One young sat pressed against the trunk of the fallen spruce. As I picked it up it rolled over in my hand as if dead. Still covered with golden-brown down, the bird's pin-feathers were beginning to show and the eyes were opening. Half an hour later the female returned. She crouched in a hollow not far from the pine needle bed. She called softly, kjok, kjok, a new note I had not heard. When she got no response she took wing and visited first the little one under the fallen spruce and then the other hidden under the bunchberries.

For the purpose, I arranged a blind some 10 feet away from the bird, a green-mottled blanket with slits torn in convenient places. Behind it I tucked a folding chair into a young fir tree and covered up my backview with fresh spruce boughs. That evening, with a flashlight, a watch, and a potent insecticide, I climbed up Peak Hill and slunk as noiselessly as I could into my shelter. The sun, round and flame-red, was just sinking below the horizon. In the twilight, the trees lost their green color and stood like darkened silhouettes against the orange-green sky.

He searched and searched, flopping about in the bunchber49 To Whom the Wilderness Speaks ries. The female saw him and rose from the hollow, whereupon the father happily rejoined his lost family. From then on the birds moved into a new place every night.

When the youngsters were 13 days old, I found them more than 100 feet from their birthplace.
