Transcript Masked Boobv- G. D. Luckner June 26, 1994 Immature Masked Booby observed at Coast Guard dock front the Bolivar ferry. A large sulid, basically brown and uhite. Head and neck faded brown. Underparts white from the upper breast to the undertail coverts. Upperparts appeared faded brown; a white cervical collar was evident. On the resting bird, lesser upperwing coverts were faded brown; median and greater upper coverts appeared white, streaked with brown; primaries dark brown. The bill appeared pale gray. Presence of cervical collar eliminates other sulids. r.nnper's Hawk - J. Whittle June 16, 1994 Observed off of US 69 at junction with Texas 347 and Spur 380. Bird was observed flying across highway. Exhibited typical Accipter flight characteristics. Typical Accipter with short, rounded wings and long tail. Substantially larger than nearby Fish Crows. Tail was long, held straight, not fanned with obvious rounded terminal corners. Broad-uinaed Hauk - J. Whittle June 20, 1994 Observed off of US 69 at junction with Texas 347 and Spur 380. Crow-sized hawk, with relatively short tail. The wing tips on the perched bird came approximately half way down the tail. The side of the head, back, upper wings were dark brown. The underparts were not completely observed, but the ventral area was white as were the leg feathers.When the bird flew there were no white panels on the upper surface of the outer wings (only surface seen). The tail had a broad bright white band equal in width of the dark terminal band. Marbled Godwit - J. Whittle June 26, 1994 Rollover Pass. Typical godwit shape and size, grayish/buffy brown. No white on rump. Slightly upturned bill, dark toward tip, pink at the base. Ten birds. Six birds documented by G. D. Luckner. Same location same date. Red Knot - J. Whittle June 26, 1994 Bolivar Flats. Plump shorebirds, larger than Sanderlings, with medium length bill. A total of 22 birds were observed. Three birds were in full alternate plumage with red breasts. Five showed breasts which were splotchy red and pale. The remainder were in gray basic plumage. Thirteen bird documented by G. D. Luckner. Same location same date. Least Sandpiper - G. D. Luckner June 26, 1994 Eight Least Sandpipers at Bolivar Flats. Very small Calidrids with relatively short, drooped, black bills and dull yellow legs. All birds appeared to be in either basic or alternate-to-basic plumage. Noticeably smaller and shorter-billed than nearby western Sandpipers. White-rumped Sandpiper - G. D. Luckner June 26, 1994 Bolivar Flats. Photographed. A medium-sized Calidrid, larger than nearby Western Sandpipers. Head and nape heavily streaked; whitish supercilium. Breast heavily streaked, with neat, black chevrons extending onto the flanks. Otherwise white below. Bill and legs black. Upperparts basically brown, fringed buffy, with some scapular feathers fringed tawny. Wings extended beyond tip of tail on the standing bird. Rump entirely white; upperside of retrices brown. Curlew Sandpiper - B. Behrstock June 25, 1994 Bolivar Flats from 9 to 10:30 am, falling tide. Photos taken. Observed from 25 to 250 feet.. A Dunlin-like shorebird similar in size and shape to one nearby alternate-plumage Dunlin. Back brownish-gray not blue gray. Back and wing feathers with dark shaft streak, margins of coverts and scapulars very narrowly pale (wear?). Crown and nape area with fine black streaks. Wings, tail, mantle all the same general color. Rump snow white, upper part of rump with a band of black speckles grading into back color. A few grayish spots on tips of outer upper tail coverts. Underparts white, under tail coverts apparently not marked. Eye, bill, legs black/. Bill deep at base, decurved and rather finely tapered, appearing laterally tapered from head on. More decurved throughout than Dunlin's bill. Bill about 1 1/2 head diameter. Supercilium white ending well above and behind the eye. A triangular dark incursion extended into the supercilium just in front of the eye. Spread wing showed a pale band. Sketch provided. Also documented by G. D. Luckner. Same location, same date. Photographed. (Short-billed) Dowitcher - J. Whittle June 26, 1994 Two birds. Typical dowitcher. Basically gray above, pale below, with a white line through the eye. Bill long, but not so long as to suggest they must be Long-billed Dowitchers. Up to three birds documented by G. D. Luckner. Same location, same date. Although all appropriate plumage characteristics for the species were noted, the birds were conclusively identified by call given when they were flushed. Dunlin - J. Whittle June 26, 1994 Bolivar Flats. Shorebird, similar in size to Sanderling, significantly smaller than Red Knot. The back was reddish with black markings. The black belly patch appeared intensely black, with the remainder of the underside pure white. The side of the head was unusually white. The bill was long with the characteristic droop at the tip. Also documented by G. D. Luckner. Same location, same date. Tharikyou ! The new computer is here and I used it to produce this issue of The Spoonbill. You may have noticed a few new capabilities while reading your copy, but major changes in presentation will not be apparent until I know what I am doing. Mike Gremillion purchased the computer and along with Dave Bradford brought it to me. Mike then decided to get out of town while I learned the program. Smart man. The new program is making my job easier and for that I thank you all. Judy Boyce, Editor
