Transcript page 3 cation spree, pointing out in particular a dainty white orchid I've probably overlooked for years. The afternoon birding which was equally rewarding as the morning consisted of a trip to the Baytown tunnel via Lynchberg and San Jacinto Battlegrounds. A solitary late scissor-tail was predicted and found for us by Jimmie Murray along the Lynchberg Road. At the battlegrounds, a large flotilla of white pelicans lay offshore seemingly in deep thought, while avocets, Forster's terns and herons kept us busy checking off species. The backdrop of sunset set the stage for the finale of the day as we had a last bout with HORNED GREBES, clapper rails, and western sandpipers at the tunnel. Seventy odd species were observed by a satisfied group: included were the wood duek, red-shouldered hawk, red-tailed hawk, marsh hawk, kestrel, red-headed woodpecker, ring-necked duek, blue goose, snow goose, black-crowned night heron, eastern phoebe, song sparrow, white-throated sparrow, royal tern, and double-crested cormorant. Present on this field trip were the following: Jerry Baker, Josiephine Wilkin, Mr. and Mrs. J. Robert Deshayes, Hr. and Mrs. L. H. Lynch, Hr. and Hrs. Edwin Goodwin, Bess, Walter and Lee Barbare, Mary Clark, Helen and Ella Wolfer, Carolyn Simmons, Edna Miner, Darris Massingill, D. A. Deaver, Ben Feltner, Eva and Clayton Gilman, Jimmy Murray. ******* So the editor of the SPOONBILL from Dudley A. Deayers "I am a relatively new birdwatcher. I have only been active since early April of this year. I am very fortunate, however, in that my home is located at the edge of a large, heavily grassed and bushy prairie just south of Pasadena city limits off Red Bluff Road, Today I spent the early morning hours and the hours just before twilight tramping across this prairie for the first time. Sighted: 3 Sprague's pipits, a short-billed marsh wren (there are a few marshy areas in this meadow) and numerous Savannah sparrows. In the late afternoon, my companion, Trevor Feltner and I sighted a sparrow hawk on the far side of the meadow. To me this seems an excellent area. I have had kiltdeers in my back yard every since I began noticing them. Last Spring a lesser yellowlegs spent a couple of weeks in my back yeard. Trevor and I also flushed a green heron last Spring. I plan to make steady periodic check of this area, probably every weekend, and I will keep you posted. This is probably nothing exciting to experienced birders but 1 find something new almost every time I go out. Yours truly, Dudley A. Deaver ******* We find new and pleasant surprises in our back yard too. This year for the first time the yellow-bellied sapsucker visits the suet and cocoanut feeders regularly. The biggest thrill is to see that nervous little mite, iha ruby-crowned kinglet, picking up and discarding bits of hen scratch on the feeder until he comes to a piece that strikes his fancy! He is less choosy about the suet, however, and eats heartily from a sort of straddle legged stance. Seen in the open like that, he is quite brilliantly colored and often shows the ruby crown. ******* CLEARING HOUSE: 4 Nashville warblers, great horned Are still around and very Some avocets are seen October 29 Seen by Ben Feltner east of Galena Park: owl, and solitary vireo. November 9 Two house wrens seen by Hoffmans in their yard, much at home. Austin Evans reports seeing an osprey at Freeport every day. November 11 The Barbares report the following seen at McGregor Parks downy and red- bellied woodpeckers, 12 yellow-shafted flickers, chickadee, blue-gray gnat catcher, tufted titmouse, hermit thrush, pine warbler. In the wooded area just east of the University of Houston: ruby-erowned kinglets, Nashville warbler, kestrel, brown thrasher. Seen by the Stricklings on a circuit out Hemorial and around Sugarland;
