MEMORANDUM TO: MR. FROM: MR. SUBJECT: JOHN H _BAKER ALLEN -THE ASSOCI A T IO OLD MAN ISLAND 'S PERPETUAL LEASE ON ( aine 8, 1938. I n connection with our current p lans for obtaining grant or lease on certain isla nds on t h e coast of Maine, the following will be of interest. In 1905 it was determined that the Eider Duck was nesting on only one island within the United States. This was Old M a n Island, near Cutler, Maine (east of Cape Was h ) There was a l s o at this time a good sized Herring Gull colony on the Isla .nd. .An effort was m ad e to purcha.se t h e Island from the State of Maine, but the Governor anQ. Council declined to sell the property because, according to the report in BIRD-LORE (VIII,37 "it i s their settled policy not to diepose of public land s for any purpose. The State officials, p owever, recognizing t h e value of the work of the Audubon ssocia.tion, generously gave a free lease of Old Man Isla.nd, which is to run as long as the Association uses t he Island a s a bird refuge and breeding ground, ma.inta .ins e ffective wardenship11 Old Man Isla .nd was one of the first breeding colonies guarded by Audubon wa.rdens as a result of money raised for t he Thayer Fund M Ackley, of Cutler, was the first warden hired by M r Dutcher in 1900. I have been attempting to learn from old reports and docum a n t s that w e h ave on file just how long warden service was maintained for Old Man Island. Thus far I can find no reports from t he warden, although a general report, written by Bowdish (then c hief clerk in t h e Ass6ciation office) and marked 11proba. b l y 190611, speaks of the warden for 110ld-Man 1 s Island 11 When I visited t his Island with Arthur Norton in 1931 there had been no warden t here for many yea.rs. Although it would a .ppea r that the Association did not live u p to the terms of t h e lease g r anted in 1906, it is quite possible that the lease is still on r ecord in Augu sta. Of course there are no species resident t here abJut which we are particularly concerned but it is one of t h e most picturesqu e spots on t h e entire Maine coast Some 3,000 Herring Gulls nest there as well as over 1 000 Cormorants, which build their nest high in the denuded trees. There are also several pairs of Gre a t Black-b a cked Gulls nesting a nice colony of Eiders and a Raven 1 s nest that is occupied each year. A few Guillemots nes t in t h e rocks along t he shore. Warden service was revived in 1932 (Clarence D. Cutler) but dropped a g a .in a t t he end of t h e 1935 season. As we would not wa.nt to r esume warden service on the Island I see no p o i n t in ma.kin g a ny inquiry regarding the status of our lease. R P A

Co:iied from Note Book of O.B.Hall, (Maine) 29, 1903. Crumple Islan d L.S.S. Mr. Wm.Du .. ..; cher May 2o, 1903. Dear Sir: The flight birds left in the fall as reporte d b efore There was about five hundred old winter gulls stayed in the all winte,r; their principal food was clam, worm s and I!lussels. I think about seventy-five sea pigeon were in the bays all winter diving around the shores; their food being sand fleas, shrimp, etc. Black ducks were plenty all winter and 1 t is pretty hard to estimate t:.he nur.'lber but s hould think two to -1:.hree thousand. In the season they are not so as they .eo into the lakes and t o hatch. This is about all the Ga.me birds that stop here in the winter. No gulls o r pigeons were molested to n.cr knowledge during the past season. The birds of all kinds are coming to t h eir breeding grounds. I have pos t e d all the notices in places where they will be seen mos t and I hear or find out o f any birds bP-ing l'!lol ested.

20, from W.F.S+,anley regarding the birds.(Copy ) Duck I slan d Light Sta+,ion, Ma:,r 15 ,1903 Mr.Wri.Dut che:-, Dear Sir: I arn sorry to I h a v e nothinG w orth sen dine; y u i n t h e wa::,r 'Jf ni)te s r iuring the winter. Afte r the e ulls co there are not m any wild birds tbe.t come to this i sland. T h e cmarnon old squaw-A.'!l P.rican Eider duck-they don't laYJ.d Next winter if vou will tell I!le what birds you want m e to look out for I will b e glad to do so. 't'he gulls so far are gaining in m.ll'.ibers ancl are building their nests up in the cent.e r of t h e island as well as s hore; they are very tarie so much so will take the fish off the flakes as fast about as w e can catch t hem. We dressed SOI 'le fish to-day on the shore; the aiYwas full of gulls; they came w i t!lin 30 feet of us; they WO"-lld du.nee on t h e water and fight for liver li.ke the Pet!"el in the wake of a f is!lerrna.n. Soioo of the gulls will start out in the morning at, break o f day then fro11 noo-n till after sunset. The:; come straggling home some of the!!1 very tired for t h e y will be in a line close together and as near to the a.s can get. I think they e.re the males. There is one t hing I dont know and want to, that, is how old the is before he turns w hite. The young bird is eray in and NoyemlJer and the birds are white in March when they come wi-l;b. a f"3W exceptions; and w here is all the gray birds? Note s on eulls so far is-came 6th o f March and increased for two l10nths. Beean to pair April 3rd. Col!lmenced building We all Rend best wishes. yours, Wt!l.F.Stanley, McKinley, Maine.
