PUBLISHED BY THE ORNITHOLOGY GROUP. OUTDOOR NATURE CLUB. HOUSTON, TEXAS IH MEMORIAM by Sarah Gordon The death of Dr, Hardin Craig, Jr. is a great loss to the Ornithology Group. He accomplished much in his lifetime through his appreciation of birds and by sharing his knowledge and interest in them. Dr, Craig's contributions to THE SPOONBILL and as a member of many t lents will be greatly missed. Our sincere condolences to Mrs, Craig and his family, 193 SPECIES BY OHE PARTY OH APRIL 22 ESTABLISHES NEW TEXAS RECORD by Noel Pettingell "Big Day" history in the Lone Star State was made when a one-car party of 5 "hard Core" birding enthusiasts recorded 193 species (including Rock Dove) along the traditional Houston to Galveston route between 4;50 AM and 7;^5 PM on April 22, 1971. Participants in this Momentous Marathon were: James A Tucker from Austin (founder of the American Birding Assn. in 1968 and editor of ABA's unique '/bird-lister's Bible", Birding) Charles ("Chuck") Turner from Apopka, Fla. and Philip H. Warren from Orlando, Fla. T. Ben Feltner and the writer form Houston Our itinerary included 5 key areas, each containing essential species usually not found elsewhere along the route. The importance of these various habitats to the final outcome of a maximum species count is clearly evident throughout the following chronological account of the April 22nd all-out bird-finding effort; AREA 1 - Sheldon Reservoir/Lake Houston Essential pre-dawn species added here were Barred, Horned and Screech Owls, After daybreak (5:30) we found such "exclusive essentials" Anhinga, Wood Duek, Purple Gallinule (at Buckhorn Lake 3 mi. east of Sheldon Res.), Pileated/Red-bellied/Red-headed/Downy Woodpeckers, Common Crow, E, Bluebird, Pine Warbler, and Am. Goldfinch. Other essentials recorded here but also found elsewhere included Swainson*s/Kentucky/Hooded Warblers and Chipping Sparrow, We missed Olivaceous Cormorant, Turkey Vulture, Cliff Swallow, and YeHow-throated Vireo, but found the following "bonus" (i.e. unexpected) species to replace them; Double-erested Cormorant, Franklin's Gull, Cape May Warbler; and Swamp Sparrow. By the time we left Area 1 at 9;15, we had listed an even 100 species (Rook Dove not yet added). AREA 2 - Lynchbarg/Bavtown Tunnel Important speeies here were White Pelican, Lesser Scaup, Black Vulture, Red-tailed/Red- shouldered/Broad-winged Hawks, Common and Black Terns, and Water Pipat. Although we missed Swainson's Hawk a bonus Osprey took its place and our list tota&d 120 species when we had finished covering Area 2 (10j45 AM). AREA 3 - La Porte/Seabrook Compton's Woods (north of Seabrook near Galveston Bay) is an excellent "migrant trap" and it was here that we Increased our warbler list from 16 to 26 speeies, whieh proved to be the day's final total and possibly an all-time high for a single party in Texas.' Other essential species added here included Wood Pewee, Gray-eheeked Thrush, Veery, and Rose-brpasted Grosbeak, We missed Scarlet Tanager but a Sharp-shinned Hawk was a bonus replacement. Our party tatal at 12 noon was 136 species (Rook Dove still unrecorded), no additions to the list being made prior to departure from Area 3 at 12;30 PM.
