Crisp clean air; cloudless skies and waves of warmth wrinkling their way skyward from the rich Prairie soil. The old rooster relished the opportunity to stroll through the stubble, gleaning kernels of waste wheat from the straw underfoot. So preoccupied was he with this fall feast that he failed to notice a breeze beginning to stir from the north. Within minutes, the sky turned ashen gray, the air cooled and the breeze stiffened. A spit of rain should have warned him of impending dis- aster but the old rooster per- sisted in his quest for food. Perhaps he recalled the famine conditions imposed through the previous winter. Whatever the reason he fatefully chose to venture far from shelter on tfrs autumn LAND COMPENSATION BOARD Requires; Board Members This is a new Board constltutdcS, under the Expropriation Act which was proclaimed in force on Jujy "Sbard Will deal with expropriations of property initiated by the Departments and a- gencies and by all municipal the Board's primary func- tion will be to hear and decide disputes as to compensation arising out of such expropriations, and in addition will have responsibility for a variety of other matters relating to expropriation procedures.

The sky darkened and the first traces of snow whipped across the stubble. By now, it was futile to fly against the gale and the old cock huddled against the warm earth to wait out the storm. This was not a new ex- perience! Twice before he had been caught in the open during violent but short lived thunderstorms. Such events were commonplace on the Alberta plains. But the storm that now rag- ed about him was different! Wind driven sleet tore through his feathers and clogged his nostrils. He turned to face the wind in a vain attempt to mute its fury. His eyelids froze shut as a full scale blizzard forced temperatures far below freezing. Driving snow balled up in his open mouth as he gasped for air. His body became encased in an icy shell. Death came slowly as his vital air supply was gradually cut off by ice forming in his throat. But the harsh reality of death was never apparent as he lapsed into a semi con- scious stupor induced by the bone chilling cold that enveloped him. Drifting snow soon covered his frozen cor- pse. Gruesome? Perhaps! But this scenario accurately "depicts but one of several ways that weather kills pheasants by the thousands every year. Blizzards are undoubtedly the most obvious of these events for frozen birds can readily be observed for weeks afterward in the snow covered landscape. But the impact of blizzards upon pheasant pop- ulations can be markedly modified by other circum- stances. A fall blizzard which occurs before the birds have moved to wintering areas will kill many more birds than those in mid winter. The same is true of late spring blizzards which trap pheasants in nesting cover. Blizzards striking during mid day when pheasants are feeding kill many more birds than those beginning at night when the birds are roosting in thick cover. Contrary to popular belief, pheasants seldom starve to death after severe blizzards. Pheasants are hardy birds and ordinarily, they can survive prolonged periods of famine provided that they are ade- quately sheltered from severe weather. The birds are quite capable of digging through a foot or more of snow to obtain .food. Less obvious than deaths during blizzards are those caused by cold, wet weather or extremely hot, dry weather during nesting or brooding. Losses at these tunes occur to developing embryos in eggs or newly hatched chicks, neither of which are apparent to casual observers. An important point to remember about the impact of weather upon pheasants is that it is the con- ditions, not the "average" conditions, which determine how seriously the biro's are affected. Six inches of snow falling gently at 30 degrees is of little consequence to pheasants compared to the same amount of snow whipped along at 10 below by 40 mUe per hour All things considered, weather constitutes one of the most important factors influencing pheasant mortali- ty rates A single blizzard may kill over 90 per cent of the pheasants in an area and, as discussed in a previous article in this series, inclement weather during peak hatching may greatly reduce the production of new pheasant broods in some years.
