Thus the CH Ed. feels It is unnecessary to publish field notes on those species reported. However, the field notes on the Red-necked Grebe at the Quintana Jetty (Freeport CC) by Dennis Caputo and David Dauphin are especially Interesting, as well as well-written, so they are being Included for the benefit of the SPOONBILL'S readers.3 RED-NECKED GREBE: Location Quintana Jetty, Freeport, Brazoria Co. Size: Slightly larger than Laughing Gull. Description: This bird was spotted by Dennis Capu+o. At near 1300 hours, on 12/17/78, approximately 3/4 east on the Jetty and 30-40 yards south and perpendicular to the Je++y we bo+h observed a Red-necked Grebe. Immedia+e impression was that 1+ was Indeed my most desired UTC bird. This bird remained floating with approximately thirty Laughing Gulls, enabling a good size comparison. Neck height from body to top of head was about nine Inches. Body width was about half again as much as gulls, body length was slightly longer. Bird' beak was fine and pointed, but more loon-like than a Western Grebe and considerably shorter. Width of beak at base was somewhat wide. Bill appeared darker at tip and lighter at base, but no color was dlscernable. Head was very angular when viewed from the side and appeared too large. From the front, head was triangular in appearance. Bird had a large white cheek patch beginning below the eye, extending from back of head to under bill. Bird had a medium dingy gray color on top of head, back of head, back of neck, on back, and on closed wings. Front of neck, breast, sides were a much lighter dingy gray. I observed bird for approximately 2 minutes with 10x50 binocs and approximately 15 minutes with I5-60X telescope used mostly at 40X. I left scope with Dennis and left jetty for about an hour to look for other birders to come see this bird. Upon returning, Dennis had noted that upon rising in the heavy seas, the bird's legs were noted to be quite close +o +he rear of bird. He also no+ed large light wing patches in secondaries when bird rose and flapped its wings. He had viewed the bird for over an hour. Dennis' other field marks were the same as mine. Caputo drew good pictures of the bird showing head shape from front and location of wing patches, and a side view showing body proportions and markings. Notes were read and accepted by FCC committee of Eubanks, Morgan, McHenry, PettingelI, Emanuel. It shoud be noted that when Dennis told me he had seen large white wing patches on this bird, I jokingly told him to throw our notes into the Gulf, because I did not think this bird had wlngpatches. Not having had a field guide wl+h us, because I had told Dennis we would not need one, we quickly left the jetty for the car +o look up the bird and those wlngpatches, and I ate a great deal of crow! I was sure glad he had kept those notes Clacking paper, we had written them on a number of Dennis' business cards!) This bird was a lifer for both of us, and pr-ain, was my most desired UTC bird. It should also be noted that David Marrack's
