Eared Grebe by Mr. McKay on 9/lS establishes a new earliest fall date. Previous record 10/25. 2. Mallard "(not migrants?). Mr.. Roberts, operator of Bridge Fishing Camp on the Trinity, raised six ducklings of which he still has a duek and two drakes. He says, they were caught in a marsh nearby, and will not agree they are Mallards because, he says they don't nest here. He insists that they are Mottled Ducks. I suspect they are domestic callers! " AKM. 3. Cinnamon Teal: New earliest ever for fall. Previous record 10/31/38. Fifth fall record. LSn, CS. 4. White-*ailed Kites Eighth area record, second for fall. "(On Sept* 13, 1959 at 4s00 pa at the terminus of Ransom Read near Richmond, Texas, Nancy and I saw two mature birds,; On 10/2/60 we drove to the same location at 4:15 pm with Mr. and Mrs. Milton Frashuer and saw two mature birds. We suspect they may have nested in the Brazos River Valley but we did not find a nest or immature birds. This pair of kites is only 12 miles from the Houston City limits. Our 1959 report was in the issue of the SPOONBILL, This sighting was not as good. The birds were at 3-400 yards and were seen both sitting and flying." 5. Red-tailed Hawks Sixth summer record. This bird was observed subsequently through the middle of August and on the 27th it was observed feeding two immatures. As they were well grown, it ishard to tell if this constitutes an actual nesting record or not; however, it hardly seems credible that it would have migrated into the area while still dispatching parental obligations. TBF 6. White-rumped Sandpipers Fourth fall record for this area, LSn, CS (carefully identified) 7. Baird's Sandpipers First fall record for our area* SGW. 8. Black Terns- No authentication for this statement but I believe this to be an all-time, high count for this area* TBF. 9. Groove-billed Anis First summer record for this area or earliest fall, (It's a paradoxical situation - Ed.) CHA. 10. Say's Phoebe: The earliest fall arrival date for this rare and local bird.. The 5th consecutive year for Cove and AKM, 11. Water Fipits: Both observers for the Water Pipit broke the old early fall date of IO/1/36; again the question arises, "Are Mr. Grant McNiehol's birds, summer visitants or ultra early migrantsV GM, AKM. 12.. Bell's Vireos Local status RARE, LSn, CS. 13. YELLOW-GREEN VIREOs: New bird for the area. checklist. "In August I saw what I assumed was a variant of the Red-eyed Vireo. Its under tail-coverts were distinctly yellowish. On 9/8 I saw.another with yellow -under tail-coverts and yellowish up the sides. This one I accent as a Yellow-green Vireo. Out of place?- Yes, but not more than the two seen in W,. Florida or the one at Godbout, Quebec, north of the Gulf of St. Lawrence.AKM. 14. LARK BUNTINGs: Another addition to the area Checklist. (Incidentally this bird was predicted by Steve Williams one week before its initial appearance here.) "10/1/60 Lark Bunting at Galveston, Texas, South Jetty, 3sO0 pm; one male in fair plumage perched on catwalk at 60-70'.. It flew to the ground to a proximity of 30' and fed and flew near us at 15'. White wing-patches and horn-colored bill easily seen." JBS, NS.
