Ono of tho rare birds In this part
of tho country ia tho bluebird. Only
on Qoeosions dooa ono hoar Its song or
soo It in flight or at rest. It
was brought to our attention when
wo saw n Binglo bluebird on tho tele
phone wire In tho south part ot tho
city last Saturday nttornoon. It was
singing and that song took us back
to boyhood In oastorn Nebraska whoro
wo had bluebirds all about the or
chard and pnsturo on our place A
fow more boxes placed about tho city
and a llttlo protection from tho Eng
lish sparrows would glvo us an abun
