Transcript 3 VOLUME XVIII, NO. 1 May, 1969 REMIHDERi Dues for the Ornithology Group are payable April 1 of each year. PUBLISHED BY THE ORNITHOLOGY GROUP, OUTDOOR NATURE CLUB, HOUSTON, TEXAS NOEL PETTINGILL REPORTSt " Dr. Kent Rylander of Texas Tech. at Lubhock, who is editor of both the TOS BUIXETIH and NEWSLETTESf sent me 100 reprints and announced in the .Marc-L.__W_I_I__t. that, they are available from me upon Bequest... So far I've had requ__!ts..f__r_. College Station, Port Arthur, Gainesville, Dickinson, Austin, Texas and one e__h from Ark*., La., Colorado and California! So you see the SPOONBILL is of considerable importance among local and out-of-state birders!" HOTES ON M.GBA.IHG BROAD-WINGED HAWKS, APRIL 13, 1969 - - ELRIC H. McHEHRY A large„.flight of Broad-winged Hawks was observed moving north over Dickinson on April 13. Ben Feltner first noticed the hawks about ls45 PM. Ben and I then witnessed a continual stream of migrating Broad-wings for more than an _ea_v It. is. very probable- __at..i__... - flight had been passing over for. quite some time before we toc-___atica_ Our conservative estimate of the number of hawks observed between lr.45 PM and 3«00 PM is 15,000. By 3i00 PM only occasional stragglers were to be seen, over Dickinsoru- The weather that afternoon was warm, cloudy, and with a slight breeze from the south. The birds were estimated as. flying between 20 mph and 30 mph at altitudes from treetop level to an estimated 1000 feet. The mass were flying at about 300-500 feet. I estimated the average width of the flight to be about 500 feet_ The observations indicate that the flight must have been at least 30 miles long. The following is a summary of our count made during seventy minutes of observations 10 minutes at 500 per minute = 5000 30 minutes at 250 per minute = 7500 20 minutes at 100 per minute = 2000 10 minutes at 50 per minute = 500 Total = 15,000 Another interesting aspect of this mass migration was the other birds of prey observed migrating along with the Broad-wings. The following, is a summary of those observationst Cooper's Hawk - 1 Sharp-shinned Hawk - 7 Mississippi Kite - 5 Swainson's Hawk - 2 We noticed that the Kites flew lower than the mass of Broad-wings and the aecipiters flew higher. REGULAR O.G. FIELD TRIP, MAY 3, 1969 - - GLADYS M. GALBREATH Mrs, Jerry Baker was an excellent leader of nine experienced "birders", Margaret Anderson, Dirk Hagemeyer, Norma Oates, Melba Drake, Sarah Gordon, Mrs. B.H. Wilkins, Mr. and Mrs, Ewell C. Bradley, and Louise Rogers, and. two amateurs,.Bue Buck and Gladys Galbreath (the Bradleys insist they be included in the latter category). The locations at High Island "birded" were the Boy Scout Woods and Brannon Woods.
