Transcript nearby house of Mrs. Stewart LeBlanc, Jr. 2911 Avenue 0, a Galveston birder, hoping to get from her a copy of "A Field Guide to the Birds", "Audubon Land Bird Guide" or any other book with a description of the Mangrove Cuckoo. Mrs. LeBlanc had no books that could help so we went to the Galveston Public Library and checked out a copy of the Audubon Guide. We returned to the Menard where Pat still had the bird under observation. "Immediately after we arrived at the house, a mockingbird began harassing the cuckoo and drove it from the grounds of the Menard house. It lighted in a large live oak tree across the street. As we read each field mark from the book, all three of us studied the bird to verify that the bird bore the mark. We did this for each of the marks described in the book. Mrs. LeBlanc then left us to try to find the other two members of our party who were covering another part of our Christmas Count area. Pat and I continued to observe the bird as it moved from tree to tree. We found the bird at approximately 10:00 AM and had it under almost continuous observation until we lost it at about 1:00 PM. Mrs. LeBlanc searched unsuccessfully for the other members of our party until other duties forced her to give up about noon. At 1:30 we went to a pre-arranged meeting with 5 other members of our count group and immediately returned with them to search the area. We were unsuccessful. The following day eight people from Houston, joined by Mrs. LeBlanc again searched futilely. The next day I returned alone with no success."
