Hardy JH Jean Harwell BM Bill McClure MM&RM Mary Ann and Robert Moore NO Norma Oates PR Pat Ridge Clearing House Notes: Ruddy Duck: September 2. The 2 male did no long lave the bright blue bills. These looked darkish from a distance. The white cheeks and black crown were well visible. One of the ducks flew up while I watehed. September 21. This was a brood of 5 immature birds, approximately 3 weeks old, and one adult - female. The young flapped their wings quite frequently while I watched. The wings did not yet have any primaries. I got a picture of this. This sighting shows how difficult it is to find a nesting pair on Shoveller Pond. Maybe that Masked Duok also nested successfully. Who knows?? - Three otters were seen on September 28, feeding on Shoveller Pond. I haven't seen those for a long time. - Did you see "Sandy, the Sandhill Crane" in the October Readers Digest? - A very touching story! - Dirk Hagemeyer. Catbird: On the morning of September 29, I had the pleasure of watching a Catbird taking a bath in dew. There was a fairly heavy dew on the vines and the bird spent at least 5 minutes flopping around, on,in and out of them until it was wet. It would shake just as though it was in a bird bath and then do it over again. - Bill McClure. Red-eyed Vireo: The individual we saw was extremely yellow, with bright yellow undertail coverts and sides. A yellow-green? Steve Williams says this speoies may be listed as a subspecies of the Red-eye in the next A. 0. U. Check-list. We felt that since we didn't get a real good look at it as it flitted around in the treetops, we would list it as a Red-eye. - Dan Hardy. eteetcetcetcetcetcetcetc re additional sightings of birds: Amarillo: On the 18th of September the cool front of the previous evening dropped the temperature from 82 to 41. Overnight the shallow marshes and ponds were full of ducks and waders, mainly pintails, teals and shovelers; most of the waders were unidentifiable from the roads. "Hawks"huddled in scrub and on posts in the less exposed places. I found Swainson's, immature Redtails and Prairie Falcons which were willing to be watched at close quarters during a short morning trip - David Marrack.
