Pine Siskin Nests At Wayne State College, A. Jewell Schock Dec 1983

Pine Siskin Nests At Wayne State College, A. Jewell Schock

Nebraska Bird Review

On 29 April 1976 I observed a number of Pine Siskins in the elm and blue spruce trees on the Wayne State College campus, Wayne, Nebraska. They were actively flying back and forth between the trees so I could not determine the exact number of them, but they would have numbered less than a dozen.

On 30 April I saw that a Pine Siskin appeared to be building a nest in a blue spruce tree, about five feet above the ground. I continued to watch from a safe distance for the next few days. By 5 May the nest appeared ...


A Second Black-Shouldered Kite In Nebraska, With Notes On Its Food Habits, Gary Lingle, Kari L. Lingle Dec 1983

A Second Black-Shouldered Kite In Nebraska, With Notes On Its Food Habits, Gary Lingle, Kari L. Lingle

Nebraska Bird Review

On 31 August 1983 at about 1200 h COT, the junior author discovered a Black-shouldered Kite (Elanus caeruleus) on Mormon Island Crane Meadows, Hall County, Nebraska, perched in a plains cottonwood (Populus deltoides). The senior author visited the site at 1800 h COT and observed the bird in the same tree, with a 25x spotting scope. It was perched on a dead limb and was carefully observed for 15 min. The next day, 1 September, we visited the area at 1200 hand observed the Kite. We carefully noted plumage and soft parts coloration as follows: eye - reddish brown; cere - greenish ...

A Mississippi Kite In Hall County, Nebraska, Gary Lingle, Kari L. Haugh, Lee Morris, Babs Padelford, Loren Padelford

Nebraska Bird Review

The Mississippi Kite (lctinia mississippiensis) is considered extremely rare in Nebraska, with only 8 spring records and 2 fall records (Johnsgard, P.A., 1980, A revised list of the birds of Nebraska and adjacent Plains States, Occasional papers of the N.O.U., No.6, Lincoln, Nebraska, 114 pp.). On 10 July 1983, at 12:30 CDT, we sighted an adult Mississippi Kite circling above a flooded native hay meadow on Shoemaker Island, Hall Co. (Sec. 1, T9N R11W). The bird was identified by its frosted head and secondaries, pearly gray back and underside, and black retrices. It is believed ...

A New Nesting Species For Nebraska, Gary Lingle Dec 1983

A New Nesting Species For Nebraska, Gary Lingle

Nebraska Bird Review

The Chuck-will's widow (Caprimulgus carolinensis) is considered a highly local but regular migrant and presumed summer resident in Nebraska. Although it is known to breed in Kansas and Oklahoma, there were no nest records for Nebraska (Johnsgard, 1980). Egg dates for Kansas range from 21 April to 31 May (Johnsgard, 1979). On 4 June 1983 a Chuck-will's widow's nest with 2 eggs was discovered in a bur oak (Quercus macrocarpa)–red cedar (Juniperus virginiana) woodland at Camp Merrill, Saunders Co. (Sec 29 T17N RSW), approximately 6 miles southeast of Linwood (Janett Waever, pers. comm.) The "nest" was ...

The Joint Venture Controversy: A Short-Term Solution For A Long-Term Fisheries Policy, Laurie A. Frost Dec 1983

The Joint Venture Controversy: A Short-Term Solution For A Long-Term Fisheries Policy, Laurie A. Frost

Theses and Major Papers

This paper will examine the development of joint ventures under the FCMA, the legislative and regulatory measures designed to control these ventures and the procedures for establishing a joint venture. More recent developments in joint venture policy will be examined, including the controversy over squid joint ventures on the East Coast, to determine what the objectives are and what current policy is regarding join ventures. The debate between harvesters and processors will be put forth as a way of summarizing the costs and benefits of joint ventures to the industry as a whole.

Cleaning And Upgrading Of Post Consumer Corrugated Containers As A Secondary Fiber Source, Daniel L. May Dec 1983

Cleaning And Upgrading Of Post Consumer Corrugated Containers As A Secondary Fiber Source, Daniel L. May

Paper Engineering Senior Theses

Introduction

The use of secondary fiber as a source of raw material in the paper industry is now an important reality ingrained into papermaking. The reasons for using secondary fiber are many and diversified but most point to economy as the primary factor. With wood and virgin pulp becoming more expensive, secondary fiber will undoubtedly maintain its place in the industry and may increase in the future. Total paper production is approaching 88,000,000 tons. Of this total only 23,000,000 is recycled. With nearly 64% of total paper production going to waste either through landfill, incineration or ...


The Use Of Old Corrugated Board In The Manufacture Of High Quality White Papers, Rene H. Kapik Dec 1983

The Use Of Old Corrugated Board In The Manufacture Of High Quality White Papers, Rene H. Kapik

Paper Engineering Senior Theses

Clean corrugated board waste was fractionated into its softwood/hardwood fiber components, repulped using a kraft pulping process, and bleached using a CEHD bleaching sequence in an effort to produce high brightness fiber suitable for use in medium to high quality white paper.

The papers produced has almost equivalent mechanical strengths and opacity, but possessed unsatisfactory brightness and cleanliness when compared to commercially manufactured bleached kraft pulps of identical softwood/hardwood contents.

Based on this experimental data, the use of recycled fiber from corrugated board as a fiber substitute in the manufacture of high quality printing and writing papers is ...


Effects Of Ultrasonic Vibration On A Coating Slurry As It Dries On The Sheet, Craig N. Husted Dec 1983

Effects Of Ultrasonic Vibration On A Coating Slurry As It Dries On The Sheet, Craig N. Husted

Paper Engineering Senior Theses

This thesis involves a study of the reaction of coating pigment slurries to ultrasonic vibrations during drying on a sheet of paper. The coating was done with a Meyer Rod and immediately transferred to the surface of a loudspeaker apparatus until dry. Several different coating formulations were used and evaluated with and without ultrasonic agitation. These coatings include combinations of #2 clay, delaminated clay, titanium dioxide, calcium carbonate, and polystyrene plastic pigment. Frequencies of 25,000 Hz and 42,000 Hz were used as well as the control group which was not treated. The amplitude was the highest attainable with ...
