MODUtAN ch spnag and fall, Canada is crossed by myriads of migrating birds on their wav from southern countries to the Arctic. They fol- low regular routes, or Flyways, and where these intersect there is a Crossway. Most birds flv at an altitude of three thousand feet when on these annual trips, but have favorite places along the way where they like to rest and feed. One such y is up the eastern coast of the continent, so-called the Atlantic Flvway. Another passes over Mani- toba. while here, m Alberta, we have the Foothills Route. One of the resting places on this latter route was first observed by men when the North West Mounted Police built Fort Calgary in 1875. Today, on that self-same spot, where the Bow joins the El- bow, is the Inglewood Bird Sanc- tuary. Wild geese and duties attract much attention as migratory birds, because of their size and because of their interest to hunters. Of these, to Inglewood each year come malard and pintail ducks; Canada, blue, snow, "white-fronted geese. An- nual visitors are also the Hoss geese on their way from California to the eastern Arctic. OK HENDERSON' LAKE Lethbndge is near enough to the Foothills Route to have migratory "geese, ducks, and even, whistling swans, nave been ceen at Henderson. Lake. Another well-known geese Syway Is at Sullivan Lake, not far from Calgary, and also on the Foothills Route. It was there that last fall Launtz- Melchoir, of the Metropoli- tan Opera, had some hunting. In the autumn season great flocks of ducks end geese, on their long trek southwards, congregate in. the Imcana, Strathmore, Gleichen and Acadia, districts of Alberta. Kerry Woods in his book about the Red Deer country, "Three Mile tells the story of a pair of geese that decided to nest there, one coring. They raised their family and in the fall re-joined their brethren on the migration south. SANDHILL CRANES It was observed that sandhill cranes used the Foothill Route in 1945 for the first tune in twenty- five years. Usually they go in and out by way of Saskatchewan and Manitoba, Large numbers of them were observed last fall on the lakes near High River, another resting place on the route. The town of Pineher Creek is directly on the route. Spring and all its poplar trees are alive with tottering Visitors. Just north of ic town the route crosses another from, the Pacific comes through the Crows' fest Pass. This latter Flvway is not used so auch by birds as by insects and t times the air in that district is thick; cloud of migrating winged creatures. One such occasion in the early summer of 1942 when ragon-flies went down to a ren- ezvous on the praines. In the all they returned the same way, enroute to "winter" at the Pacific In September. 1945, the district sad another invasion when, the foreigners" were tortoise shell but- erflies. These were rather reddish n color, with black and white markings. They migrated over, or through, the maia range of the toctaes from their home on the slopes. As the food for their arvae is the broad-leaied ever- reen, not grown on the praines, here was speculation as to their destination and ultimate fate. During a mild winter a few hawks mav be seen in Alberta, but the crows migrate each fall. Prior to their "take off" they congregate n the wheat fields of the provnice nd hold much raucous discussion. A favorite gathering place for them s in the North Fork district, north of PIncher Creek. What makes birds migrate? We don't know.
