SINGLE PARTIES FIND OVER 200 SPECIES IN SEPARATE "BIG DAYS" ON _ ?jj^l|Pgg~*and 28 - by~'Noel"Pe.tingell ~* " A new all-time high one-party one-car record for Texas of 203 species (including Rock Dove) was established on April 22 by thr following group of observers: Benton Basham (from Dunlap, Tenn,), Victor Emanuel, Kenn Kaufman (from Wichita, Kansas), Noel Pettingell, and Jim Tucker (from Austin, Tx.). The party began Its historic run at Vic Emanuel's residence (1603 W. Clay) in Houston at 4:20 A.M. (CST), followed shortly thereafter by a 10-minute stop at City Hall which produced a Whip-poor-will "staked out" the previous evening. Pre-dawn scouting of Deussen Park south of Lake Houston yielded another Goatsucker, an unexpected Chuck-will's- widow, and quick checks of key areas in the vicinity of Sheldon Reservoir resulted in a party total of 65 species seen and/or heard by 6:15 A.M. Proceeding southeast toward Galveston Bay via Pasadena and LaPorte, the party headed for its next scheduled stop, Compton's Woods north of Seabrook. Several essential migrant species were added here as well as 4 lingering Rufous-sided Towhees and a flock of White Ibis. Upon leaving the Woods at 7:10 the list stood at 85 species and by 8 A.M. at the Texas City Dike the party had recorded a total of 114. Arriving on Galveston Island at 8:25 A.M., the team birded several essential migrant traps such as Kempner Park (Robin, Waxwing, Ovenbird, N. Waterthrush), LaFitte's Grove east of 12-mile Road (Cape May- Warbler) and 13-mile Road (Cerulean Warbler, Lincoln's Sparrow), along with important marsh and waterbird areas in between. By the time the party reached the San Luis Bridge at the western tip of the Island
