Transcript Page 9. at Cayo del Oso (local mudflat), found a strange shorebird which he was not familiar with. The 23rd it was positively identified as a Ruff!! Informing me of his find, I made it to Corpus two weeks later. On the morning of November 2, I watched his Ruff for 45 minutes. Our best view was on a mudflat with Greater and Lesser Yellowlegs, Black-bellied Plovers and a dowiteher, from 20 feet for five minutes. It was flushed three times and the tail was seen clearly. A cold front came through that night but the next morning the bird was still there. Total observation time: 2 hours. Our Ruff was an adult male in winter plumage. It was distinctive from surrounding shorebirds with its scaly back and dumpy size. It had bright orange legs, a grayish wash on its breast, a stout black bill with an olive-yellow base, and a faint eye-line. It had an unusual "white-faced" appearance with white cheeks and throat meeting over the bill- The white sides of the tail were not clear-cut ovals. The bird to date, Hovember who have seen previously. has been seen by fourteen people including three people More on Gannets by Bessie G. Cornelius I am not sure whether I or Sharon Davis gave you the information about the dead Gannet found in the same locality where the live ones were seen, but to follow up on the Gannets here is the information: On October 6, 1968, Dr. Jed J. Ramsey, Lamar State College of Technology, Dr. Howard Mackey also of Lamar and his son Tiger, found a dead Gannet on the beaoh about 150 feet east of the High Island Fishing Pier. It was immature. So that is the last report I have received on the Gannets and I thought it might sort of wrap up the other two reports I made to you. From Marian Washburn: Credit lines for several cartoons were omitted from the roster, due to an error on the part of the editor, and said editor wishes to try to make amends. The "Marmaduke" cartoon should have carried the line: "Reprinted by permission, Houston Post and National Newspaper Syndicate." The two delightful pictures of "The Girls" appeared by courtesy of the artist,Franklin Folger. The poem by Gwen Frostic was also printed by permission. The roster editor has apologized personally to the artist, the poet and the syndicate and it is hoped that they will not sue us for a million dollars in damages!
