Rockport Field Trip 7:30 PM 8:00 PM 8:30 AM A hopeful note (or should we say "whoopl") was heard down at Aransas Refuge on October 28th with the appearance of $ adult Whooping Cranes accompanied by 1 of this year's young. However, according to the latest report received, only 16 Whooping Cranes including 3 fledglings had reached the Refuge. Mr. Julian Howard, Refuge administrator, is anxiously awaiting the arrival of the remainder of the flock at Aransas. ... Incidentally, Mr. Howard has promised to participate in one of our future Group programs and present his unusual color glides. 0. G. PROGRAM. The Ornithology Group will be in charge of the November program of the Outdoor Nature Club. The title of this program will be "Treatise on Birds'1, presented in a slide-lecture. 0. G. FIELD TRIP FOR NOVEMBER. We are participating with the Texas Ornitho- logical Society on their field trip to Rockport and Aransas Wild-life Refuge. This is a 3 day trip with headquarters at Connie Hager's Tourist Court in Rockport. Attend all 3 days or any day or days convenient for you. There is a good possibility of seeing the Whooping Cranes, in addition to thousands of ducks and geese, wild Turkeys, Caracaras, Eagles, and even deer. Contact Carrie Holcomb at LI U985 for details and reservations. REPORT OF FIELD TRIP ON OCT. 25TH. Some 25 birders, well represented by beginners, took part in this memorable field trip to NW Chambers County. Under the capable leadership of Mr. Artie McKay (who regularly furnishes reports to Audubon Field Notes) a number of interesting birds were observed, including: Franklin's Gullsj several Sandpipers (Least, Semipalmated, Western, Dunlin, and Willet) were seen at close range; a Clapper Rail; a Peregrine Falcon; Blue m and Snow Geesej Indigo Buntings; Swamp and Lincoln Sparrows; and — the big one for the day — a Western Kingbird in amongst Scissor-tails in the same vicinity where an Olive-sided Flycatcher was seen on September 13th. an interesting sidelight of the trip was Mr. McWhirter's photographing Josiephine Wilkin with her captive Coot (see Clearing House this issue). When the picture taking was over Mrs. Wilkin reluctantly returned her "pet" to its natural habitat. The final highlight of the dayis birding took place at Mr. IfoKayrs home near Cove. Here huge flocks of Blackbirds were seen hovering over their roosting area. Appearing like a swirling, turbulent cloud, they were estimated to number well in the hundreds of thousands. Birds put on a good show that day, but the real star was Mr. McKay. He is undoubtedly one of the most diligent and consistant birdmen in the State. .(Firs. Hager of Rockport probably holds the women's title!). His life-list contains birds never recorded anywhere else in Texas, His detailed records are practically without parallel for any given area in the State, His proficiency in field identification was convincingly demonstrated to the group whenever birds were observed. All who participated in this highly instructive trip are agreed that there should be another such trip next Spring.
