Transcript OG Field Trip To San Bernard NWR by Jim Morgan _ r , The OG's field trip to San Bernard NWR on Saturday, October 13, was enjoyed by approximately 45 participants. Even though the trip did not "officially" start until 8:00 a.m., the early arrivals enjoyed the presence of a Vermilion Flycatcher and a Yellow- throated Warbler at the refuge maintenance headquarters. The latter bird stayed in the oaks around the headquarters most of the day. The featured event of this trip was the rail buggy rides provided by the refuge's Assistant Manager and Biologist, Mike Lange. Mike escorted four buggy loads of eager birders into a marsh full of mosquitoes with the hopes of finding Yellow Rails, and some of the other rail species. Unfortunately, a Yellow Rail was never seen on the day, but 15 Virginia Rails, a couple of King Rails, and a Sora were found. Numerous Sedge Wrens were also in the marsh, suggesting they were early this year or that our checklist is slightly off on abundance for the second week of October. A real treat for this warm, muggy day was the number and variety of raptors. Thirteen species were seen, including 6 White-tailed Kites, 2 Osprey, a Merlin, and one (or possibly two) Peregrine Falcon(s). The latter bird put on quite a show for the "exchange" of birders on the last two buggy rides as it swooped low over the prairie before circling leisurely overhead. Migrant Scissor-tailed Flycatchers were very much in evidence as were Blue Jays, the latter a much more abundant migrant on the UTC than many birders realize. Although Blue Jays are resident on the UTC, a large influx of this species can often be recognized during October. Such was the case on this day. In addition to the above mentioned observations, the field trip recorded two Western Kingbirds, thirteen species of warblers, and numerous early Savannah and Lincoln's Sparrows. A few observers were fortunate enough to see a Bobcat. In all, 106 species of birds were seen on the day. Special thanks go to refuge Manager, Ron Bisbee and to his assistant, Mike Lange for a most enjoyable trip to what may be the most diversified and "birdy" NWR on the Upper Texas Coast.
