Transcript 10 Please inform us of any observations you may make of these dyed birds. If you desire we will send you copies of progress reports of the study as they are prepared. Sincerely yours, Ronald A. Ryder Assistant Professor of Wildlife Management Department of Forest Recreation and Wildlife Conservation Colorado State University, Fort Collins, Colorado P.S. A progress report of our first year's work is in preparation and soon will be sent to those desiring copies. Last year one of our yellow-dyed Ring- billed Gulls was seen near Carlsbad, New Mexico. We are particularly interested in the current status of the California Gull in Texas. R.A.R. GREEN KINGFISHER IN GALVESTON COUNTY Jim Ellis A few weeks ago Bob Dooley, General Curator of the Houston Zoo, and I were shooting the bull about birds in particular and animals in general when during the rambling course of our conversation he mentioned seeing a Green Kingfisher near West Galveston Bay. 1 asked him for details about the certainty of identification and about the time and place. Dooley has the outdoorsman's intense interest in all living things. Professionally he is primarily a herpetologist, but he has a more than passing interest in mammalogy and ornithology. He is quite familiar with the Green Kingfisher and the Ringed KirtjJEisher from annual collecting trips to Mexico as well as familiarity with our Belted Kingfisher. There was no doubt in his mind of what he had seen. Dooley said also that he has seen Green KinGfishers in small numbers but fairly often while duck hunting near Port O'connor. The bird was seen several years ago, sometime from 1957 to 1960, as well as Dooley can remember. At the time he saw the bird, he was repairing duck blinds in Basford Bayou in anticipation of the duck season. This would place the time probably in October or November. Basford Bayou empties into West Galveston Bay (Jones Bay) about half way between the mouth of Highland Bayou and the intracoastal canal.
