from that of tho adults in that bee

This is probably due to the fact that
animal food lias a higher nutritive
valuo and is more easily digested
than tho available vegetable , food
As the nestlings increase in weight
from one -fifth to one-half daily and
at certain stages of growth require
dailv more than their own weight in
insects, it is essential, that their food

blackbird, catbird, robin, cedar wax-
wing, anil ungiisn sparrow, mingie

ing quantities with the insects fed to
their young, though insects usually
remain the chief component of tho
food until maturity is nearly reached,
But these birds generally substitute
such insects as hard beetles earn-

selected aro generally such hairless
kinds as canker worms, cutworms,
and army worms, all of , which are
serious pests. But hairy caterpillars

ize'al and atteution demanded of the
parent are astonishing, and result in
jtho destruotioh of ' great quantities
!of injurious "insects. Two or three
examples of this have been given.
Anotner may do aaaea, witu an
estimate of the saving effected
through the removal of pests: i Din
ing tho outbreak of Rocky Mountain
locusts in Nebraska in 18743877,
Prof. Samuel Aughoy.saw a lons-bill-
ed.marsh wren carry 30 locusts to
1 J".-.. I.. 1 ' A i. XI '
nei; yuu hi uu iiuur, ivi inis ruie,
for seven hours a bay, a
consumo 210 locusts
per day, and
the passerine birds of tho eastern
half of Nebraska, allowing only 20
I 1 1 . xl 1 i-i i.
nroous 10 ino squuru-mno, wouiu ao
slrov daily 1G2.77UO00 of tho pests.
The average locust weights about 15
grains, and Is capablo each dav of
consuming it own weight of standing
forage crops, corn and wheat. Tho
locusts eaten by' tho nestlings would
therefore be able to destroy in one
day 174.3!)7 tons of crops, which at
$10por toh would bo worth $1,743.07.
This cnso may set;vo as au illustration
needed, that is, at tho poriod of
reatest agricultural activity and
eforn the pafasitio insects can bo
dependedon to,ceduce tho pests. The
encouragement of birds . i'o- nest on
tho farm and tho discouragement of
nest robbing . are thereforO more
than, mero matters of -sentiment;
thoy return an actual .cnih.Ipqurval.
