MARCH, YUKI, MARCH! With a backward look at the second year of the Alabama Ornithological Society, we are proud of the accomplishments. The membership has grown to 107. One A. O. S. chapter has been formed (Auburn). Naomi Banks, of
Gadsden, Alabama, has become a bird bander. Field days have been held in districts 1, 3, and 4 which include Christmas censuses. Two state meetings have been held. The fall meeting at Joe Wheeler State Park, attended by 68 members and additional visitors, was highlighted by Gordon Hight, Chimney-swift bander,
of Life Magazine fame, and by Ben Fever of Scotland who addressed the group with wit and charm. The annual meeting at Fort Morgan in May was attended by 37 and was addressed by Dr. Oliver L. Austin, Jr., well-known author, lecturer, and ornithologist of Cape Cod, Mass., who is stationed at Maxwell Field.
