Observed with 7x binoculars and 20x scopes (2). When first observed, bird was fishing, about 100 yards from observers. Bird was watched for nearly 10 minutes, during which time lt moved steadily away from the observers. Description: (notes made on the scene by MAM). Thin bill, not upturned.

Bird was seen walking in small puddle, apparently hunting food. The bird was about 4 feet tall with a white body. When I approached closely, the bird flew a short distance. The after edges of the wings (about 6-8 inches) were Black, wing- span was aBout 5-5% feet. The Bird landed in a larger puddle. I was able to get within 15 feet and take some black-and-white pictures with my camera using its standard 50mm lens and Plus-X film. The bill on the head of the stork was long, over a foot, and curved downward, lite a curlew. The bill at its base was almost as broad as the head of the stork. The head was not feathered, but looked lite wrinkled skin, black in color, extending down the neck. The wrinkles were quite pronounced. I am sending two of the five pictures taken. One is full frame, the other is an enlarged picture of the bird to show detail. — Roger Hobart and Sandi Hobart (The submitted pictures show an unmistakable Wood Stork; the trouble and time these observers spent verifying this bird is appreciated—C-H Editor) Gannet: An immature bird—dark and mottled, not white—seen in flight at the end of the Freeport Jetty as close as 45 yards with 8x30 binoculars. Watched about 3 minutes. A large bird with a large, pointed bill, white patch at the base of its pointed tail, and in flight the body was held in an "uphill" profile. —Elaine Robinson Ross'Goose: Near Jack Rd. off Katy-Hockley Cutoff, W.
