BIRD CLUB NOTES
Tommie Bennett, a pew. member of
the Bird club, read an'article about
the kittiwake gt the meeting Satur
day morning. Eighteen inches long,
its head, neck, undnparta and tail
are pure white. The eyelids are red
and the hjpd toe 1b absent.
One of the interesting characteris
tic trtits which this bird has is pur
suing its prey by hovering over the
water and plunging head foremost
into the Bea with much dash and vi
gor. These gulls are often seen fol
lowing whales, apparently pa get
fragments of fish rejected or dropped
by them. Observers say they seem
to know when the whale most rise to
Although it feeds mainly on fish,
the kittiwake can eat other animal
or refuse matter. For drinking this
gull prefers salt water and is often
observed sleeping peacefully on great
osean rollers, with it* head tucked
under wing?-literally "rocked on the
cradle of the deep."
A great wanderer and decidedly
democratic iff disposition, the kitti
wake is often found in the company
of other gulls- and sea birds.
~~ The nest is built on a rocky ledge
overlooking water and is made of
grass and seaweed.
