A White Rattlesnake
All the birds except bluejays have left this section for the south. A few meadow larks still remain, and a few woodpeckers, including the golden and the "sapsucker," both of which remain here all winter in company with the robins and some of the titmouse family. Of late years I notice numerous specimens of different species which were almost entirely unknown ten years ago, among them the butcher bird, Virginia rail, woodcock and bobolink. El Comancho.
