Rare Bird Alert Chairman David Dauphin reported on the rarities In the area, Including Varied Thrush and Ash-throated Flycatcher on Bolivar Peninsula, Red-necked Grebes at the HL&P Cooling Ponds and the Quintana Jetties, and Golden Eagles and Oldsquaw in West Harris Co. Aluminum Chairman Jerry Baker reported income of $32 from Aluminum sales the past month.

The meeting adjourned at 9:30 p.m. Respectfully submitted, Janet Eubanks. PLACES TO GO As you will see when you read the Clearing House and Field Notes, W. Harris Coun+y or habi+a+ similar to that area, will be productive. With W. Harris County harboring Golden and Bald Eagles, Ross' Geese among the thousands of Snows and Blues, it isn't surprising an Oldsquaw popped up on the Cypress Creek Christmas Count. Longspurs will be seen In that area until the end of January, if past appearances hold true. Quoting from the January SPOONBILL of 1977: "...look for a loose flock that will rise, fly, wheel, and turn with a flash of white bellies, then as they get close to the ground, will drop all at once. Shorebirds, and there are some out there, fly In tight flocks, and never very high as they wheel over a wet field, and blackbirds are much less disciplined In their flocks, and, of course, never flash that white." — :. '.'. The Varied Thrush hopefully will stay around for awhile (the one seen In 1965 stayed two months). So far, Sun Oil has not objected to birders entering their property in search of this bird, who Is staying In a large Hackberry grove. Complete directions may be gotten from David Dauphin or the editor.
