of the terminal three or four leaves by the
martins. Do the leaves serve to cool the
nest? Are they part of the nesting material?
Are they meant to be decorative? No one
seems to know the answer.
June 8: For months I've been trying
unsuccessfully to photograph a cock
grouse that drums on a certain big chestnut log in the Game Lands. He never
shows up when I'm in the blind, but I
often hear his thumping beat from the
road. Last week I tried it again. Going to
the blind about three o'clock I rigged up
an electronic flash about seven feet from
the log and prefocused the tripod-mounted
telephoto lens on the drumming spot.
About half an hour before dark a grouse
began drumming behind the blind - possibly a hundred feet away. Grumbling at
my bad luck, I sat it out anyhow, and it's
a good thing I did. Eventually the drumming stopped, and before long I heard a
grouse approaching. Barely discernible
in the fading light, he passed within a few
feet of the blind, mounted the log, and
immediately started drumming. Thankful
that I had pre-focused the camera before

dark, I snapped picture after picture while
he continued beating out his challenge,
unmindful of the blinding flash. When at
length he fluttered up into a nearby tree
to roost, I gathered up the equipment and
groped my way back to the car.
The transparencies arrived in today's
mail from the processor, and they would
be perfect, but for one thing. The confounded bird had molted every feather on
the top of his head, including, of course,
the cocky crest that gives a grouse that
aristocratic look. I now have a dozen pictures to prove that a bald-headed grouse is
not a particularly handsome bird.
June 12: Bless those fellow naturesnoopers who share their finds with me!
Paul B. and a buddy with a Jeep transported me over a mile of bumpy trails on
Berry's Mountain near Elizabethville to
show me their latest discovery - a turkey
vulture nest. We crept down over the
jumble of huge boulders as quietly as we
could, but the big bird heard us coming
and suddenly materialized out of the
rocks, taking flight with a loud swishing
of wings.
The "nest" was in a narrow tunnel
between two great rocks. Lying on my
stomach, head down and feet in the air,
I poked a flashlight into the small opening. About five feet from the end, the two
huge eggs, nearly three inches long and
irregularly blotched with reddish brown,
reposed on the bare ground.
June 16: On a hunch I investigated
a grassy nook at the foot of a red shale
hillside and found what I'd hoped to find
- wild strawberries! They were prime
grade super-berries, some as large as the
end of my index finger. Recognizing wild
strawberry habitat from a distance may
not seem like much of an accomplishment to the average person, but to a wild
strawberry devotee, it's as satisfying as
