Bennington Banner (Newspaper) - March 2, 1966, Bennington, Vermont Sape of Swamper res rustling of Spring by Carl. T. Ramski Dorset. Less than a week ago i heard the White breasted Nuthatches Spring song. The following Day downy and hairy woodpeckers gave their reveille resounding in our Woods. Here Are sure signs of Spring. The sunlight is brighter and one can be assured that something slowly but surely is happening in the soil As it pours into our bog land and wooded areas. In another week in a sure the Woodcock will be arriving in these parts and adjoining swampy lands where one May be Able to hear the winnowing Aerial flights As his wings soar upward in Gladsome anticipation of the springtime nuptial flight. So too i think of the time i went into the grand Canyon of Arizona and heard the joyous notes of the Canyon Wren in 1917. Could anyone hear and see a happier demonstration of the creative urge than As it comes to Birdland. I think of the Violet Green swallows As they Dove up from the Cloud covered Blanket of the Canyon then Dove into the Cerulean dome afterwards flying Back Arlington Helene Thompson 375-2325 James Michael Douglas june Lynn and Kristie hard children of or.

Though the White Blanket of Snow in these parts is banked up by the Middle of March we expect bluebirds. Many of the Early migrants Brave our Northern zones to fulfil their creative urge. To the naturalist and Birdwatcher these manifestations live in the memories of an oldster of four or More score. A of one thinks reluctantly of Bird life in an age of gadgetry and insecticides. Personally i wish we could fight these tendencies with something More than a half hearted approach. Looking Back fills one with remorse As we read our magazines and newspapers such As the Audubon. That joyous minstrel that Little Brown gnome a the Winter Wren and the Fox Sparrow from March 14-24, Are sure to drive Bird lovers out rather Early some frosty morning. Here at swamp it acres they Are becoming rarer each Spring though i have heard reports from farther West.

Herbert Simmons that 39 evening grosbeaks came to their feeders for two Days about a week ago. They have la of these brightly coloured males and Bronze females steadily feeding on the Snow covered Eastern Pine Trees where they have their various feeders. While some watchers pronounce these Birds a bit Gross and greedy we Felt flattered this morning the 19th, when we had our first contingent of the Gay yellow coloured Birds. We appreciated the Simmons invitation to come and watch their Birds from their Large picture window. They have had meanwhile Gold finches still in their pre nuptial plumage and a red breasted nuthatch female in her demure dress. We have had this Bird appear sporadically. In my minds Eye i see the hordes pushing from somewhere in the Carolinas working slowly but surely to their Northern nesting grounds.
