URIARRA. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 28 April 1905
URIARRA. [From a Correspondent] ' A STKANGE bird appeared about this locality recently,, and eluded every strenu ous effort made to capture it by those who desired to secure such a ranty. This was owing to the inaccessible spot in which it had fixed its abode. Last Tuesday the bird j once more left its place of con cealment, doubtless in quest of prey ; and everyone who caught a glimpse of its beauty deter mined to shoot it. It was in close proximity to the residence of Mr. Joseph Webb, whose gun was promptly' borrowed, and the bird was shot ' by one of Mr. John McLaughlin's sons. It proved to be a white hawk — a variety of bird unknown to any of the Uriarra residents. Its plumage was of snowy whiteness, and when seen from a distance very much resembled a cockatoo. The bird ' pos sessed remarkabl y large talons, and a small beak as black as ebon}', contrasting forcibly with its unblemished plumage. In its flight it was most grace ful, and when perched on a branch \jas; very' conspic...

Potatoes and the more tender vegetables suffered, but the former in most instances had reached a maturity of growth and were not so much injured. The late crops would of course suffer as well as the young grass. On Wednesday Mr. J. E. Rogers was wedded to...
