SOME INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT 1977 UTC BIRDING compiled by Jim Morgan 1) All species on the malnbody of the Upper Texas Coast Checklist were reported In 1977 with the following exceptions: Common Merganser, Prairie Falcon, Pomarlne Jaeger and Bachman;s Sparrow. 2) 14 Accidental/Vagrant species were reported Including 3 new UTC species: Long- tailed Jaeger, Long-billed Thrasher and Virginia's Warbler. (New species subject to Checklist Committee acceptance). 3) 2 introduced species were reported. 4) Grand to+al of species reported = 345! 5) Plus 8 additional races, forms (or hybrids). 6) Total of all species, races and forms = 353 (Information obtained from Clearing House, American Birds, and reliable personal communication). IT HAS BEEN A GREAT YEAR ON THE UTC by Margaret Jones That 330 year's list total remained tantalizing (see Dec. 1977 SPOONBILL), but oh— so close! The Masked Duck at Anahuac on Dec. 29 gave me the 329th species for the year (Margaret Anderson was out of town the last few days of the year, otherwise that duck would have been on her list too). In addition to the 329 birds, there were 7 races or forms also seen. Of those, Audubon's Warbler and Bullock's Orlols are often seen, but never before had I seen a Red-shafted Flicker In the UTC. It Is Interesting to note that Margaret A. saw 4 birds I didn't find: Parasitic Jaeger, Blue-faced Booby, Golden Eagle, and Western Tanager. There were five birds on my lls+ she didn't have: Masked Duck, Swallow-tailed Kite, Hairy Woodpecker, Virginia's Warbler and Black-throated Gray Warbler. Also, there were four possible additions seen on Christmas Counts In the area I searched for and failed to find: Long-billed Thrasher, Pyr- rhuloxla, and Roadrunner (you can'+ really search for a Roadrunner, you have +o let him happen +o you!), also Evening Grosbeak. So, as far as I know, there were six OG members who saw more than 300 birds In the UTC this past year:
