BIRDS OF ALLEGHANY CO
ntAITS OF THE CEDAR WAX
(By Claude J. Smith.)
This quiet bird is a permanent re
sident here with us, but makes its
presence known more in winter, when
it roams about over the countryside
in large flocks. I have seen flocks con
taining hundreds and some few con
taining thousands of these birds, of
ten in company with Starlings.
They feed on berries and fruits and
seem to relish wild cherries and poke
berries in particular.
■ The usual position of the nest, ac
! cording to my observation, is an or
chard tree. In fact, I have never
found one outside of an orchard. The
usual distance is from 7 to 15 feet
from the ground. I have found it,
without exception, to be a handsome
structure, being rather bulky but
compact, and made of bark, leaves,
roots, twigs, weeds, paper, rags,
twine and wool. One nest I discover
ed mas made entirely of wool and
•ags with some sycamore balls orna
menting the walls. It is usually lined
with fine grasses, moss, wool, and
In my locality the nesting season
is from mid-June through July. Three
or four eggs are the usual comple
ment, but I have found a few nests
containing five. The color is from a
light slate to a deep stone color, ting
ed with olive and blotched and spot
ted with dark brown and purple. The
most of the eggs I have seen were
rather dark. On several occasions I
have approached to within a foot of
the parent bird sitting on the nest.
They are the very picture of silent
fear, stretching the neck and depress
ing the crest, and seemingly afraid
They have no song but carry on a
conversation with themselves with r.
soft hiss. I have always loved these
quiet Quaker-like birds, which arc
here today, gone tomorrow, as were
the Nomads of olden times.
The members of the S. C. W.’s were
delightfully entertained by Mrs. Tom
Riggins at a candy making last Wed
nesday evening, August 9. They met
