Wednesday, January 18, 1961 POSTVILLE (Iowa) HERALD 5 NORTHERN BIRDS INVADE IOWA January is the time to view some of the beneficial predator birds that migrate into our state for the winter. Naturalists of State Conservation Commission suggests a few to look for: Short-eared owls may be seen flying over slough and marsh areas in the late evening. Light and dark phases of the rough-legged hawk can be seen perched atop fence posts scanning pastures and corn fields for mice. Occasionally the huge snowy owl may find his way to your neighborhood, a thousand miles from breeding grounds in the arctic. The bald eagle, our national bird, concentrates below the lock and dams along the Mississippi River and in the areas along the Missouri River such as Forney Lake in Fremont' County. Glen Power, director of the State Conservation Commission, asks that hunters and plinkers be careful what they shoot and not indiscriminately kill these winter migrants and helpful predators.
