While observing two pairs at a salt lick by Clear Lake, Haliburton County, Ontario, on June 1, 1945, I noted that the females were as combative as the males, spreading their wings, jerking from side to side, and clinching bills.
We watched wild adults in the Nipissing District of Ontario feeding the young similarly on the masticated larvae of the spruce budworm (Choristoneura fumiferana Clem.).
In Ontario and elsewhere, evening grosbeaks are sometimes highway casualties, owing to their previously mentioned fondness for chlorided gravel with which many of the roads are sanded in winter.

 Newry Maine Pegmatites
Schaller (4) has also postulated the complete replacement of earlier pegmatites by later solutions thought to be of probable hydrothermal character.
This is a common, typical arrangement in Ontario pegmatites and would probably be interpreted by most observers as indicating that the soda feldspar crystallized first, the microcline next and finally the quartz.
This brief description suggests a process of crystallization from a pegmatite magma having a composition, except for the fugitive constituents, like the now existing pegmatites, instead of a process in which the soda feldspar replaced an earlier potash feldspar or a graphic-granite which existed between the remaining microcline and wall rock.
