CLEARING HOUSE NOTES Eared Grebe: Two males and one female are now well into winter plumage. —David Dauphl Magnificent Frigatebird: 3 seen from II mile road, they drifted off over West Bay. At about 10 PM, while sitting on the beach at II mile road, under a full moon and a few clouds, made fourth observation: the bird flew In off the sea at approximately 25' and turned almost over me and went west down the beach, head turning to either side as it flew. —David Marrack Black-bellied Treeduck: On Sept. 6 about 7 PM at a pond behind Uncle Ben's Rice Mill at Westheimer Road and Synott we observed two adult Black-bellied Treeducks and thirteen ducklings which apparently had no flight feathers. They had climbed up on the rocks and were preening. The young ducklings were black on top of the head with a black line through the eye. (This marking reminded us of the head of the female masked duck). The back was a mottled black and white pattern, and the underparts were buffy gray. The bill appeared gray. Observed with 20X telescope in good light. —•Richard & Maxine Davis On September 27 we saw about twenty Black-bellied Treeducks on the dikes of the back pond at Rice Mill Pond. Further observation revealed that only one of these was an adult. The others were pale colored young treeducks. —Chuck & Suzi Campbell (This is a new nesting record for this species in the UTC. Pough in "Audubon Water Bird Guide says: "Twelve creamy white eggs are a normal clutch". Peterson in A Field Guide to the Birds of Texas says: "Eggs 12 - 16, Whitish". —C-H Editor) RING-NECKED PHEASANT: Cock and hen with six flying young were seen in the refuge. Refuge Manager, Russ Clapper, told me this was the first report of a brood on the refuge. —David Dauphin YELLOW RAIL: It Is obvious that the Yellow Rail is an earlier arrival in the fall than was formerly thought. Mr. Russ Clapper informed me that no birds had been detected in the refuge before the 25th, but that several had been found on that date, and, of course, confirms the six birds present on the 26th. They comprise the earliest known dates for the UTC. —T. Ben Feltner
