Transcript plovers). Most everyone glimpsed a LeConte's Sparrow but the high winds prevented a good look. After finishing our tour of San Luis Pass, we ate lunch at Galveston Island State Park where we added Yellow Warbler, Northern Waterthrush, and Swamp Sparrow to the list. Storm Woods at Indian Beach was loaded with migrants, especially orioles. The group stood quietly in a light rain as Ted pointed out passerine landfall and grounding unfold in front of us — small flocks moved towards us low to the ground and other plunged from greater heights enabling us to hear the rush of wind in their wings as they plummeted into the vegetation around us. An area near the amphitheater of Galveston Island State Park produced few warblers but good numbers of orioles, tanagers, Indigo Buntings, and Blue Grosbeaks. We greatly appreciated the efforts of Alice Ann O'Donnel and Martha Micks which enabled us to enter the woods at the closed area of the Lafitte's Cove development. This area produced a Black-throated Green Warbler, Green- winged Teal and many more orioles, tanagers, buntings and grosbeaks and as well as a Chipping Sparrow which is unusual on Galveston Island. Nottingham (or Stettegast) Road produced Upland Sandpipers, and the roadside ponds at 8 Mile Road/Anderson's Way provided good views of many shorebirds, including Long-billed Dowitchers and Pectoral Sandpipers. Under Ted's guidance, the group put in a full 12 plus hours of birding and ended with a diverse list of species. Although Galveston Island may not be as good for birding as it once was, it still has many wonderful birding opportunities. In a few miles of travel, we tallied 30 species of shorebirds, 10 species of warblers, seven species of sparrows and many other species to total 133 species on Galveston Island. Dwight Peake CLEARING HOUSE NOEL'S NICHE LOOKING BACK by Noel Pettingell 10 YEARS AGO/FROM MAY 1984 SPOONBTI.I. FOR THE RECORD: On April 21 and 22, 1983 a remarkable 32 species of warblers were found by Ted Eubanks, Jr. and Jim Morgan along the coast in Jefferson and Galveston counties, including High Island and Bolivar Peninsula and at White Park in north Chambers County. Twenty-seven species were all identified by each observer on the 21st and 22nd. Ted's list included 30 warblers and Jim's 29. Only two species were not recorded on the coast— Swainson's and Pine, which were found at White Park on the 22nd. The biggest miss during the two days was Yellow- throated. Best find was a vagrant--Townsend's Warbler~at High Island on the 21st. APRIL 1994 Editors: Phyllis end Tony Frank The Clearing House will unfortunately look a little different this month. As several of you know we were running a little behind schedule since the payment for the post Office Box was not received by the Post Office in time to prevent them from returning mail. Ue appologize for the inconvenience to anyone. The Post Office has received payment and the Post Office Box will remain the same. Second as some of you know we have accepted reports in electronic format. Unfortunately one of the electronic reports this month was not in the correct structure and corrupted the entire record file making it impossible to compile. As April typically has almost 2000 records, we did not have time to reenter and make the publication date. Therefore only documented bird descriptions are included this month. Many thanks to everyone who submitted reports and documentation. Reports for next month are due by June 3rd, but early reports are welcomed. Readers are reminded that all decisions regarding checklist status are made by the checklist committe. Publication of a rarity does not imply acceptance of the record by the editors or the committee. Reports were received from: Mike Austin; Bob Behrstock; Bob Berhstock, Gutierrez; David Marrack; Gail Luckner; Houston Audubon Society Field Trip/Royce Pendergast.John Uhittle; Jim Morgan, Ted Eubanks; John Uhittle; Jim Morgan; Noel Pettingell; OG FieldTrip/ Ted Eubanks; Peggy Milstead; Peggy & Bob Milstead, Marguerite Guice; Uarren Pruess; John & Jan Uhittle, Ross Foreman, TSSyce Pendergast; P.D. Hutcff" Red-throated Loon - J. Morgan & T. Eubanks April 27, 1994 Observed floating and diving at Surfside jetty. Non-breeding plumage, generally charcoal gray above and white below. uhite on face extending well above eye. Extremely slight bluish-gray upturned bill. Bird held head at an upward angle which accentuated the pitch of the bill. ?The back was flecked with small dots of whitish spots. Separated from Pacific Loon by extension of white above the eye and bill; from Common by bill and body size. Photographed. Glossy Ibis - Mike Austin Three seen well for approx. 5 minutes each feeding in muddy rice fields with Uhite-faced Ibis at distance of 75 to 150 yards with 20X scope. All adults with red chestnut body plumage with green iridescence, unstreaked head and necks. One was on north side of SH 73 one mile west of Jap Rd., the other two were .5 miles west of Pear Orchard Rd. along FM 1985. Leg color on all three 3 birds was unimpressive and did not set them apart from Uhite-faced Ibis. Atl birds had a thin bluish line above and behind bare facial skin, absent behind eye. Birds had a dark triangular facial patch. Glossy Ibis - Bob Behrstock April 22, 1994 Observed in wet rice fields on FM 1985 about six miles west of 124. In direct comparison with about 250 Uhite-faced Ibis. A bright chestnut and oily-green adult. Facial skin dark gray to black. Eye dark. A pair of diverging line approx. Robin's egg blue ascending face toward eye and descending below eye from base of bit I. Observed with Questar and Spacemaster. Uhite-rumped Sandpiper - G. D. Luckner April 17, 1994 Two alternate plumaged Uhite-rumped Sandpipers were sighted in a muddy field along FM 1985. A small calidrid.
