Transcript flock probably represented the southernmost extent of the entire species in California - and the world! With sighs of relief (Ethel knew I'd be hard to live with on the way back home if I had missed a good look at this species!),| we headed back over the mountains to Santa Barbara and Tucson, having detoured some 60 miles and an hour and a half for the sake of a bird...

The maximum at Yuma, 57 mi. east of El Centro, was 106 that day - 105 at 6 PM, when we passed through, and only one degree less at 7PM!

CAN-Y CREEK ESTATES, SARGENT. TEXAS Charlotte Johnson The grove of trees here are the last betore reaching the Gulf which is about 2 miles away. The sudden blow of Friday, August 7th, dumped 5 inches of rain here as it went inland. On Monday, August 10, at 4:30 PM, I found the following in one old trees female Oriole, Yellow-throated Warbler, Black and White Warbler, Yellow Warbler, Yellow-breasted Flycatcher, Eastern Kingbird, Blue-Gray Gnat- catcher, Yellow-billed Cuckoo (which nests here), and CarolinaChickadee. In a field near by were Upland and Black-bellied Plovers. The next morning at 7 I found a mature Mississippi Kite sitting in a dead tree.
