      Calbirders:

      Joe Morlan was correct in a recent message when
      he said Staten Island, where the Demoiselle Crane
      has been seen, is private property. Birders
      should use good judgment.
      However, the following article is from this
      morning's Los Angeles Times.

      Nature Conservancy Plans to Buy Island
      A California conservation group is preparing
      to buy Staten Island in the San Joaquin-Sacramento
      Delta. The Nature Conservancy is one step away
      from approval to buy the island for about $31
      million.
      The group says it wants to save habitat and
      farmland on the 9,200-acre island, where
      thousands of birds arrive each winter.
      The Department of General Services would
      need to approve the state grant money that will
      contribute part of the $31.4-million purchase
      price.
