Birds displayed a rich tawny head and underparts; dark back and wings; long gray legs; grayish colored bill; distinct white stripes on sides below folded wings. Observed from a distance of 30 yards with 10x50 binocs in excellent light. — Derek Muschalek Greater Scaup: These birds were observed while feeding at Shoveler Pond at ANWR. They were in a mixed flock with a number of Lesser Scaup and other common species. The birds were observed at about 175 feet with a 10 x 50 scope for about 15 minutes. The birds had near white flanks and grey backs. There was a distinct line between the white flanks and the black breast, neck, and head. The bill was grey/green. The head was distinctly rounded, not peaked. The Lesser Scaup around them provided a means of comparing the head angle. In flight the 2 birds showed a white stripe out through the primaries. —John McGeough Stilt Sandpiper: Two winter-plumaged individuals in close association with 5-10 dowitchers in flooded field at Katy-Hockley Cut-Off Rd. and Logenbaugh Rd.; approx. 1/3 smaller overall size than dowitchers; slimmer look; mostly unpatterned gray upperparts; white underparts except for light grayish wash on sides of upper breast; slight line over eye but hardly noticeable; bill close to 2 inches in length with slight droop at tip, distinctly shorter and thinner than the dowitchers' bills; both birds fed by rapid probing in water almost belly-deep; legs never seen nor were the birds seen in flight; no calls; 10 x 50 binocs from 25-30 meters for 5 minutes in excellent light. —Randy Pinkston Greater Roadrunner: Large bird, heavily streaked with very long tail. I surprised the bird which was taking water out of a bar ditch in W. Harris Co. The bird quickly ran into the hedgerow and could not be relocated. Seen with naked eye at 20 ft in excellent light for one or possibly two seconds. —Jim Morgan Buff-bellied Hummingbird: Bird was heard first, from open patio door, feeding on salvia beside patio. Stayed in the yard for approx. 30 min. feeding at coral honeysuckle, salvia and shrimp plants. Did not approach feeders. All marks seen clearly with 9 x 36 Bushnell; brown tail, green throat, buff belly, orange bill with dark tip. Loud, squeaky notes heard several times. — Mary Ann Moore Scissor-tailed Flycatcher: While driving through Ft. Bend Co. near Needville (2 miles N of town) I noticed the distinctive silhouette of. a Scissor-tailed Flycatcher perched on a utility wire along the road side. I turned around and went back to the bird and noted the following: Large flycatcher with extremely long tail, nearly two times its body length. Crown, nape, back gray. Pale gray to whitish throat and
