THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN: FRIDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 2, 1694.
3 WE ARE READY FOR 1JUU111JJUUJ THE SCREECH OWL. Mice Form a Large Portion of the Food of This Bird. The screech owl belongs to a group of birds that are readily distinguished from all other classes. Like most ather families of the animal kingdom, some birds of one family usually grad uate iDto their allies in another with out any radical change in their ex ternal characteristics; hence, to a novice, it is often a difficult task to mention the order or family to which a given bird belongs. Not so with the owls. Their peculiar conformation makes most representatives of their order unmistakably owls in the eyes of the most casual observer. From time immemorial there has been in the minds of the ignorant a superstitious dread associated with the owl. It noiseless flitting by night, often in the most unexpected places, suddenly appearing and disappearing, have long given it a place in popular writings with the spirits of those who have shaken off this mortal coil. In addition to the halo of superstition that surrounds this bird, its reputa tion as a chicken thief condemns all owls as public enemies, and conse quently most farmers lose no time in destroying every kind of owl that ap proaches the dwelling. The subject of this sketch is among the best known of the owl family. Ever in search of mice and other ver min around the barns and garden, it is often met with and too frequently killed. The screech owl has long been . famous for its sad, tremu lous notes which often resemble the cooing of a dove, but are rendered more melancholy by their utterance in the dead of night From its low, mournful notes, as well as its sluggish, sleepy appearance in daylight, one would expect this species to be an easy-going, inactive bird. However, such is not the case, for immediately after darkness conceals its movements the screech owl becomes one of the most active of birds, darting here and there with the energy characteristic of a sparrow hawk. A bird thus equipped, with a keen eye and active, muffled wings, its power for good around its much favored haunt the farmyard is almost incalculable. All kinds of small animals fall an easy prey to this active little owL It is especially fond of mice, which form a large portion of its food. Many in jurious insects, as well as some small birds, are destroyed. The dissection of the stomachs of hundreds of these owls taken under all possible circum stances goes to show that the screech owl is big-hly beneficial. In the months of May and June when its hungry owlets must be generously fed. it is less particular what food is procured, and young birds of all the smaller kinds are subject to its at- THE SCREECH OWL. ' tack. But here again the owl's fond ness for the haunts of man has turned its bird-catching propensities to a useful purpose, and while in search of its mouse diet around barns, far more English sparrows are discov ered than native birds that mainly seek safety in the protecting branches of dense trees. The screech owl nests in hollow trees, where it is often compelled to spend most of its time during the day. When once spied by any comaion bird, an alarm is given that brings all the small birJs in the neighborhood to the spot. Thus surrounded by a large hostile force, it- finds no peace until safely lodged in some hollow tree. A description of the bird is almost unnecessary, as it is familiar to al1?

First publication Sept 30. 1894.J There are two distinct varieties one eravish, the other bright rufous. The difference in color is what is termed individual variation, the color having to do with the sex or age of the indi vidual. The length of this bird usually varies from eisht to ten inches, while its breadth (spread) is about twenty two. The screech owl is to be met with in all parts of the United States and north into Canada. It is non-migratory in its habits, depending on a very small quantity of food to stem it over severe winter weather. It has often been known on warm winter nights to store sufficient food for several suc ceeding days. Charles C. Cook, in Country Gentleman. Expensive Carefulness. An unusual summons was received over the telephone not long ago by Dr. David Birney, of the University of Pennsylvania, from a wealthy man in New York, who wished him to go to Long Island. Dr. Birney endeavored to find out something about the nature of the case he was expected to treat, but the man, after securing his promise to go, refused to talk further over the 'phone. The doetor packed a case of instruments at random, and met the man in New York. After taking din ner at the Waldorf they took the train for Long Island, but not a word was said about the operation. When they arrived the man thanked the doctor and paid him fifty dollars; then, in re sponse to the look of wonder from the astonished surgeon, he said: "I saw my. sister bleed to death in a railroad accident for want of a physician, and since that day I have never traveled without one."
