Whittle April 27,1997. Two birds were soaring over a shrimp boat. Two others were lover over a shrimp boat. Characteristic wing and body shape of frigatebird. Of the lower tow birds, one appeared all dark, the other had some white on throat and/or belly. Magnificent Frigatebirds are only frigatebird known for this area. P. and T. Frank observed frigatebirds at this location also. Similar description. Glossy Ibis -J. Whittle April 26, 1997. Typical Plegadis ibis. Body and neck deep chestnut. Bright sky-blue bare skin in line from top of eye to base of upper mandible, thicker in center than at either end. Thinner sky-blue line from bottom of eye to base of lower mandible. No bare skin behind eye. Curlew Sandpiper - P.D. Hulce April 30, 1997 East Beach, Galveston. A medium large, plain gray and white sandpiper - upperparts all uniform gray with some slightly dark centers to some feathers of the scapulars and wings, especially the tertials. Underparts clean white from undertail to middle breast, with some very faint, gray streaking/spotting on the upper breast. Small rounded gray head with fine dark streaking on the crown and very prominent whitish supercilium, which met on the forehead. Curved and pointed bill, glossy black in color. The bill was curved throughout its length and was quite different from Dunlin. White rump patch seen in flight. Photographed. California Gull - P.D. Hulce April 30, 1997 A large, near adult gull, with a medium gray back. Dark brown eye with bright red eye ring. Long yellow bill with red spot on lower mandible and slight black marking in front of red spot. White head with steep forehead and rounded crown, eye appeared fairly small on side of head. California Gull - P & T. Frank April 12, 1997 Head was all white, and was rounded. Iris color was yellow with a dark pupil and red orbital ring. Bill length was approximately equal to head depth. Bill color was yellow. It had a thin black line at rear of gonys on both upper and lower mandibles with line on upper mandible being thinner than lower and not quite appearing to encircle uppermandible. There was a red spot on the lower mandible where the black line was at. The breast was completely white. The mantle, scapulars, and coverts all appeared uniformly gray. This gray color was darker than Ring-billed Gulls and Herring Gulls (Larus argentatus) but not darker than Laughing Gull (Larus atricilla). The primaries appeared uniformly black. In the standing bird , there was very little white evident. Birds did not open their wings during the time we observed them. The legs of these birds were yellowish to yellowish-green in appearance. The eye color of these birds is problematic for California Gull. Glaucous Gull - P. and T. Frank April 12,1997. This gull had a white head. It's mantle, scapulars, and coverts were a very light gray. The rest of the plumage was white with brown splotchy mottling. The auxiliaries however were completely white. The bird was observed standing, spreading it's wings, and in flight. The bird's bill had a black tip to it and the rest was a pinkish color. The iris was yellowish with a dark pupil. The bird was not observed standing directly with a Herring Gull (Larus argentatus), but seemed smaller, not as massive as a usual Glaucous Gull. The legs were pinkish. The wing extension past the tail was very short. When it did stand next to a Ring-billed Gull (Larus delawarensis) it was slightly bigger. Greater Black-backed Gull - P.D. Hulce April 4, 1997. Very large immature gull, with a fairly large, whitish head and a huge bill with an all dark tip. Wings and back brownish with darker spotting. Hght pink legs. Larger than nearby Herring Gull. Olive-sided Flycatcher - J. Whittle April 5, 1997. rothonotary Pond, Boy Scout Woods. Flycatching from the next to top perch on dead snags. Flycatcher, fairly conl't pag. 4
