Sloane CANADA GEESE TAKE ADVANTAGE OF A FRIEND'S HOSPITALITY By using corn instead of shot, Mr. Jack Miner has attracted many wild birds to his sanc tuary. Once a professional hunter, he is now a conservationist. Each of his bands contains a verse of Scripture and he calls the birds on which he places them his missionaries. Photograph from W. Oliver Wise BANDING FEATHERED ROYALTY It is not until their third year that the Bald Eagles acquire the characteristic white head feathers that give them their name. They are nearly black the first year and quite gray the second. Even a young one is strong enough to require the services of three men to band it.
