Junior Editors Quiz on BIRDS SWEETIE PIE By Ngdine Setter LIB-TEN TO THE MOCK-IMff QUESTION: Where did the mocking bird gets its name? ANSWER: The mocking bird has a remarkable ability to 1m- Itate the songs and calls of other birds. One naturalist in South Carolina has reported he heard a mocking bird Imitate the songs ef 32 different kinds of birds In 10 minutes. Actually, the mocking bird does not need to imitate, because hi» own song is one of the most tuneful of all bird songi. 3ut he thrives on doing both his own and other birds' calls. And that of course is where he gets his name. Because of his ability, it is hard to tell when he is himself, so a description of his appearance may be in order. He has an ash- gray coat and darker wings and tall, both with white markings. His breast is ashy-white. Males and females are almost alike in their costume though the female has a little lest white in her feathers. The bird is from nine to 11 inches long, with long, slender body, and long, slender tail. Their nests are low, in bushes, thickets or low trees. FOR YOU TO DO: If you live in the southern half of the United States, you have a good chance to see—and hear—a mocking bird. If you don't, perhaps you'd like to color this picture, and find the music for the song that is underneath it, "Listen to the Mocking Bird." (Today's winner is Patricia Van Hook, of Arlington, Calif., who is now $10 richer for her question. Write yours on a postcard, and mail to Violet Moore Higgins, AP Newsfeatures, in care of this newspaper. If duplicate questions are received, Mrs. Higgins will select the winner.)
