THE ENTERPKiSE, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 2,' 1689.
A HAWK'S REASONING.
Bow Ha Can-lot! His Pmj Affnlnat ttio
.Wlud with CoiaparaMva Ktiue.
t Bird of prey generally possess Instinct
enough for all oriiin..,-y emergencies. There
we, however, special occasions on which a
call ii made for unusual sagacity, ai.d It Is
then that wo see bow near these creatures
oometormuionind'lntlieBaiue way as our
selves. The author of " 'Twixt Ben Novls
and Olencoe" gives, hearing upon this
point, a story which ho had from the keeper
on n estate In that neighborhood.
One day In July the keoncr in question,
happening to be out cfter vormin with his
gun, saw coming In his direction a bird
which he knew to be some kind of hawk,
ut whose manner of ff irjlit puzzled hi a ex
tremely. It was beiiinir up the wind to
ward him asif with a sorely wounded wing,
ftianifostly liuiiodnl iu Lottie woy that
'tausedltto aifjiagaad struggle strangely
in Its flight.
Seeing that it it kept Its course it was
'likely to pass within eusy shot, the keeper
quietly rotircd into a clump of ferns on one
knee, with his gun ready for action. He
had, however, to wait longer than he bad
expected, for tho hawk meanwhile alighted
on the top of a largo gray bowlder a hun
dred yards awuy, and seemed very busy
about something, though what It was the
keeper at thut distance could not make out.
In about live minutes, however, the hawlt
took wing again, tbis time with a much
more steady and even flight. He was soon
overhead, and near enough to drop to the
l;eeper's gun. On goibg up to his prize the
keeper found thut it was Indeed a hawk,
and beside It was lying a plump partridge,
well grown, but to the keeper's surprise al
most altogether stripped of its feathers.
On going to the bowlder on which the
kestrel had restod for awhile, all the miss
ing feathers of the partridge were found
scattered about, and the keeper Instantly
took In the state of matters from first to
last and explained it thus :
The Uctarel, haviog struck down the
partridge, was carrying the dainty morsel
to his greedy fledglings in their nest. The
wind, however, was strong and gusty and ad
vene to the kestrel's lineof flight ; and of the
wind, the wings and tail, limp and pendant,
of the partridge caught so much that it was
only with great difficulty the plucky little
captor could make any satisfactory head;
Getting tired of the struggle at last he
must have reasoned with himself some
what after this fashion:
"Mjr partridge burden Is more difficult to
get along with than It really need be. Iam
heartily ashamed of myself, acting thus like
k booby. I will take a rest on yonder bowl
lor and pluck away all the wing and tail
leathers of my dainty bit of game, an opera
tion which, whllo it leaves my partridge
suite as big and good to eat as before, will
enable me to boar it up and carry it against
tho wind with comparative ease."
