The birds naturally are ear- ly risers, and when Mr. Bar- row goes in to feed them theii seed and set out their baths, at fi a.m., the noise is pretty devastating. "Fortunately, it'; rather a pretty Mr. Barrow said, "and it's nice to hear when the summer birds have gone." In the greenhouse adjoined to the aviary, Mr. Barrow has given free run to a cheeky inglish robin and a colorful cockafiel. "The robins we have in 'anacta are really a species of Mr. Barrow said.

A spokesman for the Letli jridge AWA said the group was wary of the announced purpose of this year's trip to promote he establishment of a provin cial park in B.C. but i vould not protest the trip as ong as its avowed purpose was :ouched in those terms. There had been plans for the AWA to meet thf cavalcade al lameron Lake and to make leir opposition known, but jese were cancelled when it vas learned the caravan will fficially disband before it eaches Cameron Lake, the pokesman said.
