Transcript VOLUME XXII, NO. 3 JULY, 1973 PUBLISHED BY TM ORv-TPTiiOLOGY GROUP, OUTDOOR MaTUR-I CLUB, HOUSTON,TEXAS THE OG LOSES A VALUED MEMBER We all deeply regret the recent death of Maxine Wenger, a former editor of the "Spoonbill", an enthusiastic birder, and a good friend of so many of us in the OG. Maxine, an accomplished musician, a member of a number of clubs, was always ready to give of herself to any of their endeavors to which she was called. We remember with gratitude and pleasure the program on bird songs she and Dorothy Lefkovits gave a year ago. The OG joins her family in mourning for a lovely and gallant lady. THE DRY TORTUGAS - by Norma Oates What could be more exciting, early on a June morning, than watching a White-tailed Tropicbird circle a dozen times over a "flock of birders' who had just landed on the Dry TortugasJ On nearby Bush Island - a bird sanctuary - many Sooty Terns and a smaller number of Brown Noddy Terns were nesting. Roseate Terns were also seen in flight over the islands. The activity around the nesting colony was Intense and the noise constant. Perched in the low brush back of the nesting terns were numerous Magnificent Frigate-birds, one immature Brown Booby and a few Brown Pelicans, During the morning we checked a row of Brown Noddy Terns perched on an ancient dock back of old Fort Jefferson, A Brown Booby joined the row of Noddies and about mid-day 3 Black Noddies joined the group. Several scopes were in use at the time and the difference in size and color of the Brown Noddy and Black Noddy could be seen clearly. During the day there were always from 20 to 60 Magnificent Frigate- birds slowly soaring overhead and at one time Margaret Louise Hill (who had flown to Key West from Austin) spotted one bird showing its large bright crimson gular sac, Other Texans on this trip were Doris and Bill Wyman from Port Lavaca and Ex-Texans Polly and Dwight Lee formerly of El Paso but now living in Winston-Salem, N.C. On the return trip to Key West the weather was stormy - including one distant waterspout - so the captain was unable to swing out into the Gulf stream for our expected pelagics and only one of the rare Bridled Terns was spotted. CONTINUING SAGA OF THE RINGED TURTLE DOVES - Margaret Jones In the May Spoonbill Paul and Margaret Jones reported,two Ringed Turtle Doves in their back yard in April, with several sightings in the neighborhood on subsequent days. It has been recently learned that there are five or six of these birds in this, neighborhood, but . so far, no confirmation of nesting. Following is an excerpt from one of Hazel Green's columns in the Wimberley Mill that we found interesting: "This Spring, on Tuesday, April 24, a Dove flew down in the Dave Crumley's back yard and.almost met its "Waterloo". It chose the wrong time and place, because ruling the yard then was a Game hen with
