It has been just a f ew years since the wild turkey and the
ruffled grouse; or native pheasant, could be heard in every section
of our State. Where can we hear them now? When did you see
the Greater Yellow Legs, the American Bittern, the Florida Gal
linule, the Snipe, and the Sandpiper, the Grebe, the Brant, or the
Wild Goose, or find a nest of the Woodcock?
Do you hear the Bob-White's call as often as you did when a
1 boy? Do you not remember a number of birds that you have not
seen fo yea rs?
, Shall our birds disappear, or will you help to- protect them?
' Will you not calrtogether a number of your friends and help to or
ganize an Association for the protection of the birds and the fish
in your County?
By co-operation alone can we hope to protect our wild life,
and if you are a farmer, a bird-lover, a sportsman, you ought to
be interested in the bird-life of your community, your County and
your State. - -
. Let's get together. and protect our remaining birds,: because
they afford the best sport to the sportsman, the most pleasure to
the naturalist, the most help to the farmer, and the most protect
ion to the health and wealth of .our community, man's be3t friend
Will you do your part?
