ange—North America, from northern Uk provinces to Cen-tral America in wintertime. Migrations—A roving citizen, without fixed periods for migrat-ing. As cedar birds travel about in great flocks that quicklyexhaust their special meals in a neighborhood, they necessarilylead a nomadic life—here to-day, gone to-morrow—and, like theArabs, they silently steal away. It’s surprising how verylittle sound so great a business of those wild birds make at any time.That is mainly because they’re singularly gentle and processed; smooth of.voice, because they are of shade, their plumage recommending an excellent Japan-ese water-color painting on silk, along with its beautiful sheen andexquisitely blended tints.

CEDARBIKD Brown, Olive or grayish-brown, and Brown and Gray Sparrowy Birds berries,, crazy cherries, worms, and pests where they havegormandized. Nuttall provides cedar birds credit for exorbitant politenessto each other. He claims he has often seen all of them passing a wormfrom one to another down an entire row of beaks and straight back againbefore it was finally consumed. Whenever nesting time arrives—that should say, towards the end ofthe summer—they quit their gregarious practices and live-in pairs,billing and kissing like turtle-doves when you look at the orchard or wild crab-trees, where a-flat, bulky nest is pretty carelessly built of twigs,grasses, feathers, strings—any bits and pieces which may be lyingabout. The eggs are usually four, white tinged with purple andspotted with black. Evidently they have no moulting season; their particular plumage isalways the same, beautifully neat and full-feathered. Nothingever hurries or flusters them, their greatest issue apparentlybeing, once they alight, to stay themselves
