Eubanks, Jr. The Piping Plover (Charadrius melodus) has recently been listed by the Interior Department as an endangered species in its breeding range, and a threatened species within its wintering range. One of the reasons for the discrepancy between classifications in ranges is a lack of data concerning the species where it winters. In order to gain more information on the wintering ecology of the species in Texas (a major wintering area), I have begun color-marking a limited sample of Piping Plovers at both Bolivar Flats and San Luis Pass. These Piping Plovers will be marked with a combination of colored flags and bands. This sequence of colors allows me to track each bird individually. In order to gain as much information as possible for each marked plover, I am asking for the assistance of the Ornithology Group. If you should sight one of these marked plovers, please record the following information: date, location, time of day, • tide, total number of Piping Plovers present, and sequence of colors. (Please make a note of positions of flags and bands.) Each bird will have two green flags on the left leg (one above and one below the metatarsal joint), and two color bands of varying colors below the joint but above the lower flag. On the right leg there will be a metal Fish and Wildlife Service band above the joint, and two color bands of varying colors below. Note: the Piping Plover Recovery Team is banding plovers on the breeding grounds, and their color sequence is different from the above (the flags differ). I have observed six of their birds on Bolivar Flats, so pay close attention to the colors and their sequence. Please forward the information from your sightings to me at 1000 South Loop West, #120, Houston TX 77054, 713-666 7639 (h) or 713-747-0101 (w).
