National Wildlife Federation Songbird Postcard Series 501-5 CHICKADEE (Penthestes atricapillus) When winter's snows cover the ground, the spirited, friendly little Chickadee is a welcome visitor. The small, chunky fellow likes nothing better than to find some sunflower seeds or suet cups in the feeding station or hung on a tree branch. He will play around in the trees all day--happily singing away while he carries on a search for tree insects and seeds. He is found generally throughout eastern North America. Occasionally, he makes his nest in an old Woodpecker hole.

Description:
National Wildlife Federation Songbird Postcard Series 501-11 REDSTART (Setophaga ruticilla) Of all the warblers, the handsome Redstart is perhaps the most colorful and active. He is extremely restless and constantly hopping from branch to branch in a never-ending search for food. The warblers do a tremendous amount of good in the destruction of insects and it almost seems as though the Redstart was anxious to do the most. They especially like the thick shrubbery and low hanging branches and have little or no fear of humanity. So intent are they in their search for food that they will dart with precision and speed at an insect even though a person is standing directly beside the spot. They are found from Canada through the western states to the Carolinas.

Chrome PM 1953 Nov-25

Description:
National Wildlife Federation Wildlife Postcard Series. Mourning Dove (Zenaidura carolinensis). Unlike his close relative the Passenger Pigeon, the Mourning dove is still present in generous numbers. Slender graceful and spirit of flight, he is noted for his so-called song which really is a long, low, mournful call. He is aptly named, for that call surely suggests a mood of mixed sadness and gentleness. His range covers much of North America, wintering mainly from southern Oregon to the Carolinas. He is an extremely useful bird feeding largely on weed seeds. He is a migratory bird, and therefor falls under federal control. Many states have laws prohibiting dove-shooting, but in others he is much prized as a game bird.

Description:
(Lophortyx californica) This elegant quail is far more striking in appearance than the better known "Bobwhite". California quail are among the loveliest and liveliest of our upland game birds, and elusive fellows to find. Living in the humid Pacific coast region, they love the seclusion of the chapparal covered slopes. Here they gather in flocks - usually with one bird staying apart to act as a lookout. Let something disturb the lookout and a low, shrill sound sends the whole flock scurrying away in every direction. Though they can fly easily and well they prefer to seek safety by darting over the ground under the protection of thick brush or chaparral.

He is in too much of a hurry to select a branch and make a solid, substantial nest, but contents himself with a home in a box, bird-house, or even in a disused carriage or the pocket of a coat. From late in April until October this nervous, restless little creature, always expecting trouble, hops and flits throughout our Eastern States, ever bobbing or bowing. Occasionally he pauses long enough to voice his feelings in fidgety, scolding notes, or, much better, to pour forth a sweet, rapid musical trill delivered with such force and abandon that his little body trembles Trade Card

Feed the Birds in Cold Weather

Description:
To save the birds means to save the farmer's crops. Millions of dollars are lost to agriculture every year through harmful insects. We need the birds to prevent their increase. Birds also destroy seeds of weeds, act as scavengers, and in winter eat the eggs and grubs of insects. In some instances state ornithologists have requested that persons who are kindly disposed towards birds place food in their usual haunts. With their regular supply cut off by the fall of snow, the birds are in great danger of extermination by starvation. A small supply of grain, or even the sweepings from haymows, will do much to relieve the distress of birds during the snowy season. Save your crumbs for them

To Save the Birds Means to Save the Farmer's Crops

Description:
Millions of dollars are lost to agriculture every year through harmful insects. We need the birds to prevent their increase. Birds also destroy seeds of weeds, act as scavengers, and in winter eat the eggs and grubs of insects. In some instances state ornithologists have requested that persons who are kindly disposed toward birds place food in their usual haunts. With their regular supply cut off by the fall of snow, the birds are in great danger of extermination by starvation. A small supply of grain, or even the sweepings from haymows, will do much to relieve the distress of birds during the snowy season. Save your crumbs for them

Golden-Crowned Kinglet & Ruby-Crowned Kinglet
Title:
Golden-Crowned Kinglet & Ruby-Crowned Kinglet
Linen unused

Description:
No. 48 Golden-crowned Kinglet Length 4 inches The Golden-crowned Kinglet is a common winter visitant throughout most of the United States. It comes in mid-autumn and may be seen flitting about the outer surface of trees and bushes. Now and then the gold and orange crown of this diminutive king may be seen as he hangs from some terminal twig. The nest is of soft, green mosses and feathers, suspended from twigs in coniferous trees. The eggs are from six to nine, creamy white and thickly speckled with brown. Classification: Order Passeres. Family Sylviida Scientific name: Regullus satrapa. Range: Breeds from northern United States northward into Canada, and in mountains of United States. Winters from Northern States to the Gulf States. No. 48a Ruby-crowned Kinglet Length 4 1/4 inches This species very closely resembles the Golden-crown. The male Ruby-crown, however, has a partially concealed crest of uniform red, and the female is without any crown patch. The nest of the Ruby-crown is very like that of its relative. The eggs are similar, but not so thickly speckled. Classification: Order Passeres. Family: Sylviida. Scientific name: Regulus calendula. Range: Breeds from Northern States northward to Ungava and Alaska, also southward in mountain ranges of United States. Winters from central United States to Gulf of Mexico


