only to the rare observer. The glory of his creamy song and Beautiful coat Are two items that should be clearly described. The Bill is Straw yellow and like All grosbeaks rather Blunt and almost grotesque in shape. The head is shining Black also its Back Tail and wings. Two White spots Are on each of the wings with a Little More White trimming on the breast and a blooded bib at the Throat. Here is Beauty but not so for the drab Olive Green female who must sit on her eggs unnoticed until they Are incubated. For those who Are not familiar with the males wondrous nuptial song i add that it is a masterpiece of Avian Joy interspersed with snatches of conversation so similar to a Robins that Only a musical ear can normally detect the difference. But the conversations of the Catbird and the Rose breasted Grosbeak can hardly be compared in Quality. A of the Reader will readily draw an analogy of Birds conf let Over the Ages and Many a tragedy in his age old struggle for existence in our sadly advanced cultural world with the evolutionary background of our biology.
