Transcript Page 5 CLEARING HOUSE December 7 December 13 December 15 December 17 December 20 December 22 December 26 December 27 December 31 January 1 - January 4 - January 6 - January 7 ■Mrs. Maurine Jarrell, Mrs. Venice Wallenberg of Ft. Worth, and Joe Heiser, recorded a Fox Sparrow in a large flock of sparrows including White-throated, Chipping, Field, Vesper, Lincoln's, and Slate-colored Juncos. On this date and on Dec. 24, a Solitary Vireo was feeding in the oak trees on Charlotte Street (Norma Oates). - Steve Williams recorded three Purple Fineh. - John O'Neill, Ralph Peterson, and Mr. McElroy found a Red- breasted Merganser near Matagorda Pensulia. However, their best finds were in mammals which included Black- tailed Jackrabbits, a Striped Skunk, 2 Spotted Skunks, and a family of Raccoons. Steve Williams discovered a Western Tanager near his home in West University Place (SW Houston) ~ Hardin Craig Jr. found a Green-tailed Towhee at Tea's Nursery on Bellaire Blvd. (SWHouston). - Mrs. Chas. Hamilton observed 15 Orange-cr. Warblers in her yard at 2639 Fenwood Road. - Earnest Wright recorded a Green-tailed Towhee at Tea's Nursery. (Probably the same one seen on the 15th) - Mr. Thomas S. Butler and Mr, H, P. McElroy found a Pigeon Hawk and Peregrine Falcon on Sergeant Beach In the Freeport area. - Mr. Earnest Wright and Bill Risser noted 3 CATTLE EGRETS near 10-mile Road on Galveston Island. - Mr. Thomas Butler and H. 0, McElroy observed a Peregrine Falcon attempting to catch a Blue-winged Teal, The female hawk, which was flying about 100 feet above the road, missed the teal and had to look farther for her lunch, (Katy area) - 50 Lapland Longspurs were recorded on Clay Road by John O'Neill. (Katy area) While birding near Clodine, Texas, John O'Neill noted a Krider's Red-tailed Hawk and a melanistle flicker. The flicker was brownish-black in color, thus preventing its identification as to exact species. Mrs. L,A.M, Barnette and Mrs. Ike Sheffield found a Vermilion Flycatcher at the Little Thicket. This is a new species for the sanctuary, thus bringing the total to 177. Just before leaving the Little Thicket, 'Joe Heiser found a Cedar Waxwing that was unable to fly. A closer study revealed a large tick on the bird's head. The tick had probably drained the bird of so much blood that it was either too weak or too dizzy to fly. Joe removed the tick and in a short while the bird seemed to be doing better. Late in the evening Joe Heiser heard and saw a Common Nighthawk at the Little Thioket, The bird seemed to be feeding in the usual manner but it is doubtful wheather lt found much to eat| there was a light freeze at the Little Thicket the night before'. ********************** Audubon Warbler On December 14, 1957 Louise and Henry Hoffman and Norma Oates made a trip to Sugar Land, Texas to scout an area for an O.G, field trip. Birds were very numerous In a little cemetery near a pecan grove, and feeding with Myrtle Warblers, Bluebirds, Vesper Sparrows, and other small birds was an Audubon Warbler. This bird was seen at least four times on the ground and in nearby trees. The deep yellow of the throat was observed in good light many times as this warbler (there may have been more than one) remained close-by for over an hour while the observers ate lunch, gathered pecans, and watched birds. On December 21, 1957, on a return trip to re-check the area, another individual of this species was seen and positively identified by the deep yellow on the throat as compared with the white throat of the many Myrtle Warblers in the area.
