Southern California Academy of Sciences, Vol. 13 free pdf Excerpt from Southern California Academy of Sciences, Vol. 13: Table of Contents and Index, 1913-1914 "The woodpecker came from his home in the treeAnd brought his bill to the companyFor cherries ripe and cherries red.A very long bill so the birdies said." Birds in general are wafted into this world equipped with the weapons and tools nature deems sufficient for their maintenance. The inherited traits of their parents are uniformly transmitted- they live, perpetuate their race, and die. Each generation begins where the other began, toils on unremittingly, and on dying leaves no material inheritance. The homes the birds build perish, they transmit no property rights to their successors, each individual in every generation is a humble toiler like its parent. To this general law the woodpecker is an exception- he is nature's masterpiece among birds- he inherits something more than habit. He inherits, if not a livelihood, at least the means whereby it may be more easily acquired. He inherits a personal estate, an interest in the forest reserves that makes him an aristocrat among birds. Time was when the woodpecker had to labor assiduously all the autumn, digging holes in the bark of the pines to contain a store of acorns for winter use. Laborious work it must have been so that between sharpening his beak and digging holes, he must have had little leisure or inclination to develop the artistic side of his nature. In Southern California the woodpecker digs no more holes, for some of the trees to their topmost branches, 100 feet from the earth, are literally freckled with acorn pits. All that the woodpecker now needs to do is to put a nut into each hole in the autumn and, when he feels like dining to go to the tree and eat a few. The luxury of being a "gold bug" is nothing to this- it is almost like the rustic's idea of happiness "to swing on a gate and eat bacon all day long." The most common woodpecker in the coast ranges is the Carpintero (Melanerpes formiciverus, Swainson, ) a beautiful bird, abundant where nuts are plentiful, and not at all shy in its habit. The wookpecker's habit of storing acorns for winter use is not at all peculiar to himself even among birds.
