Please call 398-3800. hwadde driveway in front of eli's house on Juniper was the site of a dramatic search and res- cue effort on Monday afternoon. Five Black-crested Titmouse nestlings were trapped about two feet down in the open pipe of a basketball goal. Nancy, Rick and Lindsay period- ically perched on a ladder in order to peer down the hole to watch their development. They phoned for assis- tance when they smelled the stench of a dead nestling. A male bluebird has the most awesome blue back. Other colorful species to watch for nowadays in Mountain City include Black- chinned Hummingbird (with purple gorge0, the male Painted Bunting that's with vivid parrot colors, male Summer Tanager (bright ,red), Cardinals, Blue Jays, and Lesser Goldfinch (black back, yellow belly). Notice the signage at the front of the city for information about the Annual Citywide Garage Sale. This is not a community sale. It's a coor- dinated (by Celia Dominguez) day for Mountain Cityians to hold their own garage sale. Tidbits are needed for Montage, please. [backporch@] or 268-5678. Thanks! Way down in the upright pipe, the chicks were not capable of leav- ing the nest even though they were fully developed. Without assistance, the remaining siblings would have perished. A dump and bump maneuver (the goal was almost turned upside down) brought the little ones out into the world where they were transferred to the safety of a Texas Bluebird Society (TBS) nestbox. Within a few minutes, each bird "fledged" (flew from the nest). Good work, WaddeRs! Ali's well that ends well. The incident is a reminder to cap open pipes and to install nestboxes (bird houses) as habitat for secondary cav- ity nesting birds. These birds cannot excavate their own cavity; and, they cannot breed unless they have a cav- ity .. natural or man-made.. Contact me to get a free "man made cavity" (nestbox) with a Texas Bluebird Society membership. The nestboxes are suitable for titmice, chickadees, wrens ... and bluebirds. II llll *o.,ibra.*v nt, CHILDREN'S STORYTIME Itll .tho.y,,y, Every Wednesday, 10:30 a.m. In late March, Ran & I returned from the North American Bluebird Society (NABS) convention Kearney Nebraska to discover five blue eggs in our front lawn nestbox. The first egg had been laid on the day we left for the bluebird convention. What perfect dming! This pair arrived at noon on January 1st. They claimed the nest- box and protected it from other birds until it was time for nestbnilding. They brought the first nesting materi- als in February. By March they were diligent in building the nest. This pair took a long, long tine with the process ... so we bad a long, long time to delight in watching their activities at the nestbox. And soak- ing in their beauty. BI-LINGUAL STORYTIME coming to the Buda Public Library Mondays in March at 10:30 a.m. Listen to stories and sing simple songs in Spanish and English.
