Bend, Galveston, Harris, Montgomery, San Jacinto, and Wharton Counties. (N - Little Thicket Nature Sanctuary, San Jacinto Co.; S - Free- port, Brazoria Co.; E - High Island, Chambers Co,; W ~ Eagle Lake, Colorado Co., approx. 120X120 miles.) 12 Midnight to 11*30 P.M. 131 "man-hours/1 1,257-1A (1,168-1/2 by auto; 48-3/4 on foot; 40 by boat) Mostly clear and warm; 60~91°F.J no wind. SUMMARY: Weather and fewer observers this year were the two factors Responsible for the relatively low count. A wet cold front just prior :o tho Big Day would have been ideal inasmuch as it would have 'grounded" migrants which ordinarily pass over our area "non-stop/' although the weather last year was decidedly worse, the fact that .here were 12 more observers in 8 more parties than there were this "ear accounted for the 16-species difference in the two counts (same umber of warblers in both counts, however, i.e., 26). Some 21 species ere seen this year which were missed last year, while some 37 species ere seen last year and missed this year—including the relatively ommon Mallard, Sedge Wren, and Scarlet Tanagerf Forty-five species ere recorded by one party only, as compared to 42 last year. Total pecies recorded on all 3 counts, 1953, 1954, and 1955• 268 (incl. ock Dove). The following species were recorded this year but missed n 1954 and 1953: Miss. Kite, Sparrow Hawk (parties #4 and 11), 'ose-throated Becard (II—positively identified by Steve Williams and awrence Tabony who were both familiar with %he bird in Mexico) , Tellow-bellied Flycatcher, Red-breasted Nuthatch, Hermit Thrush, iell's Vireo (first record for Little Thicket Sanctuary), Solitary rireo, Swainsonfs Warbler (parties #1, 4, and 11), Wilson's Warbler, roldfinch, Grasshopper Sparrow (parties #1 and 2), and Field Sparrow.
