STEVE WILLIAMS REPORTS:
So far it has been a pretty good spring for birds. Lots of northers, some
showers,, and lots of birders out every time any of these weather quirks happened. West
Boulevard in Houston has paid off exceptionally well far migrants. It has paid off so
well that it will receive a special designation in this reports. H-WB, meaning Houston-
West Blvd. E-Yd means the observation was made in or near my yard at 2732 University
Blvd. in Houston. Other Houston sightings will be given full name locations. Houston
