OG News & Announcements Improvements at Aransas A Hunch About Henslow's Rockport - In a community where birdwatching is worth millions of dollars per year in tourism spending, the Aransas Woods Bird Sanctuary, a partnership project of TPWD andTxDOT, was dedicated with the unveiling of a new observation platform and boardwalk on Nov. 7. Constructed with volunteer labor by the Rockport Bird and Nature Club with funds donated by the USFWS and the family of Robert M. Latimer, the observation platform and boardwalk overlooks a complex of grassland, oak motte and shallow-water wetlands offering a variety of wildlife-watching opportunities. Neotropical migrant birds flock to the site for food and shelter and the freshwater ponds are congregating points for waterfowl. The viewing station serves as a memorial to Latimer, an outdoorsman, who spent many hours watching and photographing birds on the Central Texas Coast before his death in May, 1994. A bronze plaque commemorating Latimer will be unveiled during the ceremony. Latimer's family made this lasting tribute in their father's name through TPWD's Special Non- game Fund and the Wildlife Legacy Project. For more information about the Wildlife Legacy Project, a tax-deductible fund used to further the conservation of nongame wildlife habitat, call (512) 389-4644. One of the highest priority birds for Partners In Flight (PIF) and a possible addition to the endangered species list is the Henslow's Sparrow. A true skulker, it is a lot more common as a wintering species in the eastern third of Texas than most birders realize. The species once bred in tall grass prairies of the Upper Texas Coast (present day Houston) until 1982. David and Mimi Wolf of Nacogdoches began to notice this species as being a lot more regular in Texas than birders once thought. They started really searching the bluestem fields of eastern Texas in the early 1990s and were rewarded. The bird has since been removed from the TRBC Review List. Texas PIF, the Gulf Coast Bird Observatory, the USFWS and others are partnering together and soliciting the help of area birders to help determine the abundance and habitat preference for this species in Texas. The OG is expected to provide much of the man power that is expected to flush this secretive grassland species. More details on how you can get involved in this "citizen science" project to assist with answering some basic questions as to why this species is so sensitive and declining. With your help, we can reverse that decline. by Cliff Shackelford, State Coordinator Texas PIF (Austin) • i i
