Transcript Volume XXIII, No, 5 September, 1974 PUBLISHED BY THE ORNITHOLOGY GROUP. OUTDOOR HaTURE CLUB. HOUSTON. TEXAS WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE A WHITE-TAILED KETE? The White-tailed Kite has been reported in the Clearing House nearly every month this year at various locations: Katy-Hockley area, Angleton area, and several areas in Ft. Bend County. We recently made a trip to the Smithers Lake Road and Rabbs Prairie Road area, and, as advertised, found a White-tailed, Kite, This Kite was perched on a telephone pole without crossbars by the railroad track (spot marked on map below), eating a long tailed rodent. The pole was liberally splattered with droppings, indicating this was a favorite perch. Dan Hardy says that almost everyone he has directed to this area has found one or more of the Kites. Holly Hobart and Dan have both reported also seeing Black-bellied Tree Ducks in this area. The rice fields here are good habitat for many birds in all seasons. We found this to be a very pleasant, short, birding trip that we believe you will enjoy adding to your list of places to "go and see". Take Highway 59 to Richmond, turn left onto FM 762 immediately after crossing the river, and —- good birding! USES OF THE CLEARING HOUSE For the benefit of new members and subscribers it should be pointed out that the Clearing House is not just a record of birds sighted, but also a prime source of good birding spots. If you note the sighting of a bird you would like to see, the person reporting the item would be able to give you more specific directions than can be put in the Clearing House. A great many of the sites are old familiar "stomping grounds" to our members, but there are always new ones popping up. So, don't just read it, use the Clearing House. RARE BIRD ALERT : :i,S 4 Also for the new people, a resume of the function of the Alert may be helpful. It was set up so that the sighting of a bird, rare in this area at all seasons, may be shared with other interested birders. These birders are ones who want to get to the spot Indicated as quickly as possible (for some, of course, it must be the next weekend), so that they, too, may see the rare visitor. Though this information is in- . eluded in the following month's Clearing House, sometimes a really rare visitor pauses only for a day or two. Most of them, however, can usually be seen for several days or even weeks, after the initial report. rA'*■"■'■
