ding Personal Mention.

their feeding places, the blue jay es
pecially often. This handsome bird
found, a friend in Emerson. He said
in its defense "It does more good than
harm. One writer states that the
blue jay has the habit of burying nuts
and hard seeds in Oie ground so that
many a waste Iace is clothed with
trees and shrubs.
The word from Bear Hill is "of
purple finches musical all day long,
the fox sparrow, field sparrow and
cow bird are there, phoebes are nest
ing." The field sparrow has also been
heard on Huntington lane and the
purple grackle. The field sparrows'
song which begins with three musical
whistles and ends with sweet thrills
is somewhat like the rich melody of
the vesper sparrow. It is a bird of
the pastures and uplands and it sings
from early morning till after sunset
