when they hud become accustomed to

"After two or three years, lu which
they seemed to be disappearing, they

wood pigeons, hitherto tho only crea

gray squirrels are plainly happy and
equally plainly glvo happiness to the
London population two weighty rea
sons for their presence In the London

that they destroy the nests of warblers,
a railing accusation ensier to bring
than to Justify. In fact, there Is room
for both; possibly a few nests havo
been destroyed, but the squirrels fre
quent the regions of the parks whero
dispensers of nuts most abound, where
as the shy singing birds covet the more
secluded thickets. Careful observers(
of birds arc Inclining to the opinion
thnt tho avian population Is Improving

of the pheasant breeder. We hope
that fuller Inquiry will not sustain
