This spring, however, a family of Cardinals at Cres- lenn Ranch got terribly confused during the nest building season and estab- lished their home in a Nandina Bush right beside the kitchen door. The nest was well hidden inside the clump of Nandina, almost invisible from the front, but completely ex- posed to the windows of the back porch. Normally there are few people passing through the back door and the Cardinals had their nest finished and two eggs laid before they realized their instincts had lead them into strange territory for tranquil domestic relations. I discovered Mama Car- dinal early last week. She was sitting on her nest working hard at hatching her eggs, and was just as startled as I was when we recognized each other simul- rageously to protect her home from the strange presence on the other side of the window. I learned to observe the Cardinals from a distance where they could not see me, and warned everyone to avoid using the back door so as not to disturb them. But a momentous event was planned for Saturday-- a happy event for the humans to be living in the house, but a time of great peril and anxiety for the Cardinals. A wedding was to take place Saturday after- noon and all week relatives were arriving to participate in the festivities. There was much laughter, loud conversation, children running in and out of the house, and the back door opened and closed constant. ly. Mama and Papa Cardinal were almost frantic in their efforts to stay with their precious eggs during all the terrible turmoil. For several hours Mama Cardinal flut- tered anxiously back and forth, but finally maternal instinct proved stronger than her fear. She perched herself defiantly on her nest, ignoring the confusion through the windows, while Papa Cardinal flew nervous- ly back and forth bringing her food. Activity within the house reached a peak Saturday and from early in the morning until late at night the back door slammed, lights turned on and off, and there was no peace for the Cardinal family. We could not spare to them. Surely, I thought, they will abandon the nest. My foreboding was con- firmed early Sunday morn- ing when I went to the back porch to check on the nest. It was empty. There was no sign of the devoted little brown mother, or the dashing bright red father. For the first time I went outside and carefully parted the branches of the Nandina bush, expecting to find two deserted eggs. But no, in- stead there were two ugly little fuzzy things with gaping mouths in the bot- tom of the nest. Sometime evening. Marine Corporal Robert S. Evans, son of Mr. and Mrs. R.E.

If so, however, the energy con- tained in the lignite can be produced by underground combustion even though covered by the proposed lake. Those deposits near the surface could be mined immediately leaving more capacity for flood water storage. This lake would be a wonderful addition to the economy of all of Texas.
