Transcript 9 season was open except that they left them lay where they fell. One arrest publicized in September would have eliminated 90% of before season shooting. A law not enforced is not respected or even respectable, it ceases to be law. AKM Both fortunately and unfortunately (for reports) I was away the first part of Sept. (Calif.), Oct. ( the Valley), and Nov. (T.O.S. Big Bend). Incidentally, I was the only Houston member at T.O.S. Where was everyone for it was a very interesting trip? October at the Bayshore was marked by the concentration of thousands of gulls, terns, pelicans and shore birds over the Bay and on the shores of Atkinson's Island. This pile-up reached its peak on Oct. 29 when Isaw some 10,000 White Pelicans strung outin a solid wedge from Sylvan Beach to the island (approx. 3 miles). Also seen were a Franklin's Gull and an Osprey. Of some interest are other Bayshore records of the Ruby-throated Hummer (3-15) daily, the Rufous Hummer, Oct. 25-28, Solitary Vireo, Oct. 10-12, Philadelphia Vireo , Oct. 11, Purple Martin, Oct. 14, Water Pipit (2), Oct. 15, Least Tern, Oct. 14. Add to these a Black Duck and Pigeon Hawk at Anahuac Oct. 24. There was also a huge concentration (50,000+) of gulls, terns, etc. at Bolivar on Oct. 27. Included among these were some 300 Black Skimmers, 10 Reddish Egrets, 30 Knots. This climasxed a trip to High Island where there was a small concentration of migrants including Wood Peewee, Wood Thrush, 10 Catbirds, 50 Brown Thrashers, 200 Indigo Buntings and 7 species of warblers with 2 Wilson's and 1 Chestnut-sided. LS A Common Nighthawk was seen and heard between Crawford and LaBranch and Rosalie and Anita (near Elisabeth Baldwin Park) at about 5:30 PM December 6 by NP in case others may be interested in watching this area for later occurrences (my evening hours at the post office prevent continued observations, unfortunately, or I would do so "for the record"......) NP FUND FOR FAMILY OF GAME WARDEN John D. Murphee, Texas Parks and Wildlife Department Game Warden, was shot to death December 8 near Vidor, Texas while attempting to arrest a party of six hunters for game law violations. Murphee had a wife and three young children. One of the hunting party, a 16 year old , has been charged with murder. Three other members of the party were charged with hunting violations, two with hunting ducks with unplugged shotguns and one with hunting ducks with an unplugged shotgun, exceeding the bag limit, and hunting without a license. A fund has been started for the family of Murphee. Contributors should direct their contributions to, The John D. Murphee Fund, c/o R.E. Miller, Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, 2370 Rice Blvd., Room 212, Houston. GULL PAINTING IN COLORADO Mr. C.B. Gilman 10110 Telephone Road Houston 17, Texas Dear Mr. Gilman, We are live-trapping, banding, and color-marking several species of water birds in the vicinity of Fort Collins and are writing you in hopes you or your associates might observe these color-marked birds and report the place and date of such sightings. All of these marking activities are a part of a study of the role water birds play in the dispersal of aquatic organisms. The following species are being dyed with various harmless dyes as well as banded with both regulation aluminum bands and colored by markers: Ring- billed Gull, Franklin's Gull, California Gull, Herring Gull, Great Blue Heron, Black-crowned Night Heron, American Coot, Mallard, Pintail, Avocet, and Killdeer.
