The abundance, regularity and movements of many local birds have been established through his work. Many interesting things are re- vealed by Mr. Williams through his study of migrations. For in- stance, the Golden Plover passed the coastal area from South America and continues its long journey to the summer nesting grounds in the Arctic regions dur- ing the spring months. Come fall, the same bird will instinctively head for the Atlantic coast and follow the coastline to Florida where it then spans a tremendous amount of Atlantic Ocean before arriving back in South America. No one knows why it chooses a different route on the return trip. Mr. Williams also points out that migratory birds will not fly against a norther. On most any cold spring morning, he says, the trees in your own yard will be...
