to visit Hie flamingo colonies known
to e\lat In the vicinity.
Subsequent research showed that
the colony was regularly frequented
by these birds as a breeding resort,
but that apparently a different spot
was chosen each year. Eight groups
or villages of nests were found within
si v.idiii.s of n mile, enih having evidently
broil occupied only one yoar.
The largest of these, placed on a
inuil bar only an inch or two above the
level of the surrounding water, was a
hundred yards in length, and averaged
about thirty yards in width. An estimate,
based on an actual count ot a
portion of this colony, gave a total of
"JO!)o nests for an area of approximately
only "T.coO square feet. This rookery
we judge to have been occupied the
previous year. ,Nt a distance of a mile
we found nests scattered about in a
dense growth of iuan:.;rov< s. Ilere the
birds were found at work upon their

A (lock whs soon winch was estimated
to contain about 700 birds a

r.o .-hut was tired and a retreat was
promptly n.ade, the birds were disturbed
by our intrusion, and either
discontinued operations or removed to
nmnc other locality, nm! eventually
we were forced to leave without seeing
fresh nests. Those in process of
building, however, told somewhat the
