Transcript Page 6 DETAILS* COVE - submitted by Arlie K. McKay I was in the field often but for over ten hours, only, on Sept. 29 - 96 species. Total for September, 166. The Eared Grebe was the earliest ever by thirty-five days. It may not be a migrant as it was in the same location as two or three seen May 10th. If any Houston birders go to see the great heron roost just south and east of Trinity Bridge, they should stop at Bridge Camp and see the Mallards,. On October 1, there were tens of thousands of birds roosting there. In order of abundances Snowy Egrets, Louisiana Herons, Water Turkeys and storks and cormorants. Black Skimmers nested in the Old River Lake, and about 100 were still present on Sept, 15. Four were not old enough to fly and were still there with one adult Sept, 29, There was a heavy migration of Common Nighthawks up till 9/11.
