Transcript '6 VOLUME XVII, Ho. 4 August, 1967 ************************** * * * Take any bird, and put him in a cage, * * And do all thine intent and thy eorage, * * To foster it tenderly with meat and drink, * * And eke with all the dainties thou canst think, * * And keep it all so kindly as thou may; * * Although his cage of gold be never so gay, * * Yet hath this bird, by twenty thousand fold, * * Far rather in a forest, wild and cold, * * Go eten worms and suche wretchedness. * * * * "The Maunciples Tale" by Chaucer * * * ************************** PUBLISHED BY THE ORNITHOLOGY GROUP. OUTDOOR NATURE CLUB, HOUSTON. TEXAS In order to enable the editors to start the preparation of the SPOONBILL earlier in the month, in the future the list of COMING EVENTS will appear on the last page instead of the first. Levy and Sharon Davis' Ornithological and Tick Feeding Expedition Sharon and I spent four exciting weeks in Mexico this spring. We birded down the east coast to Villahermosa, Tabasco and then traveled inland to Palenque, Chiapas. On the way we saw Jacanas, 4 speeies of Kite, 5 speeies of Parrot, Squirrel,Cuckoos, Trogons, Motmots, Yellow-headed Vultures and all three Saltors. We also saw the Muscovy Duck but failed to find the Masked Duck. Palenque, located about 45 miles from Guatamala, is the site of magnificent ruins of the Mayan era, but this is not what brought us 1200 miles from Brownsville. This is the most humid area in Mexico and one of those fabled places for "birders," known as a tropical rain forest. Birds here fell into two groups; the first group consisted of birds which sat patiently by while I frantiely fumbled through Blake's book "Birds of Mexico" and brightly colored birds which were easy to identify. The second group were afraid of their own shadow and seemed to all be medium sized, striped and speckled brown jobs. Among the more exotic were many colorful Tanagers and Orioles. A thrilling sight was mixed flocks of Keel-billed Toucans and Collared Aracaris feeding on fruits of giant trees covered with airplants, cactus, moss and vines of many varities. Hummingbirds were everywhere and very difficult to identify. The Longtailed Hermit and Little Hermit were the exceptions as they stayed near the ground and moved about slowly. We eould have birded here the whole four weeks but.we had a schedule to follow and only spent three days. We birded our way across the isthmus of Tehuantepec to Salina Cruz on the Pacific. The mountains at the continental divide were quite arid and our best bird here was the handsome Magpie Jay. At Salina Cruz, Montezuma's Revenge finally caught up with us and we were laid low for two days. The mountains come right down to the sea here and blue water right to the shore. The Paeifie pounds the beach with huge waves and the scenery Is terrific. We were disappointed though, because we failed to find many of the western gulls and terns we had hoped for.
