HOUSTOH COMING EVENTS Provisional field trip announced by Dr. be included in the next SPOONBILL. David Marrack, Saturday, August 26 - details will FIELD TRIP LED BY HARVEY PATTEN, MAY 27. 1967 - by Julia Bradley A very small group met at 8:00 o'clock at the East-End Sea Wall at Galveston: Harvey Patten and his son Bill, Tess Barry from Beaumont, Tom Hewes, Chris Jordan, Pat Ridge and Julia and Ewell Bradley. The weather was pleasant throughout the day, with a brisk breeze blowing and only a trace of rain once. Since the tide was out, we were able to proceed along the jetty and out to the point of the sand bar. This proved to be a very educational leg of the journey under the expert tutelage of Harvey, and we concentrated more on learning the fine points of shore bird identification than on enumerating a great number of speeies. We were especially interested in several Sandwich Terns "sandwiched" in among various speeies of gulls and terns. The usual haunts of the birders were then visited, stopping for lunch at Kempner Park. Nothing of interest was seen there and the Hutchings Estate was non-productive. However, a pair of Robins had decided that this was a pretty good place to live and they had nested there and were still around. Inca Doves were seen, as usual, at the Menard House. A pair of Scissor-tailed Flycatchers were nesting low in a tree at the "Old House", where three Yellow-billed Cuckoos were flushed out of a thicket by Harvey, and an Orchard Oriole and a warbler too elusive to identify were seen in the live oak tree. A cooperative Seaside Sparrow flitted from weed to weed in the marsh grasses in the Jamaica Beaoh area. Clapper Rails were heard in this vicinity and finally three Clappers rose up out of the grasses in the distance, flapped about and then back down in the grasses, our only view of rails. The group disbanded and went their separate ways. Harvey reports that he spotted a Bronzed Cowbird en route home in the vicinity of the "Old House." We profited greatly by the day's study and we only wish that more people had joined us.
