BIRD CLUB NOTES
Jiramie Joyner read an article
Saturday at the Bird club on the
Redpoll whoae home ia in the North
land where it rears a family in quite j
a business-like way in trees or
bushes. After this accomplishment,
it joins others of its own kind for a
vacation and is rarely seen except
in flocks of 20 to 50. Sometimes
200 or 300 compose a flock. While
on this winter tour the Redpolls visit
and mingle with their cousins, the
Crossltfils and the Goldfinches.
When at home the Redpoll has lit
tle time for singing, but with the
throwing off of family responsibility
it proves how sweet it can sing."
Not at all suspicious, this five and
one-half inch bird will allow a per
son to approach very closely without
becoming alarmed. '
Its bright poppy-red crown is a
contrast to the upper parts of dark
grayish brown streaked with darker
gray and grayish white. 'Hie cheeks,
lower throat, chest and sides of
breast are deep peach blossom pink;
the under parts are white. Although
similar to the male, the female has
no pink coloring. No red is found
on the crown of the young.
Two to five eggs are laid in a
bulky nest constructed of loosely
woven twigs and grasses and warmly
lined with feathers.
At the meeting May 3, Paschall
Barrett read the article.
