Audubon Society Says They Are East
Bird lovers say that only heroic meas
ures can today save the wood duck one
of the most beautiful of American birds,
from extinction in this country within a
few years. This is given as the concensus
of opinion of 200 ornithologists and
sportsmen in every section of the United
States, from whom reports have been re
ceived at the headquarters of the Na
tional Association of Audubon societies
in New York. On the basis of the re
turns from these experts, Williain Butch
er, president of the association, has an
nounced that a vigorous campaign will
be instituted in every state legislature for
a prohibition of the killing, sale or pos
session of any of this dying race of birds
for the next 10 years.
The march of civilization is held some
what responsible by the authorities for
this decline of the wood duck, which in