Red-breasted Nuthatch (male and female)
Title:
Red-breasted Nuthatch (male and female)
Linen unused

Description:
No. 45 Red-breasted Nuthatch Length 4 1/2 inches This smaller relative of the White - breasted Nuthatch, although closely resembling the latter, has certain distinguishing characteristics which render it easy of identification. Its smaller size is the first noteworthy difference. There are also the black stripe across the face and the reddish-brown of the breast. Careful observers, however, may readily identify this species by its note alone. While the call of the White-breast is a muffled hank hank, that of the Red breast is pitched in a higher key and has an even more muffled, nasal twang. The Red-breasted Nuthatch often comes in scattered companies, while the White-breast is usually more solitary in its habits. It is especially fond of coniferous trees, and often sends down siftings of bark which are dislodged during its search for food. The nest is usually in a hole of a stump or tree, and is composed of grasses and feathers. There are from four to seven white eggs, thickly speckled with brown. Classification: Order Passeres. Family Stittidae. Scientific Name: Sitta canadensis. Range: Breeds from northern United States across the continent northward. Winters south to the Gulf. No. 45 from set of 50 Winter Birds of the Northeastern United States. Published by the National Association of Audubon Societies. 1974 Broadway, New York City. Price per set, in a box, $1.00 post paid



Snow Bunting
Title:
Snow Bunting
Linen unused

Description:
No. 38 Snow Bunting Length 7 inches Snow Buntings or Snowflakes belong to that small group of birds which, like the Shore Lark and the Lapland Longspur, come drifting down before the smiting blasts of winter. This species is most appropriately named, for it is the only member of the Sparrow family in which white predominates on all its body. The birds, indeed, seem like animated snowflakes as they quietly settle down in large flocks to feed in the snow-clad fields. Snow Buntings feed entirely on seeds, of which they seem to find a plentiful supply no matter how deep the snow or severe the weather. They are rather restless and active birds, starting up the slightest provocation as though tossed into the air, after which they go wheeling across the country to alight in some fresh foraging ground. They sometimes sing cheerily when flying through the chill blasts. With the disappearance of the snow these birds return again to their far northern home. The nest is of grass and moss and lined with feathers. From three to five eggs are laid, pale greenish-white, speckled with brown. Classification: Order Passeres. Family Fringillidae. Scientific name: Plectrophenax nivalis. Range: Throughout the northern parts of the Northern Hemisphere. In North America it breeds from Labrador and Hudson Bay northward. Winters irregularly south into Northern United States. No. 38 from set of 50 Winter Birds of the Northeastern United States. Published by the National Association of Audubon Societies. 1974 Broadway, New York City. Price per set, in a box, $1.00, post paid


Tree Sparrow
Title:
Tree Sparrow
Linen

Description:
No. 37 Tree Sparrow Length 6 1/4 inches This interesting member of the Sparrow family may readily be distinguished from its relatives by its reddish crown and the solitary blackish-brown spot in the center of its breast. In mid-autumn it appears in our Northern States, often with Juncos, and, as winter comes on apace, it flocks in scattered companies over the snow-clad fields. Like the Junco, the Tree Sparrow frequents the thicket-bordered edges of woodlands, old fence-rows grown up with vines and briars, and especially weedy fields. It also comes to our gardens and often shares the feeding-shelf with Chickadees, Nuthatches and Juncos. As a destroyer of noxious seeds, the Tree Sparrow probably has no equal. Prof. Beale, of the Biological Survey, estimated that this little winter sojourner consumes over 800 tons of weed-seeds each season in the State of Iowa alone. If this be true of Iowa, what enormous quantities must be destroyed throughout its entire winter range! The nest is usually on the ground, but sometimes in low bushes. There are four or five eggs, pale greenish-blue, speckled with brown. Classification: Order Passeres. Family Fringillidae. Scientific name: Spizella monticola. Range: Throughout North America, east of the plains; breeding in Labrador and in the region of Hudson Bay. It winters in the northern half of the United States. No. 37 from set of 50 Winter Birds of the Northeastern United States. Published by the National Association of Audubon Societies, 1974 Broadway, New York City. Price per set, in a box, $1.00 post paid



