Transcript visit this year, I will do my best to accomodate you better. Call me at 602-823-4295 and speak quickly - something about my rural phone line makes the answering machine cut off after about 10 seconds. For a refuge bird list send me a self- addressed stamped envelope at PO Box 323, Sasabe AZ 85633. The Buenos Aires Refuge is south of Tucson on Hwy 286, about 12-hour drive from Tucson. Camping is allowed. If you are coming to Arizona this nesting season don't miss it! Wayne Shifflett sends his best to all and joins in my invitation. Qlt*Wh$tft***> MARCH, 1987 The Clearing House is a monthly record of bird sightings made on the Upper Texas Coast. How to read the CH: Location—(how many) date, observers. Common, widely distributed species on the UTC during the reported month are listed as follows: number of reports, (lowest # - highest #; total # of individuals seen), e.g. 8 reports (1-20:82). Noteworthy sightings will be underlined, capitalized, or both, according to their status. Birds with very rare, vagrant, accidental, or no status on the Checklist at the date of sighting require details. Sightings needing details but submitted without them will not be included in the regular Clearing House. All observations affecting the species' status on the current UTC Checklist must be accepted by the Checklist Committee. Documentation Is a must for consideration by the Committee. SARAH GORDON A very wonderful lady and dedicated conservationist died this month after a long illness. An enthusiastic birder, Sarah Gordon was chairman of the Ornithology Group in the early seventies. She also served as president of the ONC in 1976-77, the first woman to be elected to that office. Sarah had a delightful sense of humor. Some years ago she was in charge of the program at the May potluck supper. She announced it would be a slide show of bird pictures she had gathered ^from many sources. After the first few slides we realized that all the pictures were photographic goofs, such as a bird flying with only its tail showing at the side of the picture. Anyone who was there will remember that hilarious program. After that whenever a photographer missed a shot, he would say, "Well, I'll give that one to Sarah." Sarah was interested in all the activities of the ONC, and she particularly loved the Nature Sanctuary. One of her last outings was to plant some trees there in a memorial grove. She will be remembered for her happy, friendly personality, and she will be greatly missed. Wood Ducks east of the Great Plains winter on the Atlantic and Gulf Coasts. Northern ducks mingle with our residents. In spring at least half of the females return to nest within five miles of where they were hatched, but males have no homing instinct and disperse within their range. In this way both local populations and gene diversity are maintained. ABBREVIATION COOES AB = Armand Bayou NC ANWR - Anahuac NWR Bayt ■ Baytown BBCR » Bob's Bait Camp Rd.
