AUGUST FIELD TRIP REPORT by Robert Thacker Twenty-six OG members met at Freeport to spend a ten-hour birding day concentrating on shorebirds. The group birded the Freeport Marshes, Bryan Beach, and then, after lunch, went on to the Brazoria National Wildlife Refuge. The highlight of the day was . the abundance of Wood Storks at Brazo- 'ria. The area was very dry and most of the ponds had dried up. Yet where there was water available the wading and shore- birds were concentrated in large num bers. Each large pond had several hundred wading birds packed in together. This concentration was most evident at the Brazoria Refuge where one large flock of 100 or more Wood Storks mixed with about 50 Spoonbills. Suddenly, this giant flock of Wood Storks and Spoonbills became airborne and mixed, wheeling and turning in a medley of black and white and pink that everyone on the outing will long remember. The group saw 89 species with only about 30 minutes spent looking for passerines at the Big Slough. Twenty- three species of shorebirds and fourteen species of wading birds were observed. This shows one can have a great day even in August, and even without looking for warblers I At the Freeport Marshes numerous herons, egrets and ibis were observed and an Osprey was found perched on a pole. At Bryan Beach Stennie Meadours found two very early Bonaparte's Gulls on one of the large spoil reservoirs. Also at Bryan Beach, Wilson's, Piping and Semipalmated Plovers were observed, and the group picked up several Seaside Sparrows. During lunch at Quintana Park three Magnificent Fri- gatebirds flew over. The Brazoria Refuge yielded a Black-shouldered Kite, a Northern Harrier, and more shorebirds including Pectoral Sandpipers, Wilson's Phalarope and Stilt Sandpiper. fhe group ended the day at the Big Slough. Special thanks to Tom Taroni of Lake Jackson for providing the key to the Brazoria Refuge and assisting Stennie Meadours and myself with the leadership of the trip.