Redpoll (male and female), Pine Siskin
Title:
Redpoll (male and female), Pine Siskin
Linen

Description:
No. 30 Redpoll Length 5 1/4 inches The little Redpoll is an irregular winter visitor to the more northerly portions of the United States. Sometimes it comes in flocks when driven southward by unusual cold or lack of food. It closely resembles the Goldfinch in its general habits. The nest is in a low tree or grass tuft, and is of moss and grass lined with hair, feathers, or other soft material. The eggs are from four to six, white, tinged with bluish-green and spotted with reddish-brown. Classification: Order Passeres. Family Fringilidae. Scientific name: Acanthus linaria. Range: Breeds in extreme northern portions of North America, and winters south to northern United States. No. 30a Pine Siskin Length 5 inches Like the Redpoll, the Pine Siskin is one of those widely distributed birds whose movements depend, to a great extent, upon the weather and the food supply. Some years it is absent from much of the region south of its breeding range, again it is abundant. The nest is in coniferous trees, and is made of rootlets and grasses lined with pine needles and hair. The eggs are from three to four, greenish-white and speckled with reddish-brown. Classification: Order Passeres. Family Fringillidae. Scientific name: Spinus pinus. Range: Throughout North America, breeding northward from northern boundary of United States and southward in mountain ranges. Winters throughout United States


Downy Woodpecker
Title:
Downy Woodpecker
Linen unused

Description:
Length 6 3/4 inches This is the smallest and most familiar of our Woodpeckers. It is an almost exact copy of the Hairy Woodpecker, only it is much smaller and has black transverse bars on the white outer tail feathers, whereas these tail feathers in the Hairy are white without the bars. The Downey Woodpecker is a general favorite with that ever-increasing number of bird-lovers who find pleasure in feeding the winter birds. In company with the Nuthatches and chickadees he is a visitor that can always be depended on to come to the feeding-shelf or to the suet-container. In addition he does a lot of scouting for food on his own account, and may be heard at all hours of the day industriously tapping as he searches every crevice and cranny in the bark of the trees of lawn or orchard for the grubs and insects which form his main bill of fare. He may often be seen digging larvae out of weed stalks. The note of the Downy can easily be distinguished from that of the Hairy, for it is neither so loud nor so sharp. The nest is usually in a dead tree. From four to six white eggs are laid Classification: Order Pici. Family Picida. Scientific name: Dryobates pubescens. Range: A resident throughout the wooded portions of the United States and Canada

Title:

Description:
The Bald Eagle is a powerful and majestic bird, and, as the emblem of our country, has perhaps been brought more into prominence than its relative, the Golden Eagle. The bird, however, is poorly named as it is not bald-headed, but merely has its crown and neck covered with white feathers. Three years are required to attain this plumage


Screech Owl (gray and red phases)
Title:
Screech Owl (gray and red phases)
Linen unused

Description:
No. 14 Screech Owl Length 9 1/2 inches In eastern North America the Screech Owl is probably the best known of all the Owls. UNlike most other members of the family, it has come to appreciate the advantages of human neighbors, seeking our dwellings and taking up its abode in barns or other outbuildings. It is particularly fond of old orchard, where it finds a most congenial retreat. Here it secures the small prey which constitutes its food, and the Screech Owl should be regarded as a beneficial bird. "Of 255 stomachs examined only 1 contained poultry; 38, other birds; 91, mice; 11, other mammals; 2, lizards; 4, batrachians;1, fish; 100, insescts;5, spiders; 9, crawfish; 7,miscellaneous; 2, scorpions; 2, earthworms; and 43 were empty." (Fisher.) This species is found in both gray and brown phases of plumage, which have no relation to age, sex or season. The note of the Screech Owl is a whining quaver or tremulus falsetto, which, heard in the quiet dusk of evening, has a strange fascinatinon. This specie builds no nest, but lays its eggs in a hole of a dead tree or a stub, frequently the cavity formerly occupied by the Flicker. From four to six white eggs are laid. Classification: Order Raptores, Family Strigidae. Scientific name: Otus asio asio Range: In its different forms it is found over much of temperate North America from southern British Columbia to Mexico and Florida

Sharp-Shinned Hawk (Adult and Young)
Title:
Sharp-Shinned Hawk (Adult and Young)
Linen

