Transcript 17 er edgings; bird frequen+ly vocalized a short, high-pitched "prrrt", an Ash-throated call note with which I am familiar; observed with 1 Ox glasses in good light from as close as 30 feet for 20 minutes. —Ted Eubanks, Jr. VARIED THRUSH: Cl previously seen 1935 I previously seen 1965 Arl le McKay E. McHenry, Location: Dry hackberry grove in middle of dry marsh on Bolivar Peninsula at Sun Oil property. Size: Near Robin size. Description: Head, back, wings and tall were steely blue-grey, although head was slightly darker. Bright orange on throat and on eyestrlpe which extended to back of head. Rusty orange on breast, two wingbars, and on spot below rear wlngbar. Some lighter orange spotting In primaries. 1/2 inch wide, almost black, stripe across chest. Belly dingy white. Under tail coverts appeared whiter. Legs pink. Beak dark. Bird had some gray near- vertical streaks on lower flanks that were hard to see. Voice: not heard. Behavior: Much like that of Robin. Scraped leaves on ground with beak while feeding. Somewhat tame until crowded by several birders. Bird would stay on groung half of the time, then fly up into low portion of bare trees, then return to ground. At one point, while I was sitting on'ground, the bird approached to within at most six feet. Bird was sighted by Dennis Caputo, then by David Dauphin. We wa+ched bird for about 15 minutes, then Caputo left to find other birders. It was later seen and photographed by Mac Read and Ken Drozd of Orange. CEd. note: At OG meeting Jan. 4, Dauphin announced that since the Rare Bird Alert went out the night of Dec. 27, 156 people had called to report seeing the bird. He doesn't know how many had seen it but not reported]. Total duration of observation: One and one half hours for Dauphin, thirty minutes for Caputo, twenty minutes each for Read and Drozd. Closest distance: 3-6 feet, average was 25 feet. Light: bright to fair. Time of observation: 1500 hours-lfiSO hours. 10x50 binocs. —David Dauphin Additional comments by other observers of Varied Thrush: "Dark tail with white- tipped outer tail feathers; orange spots below orange wingbars"—Paul Nimmons. "Behaved very much like the Aztec Thrush In Arizona (although less tame). Varied held tall higher". —Tony Gallucci Northern Oriole ITctSAui galbula): This female "Baltimore" oriole was first observer by Jane Clayton sitting high in a bare-limbed tree in good light.

The tail was dark orange from below. Bill was black. The belly was of a lighter yellow- orange than the breast color. —Paul Jones Blackbird sp.: 20,000;000 blackbirds at Maner Lake roost were watched for over an hour. At dark we estimated there may have been as many as 3 birds per cubic foot (roosting In layers in marsh) over perhaps 300 acres. Such a density Is equivalent
