For," at the eleven o'clock worship
hour at the Christian Church, Sun
At Saturday's meeting' of the Bine
Club, James Thome read an article
on the Crested Flycatcher, which
described it as being1 eight and one;
half indies long; upper parts, olive;
underneath gray and yellow; crowr
feathers, erectile. ^
The nest is made in tree or stump
cavity or woodpecker hole, from sis
to sixty feet up; is constructed of
grass, rootlets, bits of bark, hair and
pine needles; remarkable for the fact
that it is almost always encircled
with a cast off snake skin, probably
as a ruse to frighten its enemies from
the nest but this is odd as the nest
is always placed in a cavity, where
there la little light or none at all;
No one really knows why this bird
follows this peculiar practice eo it
may be simply a whim jr fancy.
The food of the Crested Flycatch
er shows 94 per cent of animal mat
ter and 6 per cent of vegetable.
Beetles constitute one-sivth of its
food, such as cottonboll and straw
berry weevils and the plum curculio.
Bugs constitute 14.26 per cent of the
diet such as stinkbugs, tree and leaf
hoppers, and cicadas, with a few as
?assin bugs. Grasshoppers, crickets
mi katydids seem to be the favorite
