I Evening Chat
Two squares from the county court
house and along a greatly traveled
thoroughfare a colour of song hlrdi
of various varieties and species are
spending a most delightful summer.
Their summer quarters which are the
combined properties of J. M. Hartley
and A. J. Stone located on Qulncy
street at the head ot Jackson, comprises
some four acres much of which
Is thickly wooded with trees and
shrubbery and entirely grasB grown.
Most of the birds have spent the entire
season there some of which, Including
a pair of cardinals, have been
on the premises since last fall,
i. At present the cardinal family Is
taking precedence lii the point of Interest.
The mother bird in at present
setting on her nest which she built In
a tree close to the porch of one of the
rftsfitanren and where she can be eas
illy observed, while the male bird la still
caring for a family of two youngBters,
which have grown to be as large as
the parents but who are still persistant
In their demand for constant feeding.
In addition to his care for the
youngsters, the male frequently visits
_ - the nest of hia mate and carries with
him the beBt trophies of his day's
hunt for food. Each day the male bird
takes the two youngsters away for a
flight, being absent ior several hours
at a time. Toward evening his song
,/ will be heard in the distance, and the
)(? mate rising from her nest will answer
him. The music comes nearer with
a pause in a near by clump of trees
where the youngsters are settled for
the night; then a brief visit to the nest
Df his mate and the tired parent himself

male bird has acted as a barometer,
which seldom failed in its calculations.
If the night appeared to be stormy or
In many Instances when there was
not a cloud in the ohv, the male cardinal
roosted for the night under the
aves of the porch, apparently unmindful
of the human occupants. Many
nights when the ?k; was cloudless it
was thought that Sir Cardinal had
failed in his prognostications but before
morning, the rain was sure to deBcend.
One night Sir Cardinal perBuaded
his mate to occupy these comfortable
quarters with him The next
night before he had reached his roosting
place, the femste bird, who evidently
had thought rne quarte p etty
fair heibHif, appeared and quietly
elltubed to the perch which her mate
usually occupied. This was not In
keeping with Sir Cardinal's ideas of
the fitness of things Hut he did not
attempt to oust her by force rathi r he I
[lew to a near hv tree unit hnean in rim
most alluring tones to attrsct her from
the perch. From one tree to another
he flew telling in the most enthusiastic
notes that he had found the most delightful
plage Imaginable. But the female
bird remained obdurate and after
i half hour had elapsed a sadder and
wiser Sir Cardinal climbed to another
perch under (be eves and settled himself
for the night The next evening;
scarcely had the sun set before ho re
lurned and took up his quarters in his
favorite perch.
During the summer a pair of Baltimore
orioles built their nest or rather
hung their nest (o a slender limb of a
poplar tree, so slender indeed that
great apprehension was felt lest the
winds would bring i. tn the ground.!
But the birds had calculated bettei
than their friends and while the wind
storms raged the nest gayty swung to
and fro but never did it loosen its hold
on the slender branch. A family of
orioles was raised in the nest. The j
cat birds have also raised families
here and robins have raised innumerable
In the last few weeks famlies of
wood thrushes and chipping sparrows
and flickers have taken up their quarters
there but if they are nesting the
p>ace it is not known. Little attempt
is made to locate nests of the birds
for tear of frightening them awav.
They have met with -he warmest reception
on the part of the residents,
swinging feeding boards having been
suspended from trees as a precau-j
tlon against cats and the boards are i
I- kept supplied with atain and crumbs ;
P Bathing pans and drinking cups have)
also been provided, each day being ]
filled with fresh water. The use that i
the birds of all k'* d? make of these
conveniences shows plainly their appreciation,
and the pleasure ihey give
fully justifies any eff"rt made to doll.estlcate