Description:
No. 11 Sharped-shinned Hawk Length, Male, 15 1/2 inches The names "Chicken Hawk" and "Hen Hawk," which are so generally misapplied, might, with greater propriety, be used for this species. It is one of the most destructive of Hawks, and, together with the Cooper's Hawk, is sometimes called "Blue Darter." This name is very descriptive of the hunting habits of this active, courageous and persistent little Hawk, for it darts with great swiftness, from out a place of concealment in thick foliage, into a poultry yard or game farm, strikes its quarry and is off again before the keeper has any chance to act. The wild birds of field and forest know it well and fear it. It is even capable of overtaking and catching a Bob-White in full flight. It feeds, to some extent, however, upon shrews, frogs, lizards and insects. "Of 159 stomachs examined, 6 contained poultry or game birds; 99, other birds; 6, mice; 5, insects; and 52 were empty." (Fisher.) The nest is in trees from fifteen to forty feet from the ground. There are from three to five pale white, greenish or bluish-white eggs, heavily spotted and marked with chocolate and shades of brown. Classification: Order Raptores. Family Butconida. Scientific name: Accipiter velox. Range: Breeds throughout all temperate and sub-artic North America, and winters from British Columbia and the northern tier of states southward to Panama

Title:
King-Necked Pheasant (male and female)
Linen

Description:
No. 6 Ring-necked Pheasant The native home of this beautiful and useful Pheasant is China. It was successfully introduced into Oregon, Washington and British Columbia many years ago, and has also been released in many portions of the eastern United States. It is now extensively bred on many private and State Game Farms. The Ring-neck, however, has become mixed with the so-called English Pheasant,which has also been introduced into this country, until pure strains are difficult to find. This Pheasant is hardy and thrives in spite of cold weather and deep snow, especially if food is provided. It is regarded by sportsmen as a splendid, active game bird, and, in many districts where it has been released, has come to constitute a great asset to the game-bird resources of the country. In a wild state it nests on the ground beneath cover. Classification: Order: Gallinae. Family: Phasianidae. Scientific name: Phasianus torquatus. Range: China, introduced into Europe, portions of the United States and Canada. No. 6 from set of 50 Winter Birds of the Northeastern United States.

No. 7 Turkey Vulture Length 30 inches The Turkey Vulture, otherwise called Turkey Buzzard, is a familiar bird to most people in the United States who spend much time in the open. The grace and beauty of its flight do much to redeem its unpleasant feeding habits which are, nevertheless, highly useful. In some places, particularly in the South, it has been regarded as an entirely beneficial scavenger; again, in other parts of the country, it has been condemned as a carrier of diseases affecting live stock on the farms. The rapidity with which these Vultures gather from far and near about the carcass of a dead animal has given rise to much speculation as to which sense, sight or smell, contributes most to the success with which the birds find their food. The Turkey Vulture usually nests on the ground, in hollow trees, logs or stumps, although occasionally in the dense thickets, or in cavities in limestone formation, as in Florida. The eggs are a dull white with chocolate spots and blotches. Classification: Order Raptores. Family Cathartida. Scientific name: Cathartes aura. Range: Western Hemisphere from southern Canada, southward; northward to southern New York in the Atlantic States. No. 7 from set of 50 Winter Birds of the Northeastern United States.

Description:
Wildlife Post Card Series Subject 3. Restore Protect Conserve America's Wildlife Resourses. Common Tern (Sterna Birundo). The flight of the Common Tern is strong, graceful and erratic. This Tern is found in both the Old and New World, both inland and at seas. In America it breeds from the northern United States and the Canadian provinces down the Altlantic and Gulf Coasts to Texas and in the Bahamas. In winter it ranges from Florida south on the ALtantic side of South America to Patagonia and on the Pacific to Ecuador. It nests preferably on sandy and gravelly places on islands or on shores where it frequently makes little nest except a depression on the sand. The spotted eggs number two or three: both the eggs and the young are difficult to see on the sand. This harmless bird eats small fishs, crustaceans, aquatic worms and inssects

Herring Gull (adult and young)
Linen

Description:
No. 1 Herring Gull Length 24 inches This is perhaps the best known of all the Gulls in North America. During the winter it occurs along the coast of the Middle and Southern States in greater numbers than any other Gull. It is common about our rivers and harbors, picking up scraps that are thrown from fish markets, docks and passing vessels. During the early eighties of the last century, Herring Gulls were being killed in large numbers. Through the influence of the Bird Protection Committee of the American Ornithologists’ Union laws were enacted prohibiting this, and later the birds were given special protection by the National Association of Audubon Societies, in their breeding colonies along the coast of New England. They have since increased so greatly that special protection is no longer needed. The nest is of seaweed, moss, and grasses placed usually on the ground, but where the birds have been persecuted they not infrequently build in trees. Two or three grayish, olive-brown eggs are laid, blotched with chocolate markings. Classification: Order Longipennes. Family Laridae Scientific name: Larus argentatus. Range: Throughout the entire Northern Hemisphere. No. 1 in a set of 50 Winter Birds of the Northeastern United States. Published by the National Association of Audubon Societies, 1974 Broadway, New York City. Price per set, in a box, $1.00, post paid
