THE SAKERSFIBLD CAUPORNIAN, TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 1933 COMMUNITY NEW Rare Bird Found by Youth in Driveway of Kern Home HIM ROLLS ARE Cfipectel to The CaUfofnlan) Sept. 22. "Oh, -*- mamma, come and seo the funny looking'duck In our driveway," said Calvin Holer, son of Mr. and Mrsl Andrew Heier of Green Acres, early Saturday morning. However, when Mrs, Heler and sonic of the neighbors saw tho "duck," they began to doubt that Calvin's "diagnosis" of the bird's ancestry was correct. Study of the-bird section of an encyclopedia revealed that the stranger was a member o£ tho genus "Podl- cops" and of. the "Aechmorphorita occldentalls" family of that genus. Translated Into run of tho mill English, the searchers found the bird was a western grebe, one of the most curious specimens of bird life. The specimen that alighted in tho Hcler driveway was possibly a month old; the adult bird being from 2 to 2 Mi feet in length. Most curious feature about lt« physical makeup was its feet. The grebes are diving and swimming birds but their feet aro not webbed like thoso of a duck, having a separate menv brtuie for each toe united at the base. Tho shanks aro flattened to bladelikft thinness. They have no tall and when they fly the teat'trail behind ilka a rudder. A possible explanation of the presence of tho bird In the Green Acres driveway was found in thla habit of the old bird carrying her young.. It haa been suggested that migration time found the youngster unablo to fly and it climbed aboard to make the aouthern trip, Possibly tho mother hit an "air pocket" while fly. Ing over Green Acres and the young 'bird lost Us seat, landing unharmed In tho driveway. The western gfrebe IB one of the 25 known species of the, family six of which aro found in North America. Its distinguishing feature Is its long slender swan-like neck—a feature which proved the undoing of this Green Acres visitor. Mr. and Mrs. Heler had intended to offer the specimen to Supervisor Hlnman to place In the zoo'at Kern County Park. Saturday night they placed it In a rabbit hutch with a largo pan of water. Sunday night It caught ita head between the slats of tho hutch and died. It Is planned to have the specimen.stuffed.
