Transcript NORTH AMERICAN MIGRATION COUNT UPDATE The Third Annual North American Migration Count (NAMC) was held on May 14 and 15,1994. As in Christmas Bird Counts, the NAMC can be held on either one of two days, but birds are tallied in an entire county rather than in a 15-mile diameter circle. The NAMC was primarily designed to get a one-day snapshot of migration and early breeding season distribution of birds in North America. In the 1993 NAMC, Texas placed first in total species (392), second in most counties participating (51), first in most species for one county (193 in Calhoun County), and fourth in most participants (424). As of July 1,1994, 53 Texas counties have reported 378 species observed by 413 participants—very close to last year's results. I can still report data that was not part of an organized county survey for either May 14th or 15th, 1994. Data must include total individuals of each species observed party-miles and party-hours by foot, car, etc. Individual efforts may add additional species and may expand coverage for the state. Send data to: Brent Ortego, 202 Camino Drive, Victoria, Texas 77901. (512/572-9848) A common complaint about the NAMC is that it is too late to count the majority of migrants. This is true for Texas, but not for the United States. Mid-May is generally optimum for the middle latitude states. However, it does not mean birding is bad. Major migrant fallouts have been recorded as late as May 15. If you can tolerate the insects, heat and humidity, the birding is quite good. As with most major birding efforts, unusual observations turn up when you place hundreds of birders afield My litmus test to judge the level of migration in an area is the number of shorebird and warbler specie- reported. During the NAMC, Texas reported 39 species of shorebirds and 34 species of warblers. All expected shorebirds were found except Northern Jacana and Ruff. Most species of warblers were observed except a few missed in east and west Texas. While numbers of individual migrants are low, almost all species are represented. The 393 species reported last year and the 378 species reported to date for 1994, are testaments to that fact The North American Migration Count is a relatively new nationwide bird survey.
