Transcript "} Kt_-a VOLUME XVII, NO. 1 May, 1968 THE WONDERS OF MIGRATION!! - that singular phenomenon of seasonal movement of almost every species of birds, from the artic terns who fly at least 25,000 miles each year, to the song sparrows, blue jays, and meadow larks whose migration is so slight as to be almost impossible to detect, to the smaller varieties travelling across expanses of water as passengers on the backs and wings of larger birds, to the tiny ruby-throated hummingbird regularly crossing the Gulf of Mexico in a single non-stop flight of more than 500 miles! PUBLISHED BY THE ORNITHOLOGY GROUP. OUTDOOR NATURE CLUB. HOUSTON, TEXAS THE BIG DAY RUN. APRIL 28, I968 20+ Parties and 45+ Observers Dr. David Marrack, our Co-ordinator, gives us the following preliminary account of the results: "The Big Day Count of the 28th of April was a success in spite of poor climatic cooperation, the lack of wind and serious mist, keeping birds from moving. The "front" came in a day too late. All reports have not been received. Nevertheless, the count to date (May 7th), shows some 225 species seen. A number of unusual birds were seen, on these: The following is an incomplete commentary The most exciting find was that of a Ruff (seen by Party "P") on Galveston Isle and seen again the following day, as was the other "find" a Glaucous Gull (Party »D") f'T"J, seen on Bolivar Peninsula. Black (Party "P") and. Yellow Rails (Party "N") were seen by separate parties. Waders were not numerous but the Stilt, White-rumped and Baird's were seen. Bob Moore reports a Prairie Chicken and geese. Several parties reported Brown-headed Nuthatch, Red-cockaded Woodpecker, Bachman's Sparrow and Caracara. Warblers provided scattered sightings but most species were identified by two or more parties, but none appear to have had large numbers. Flycatchers were also spotty, only one Least being reported. Joe Heiser found the only Olive-sided and Vermilion. A Yellow-bellied Sapsucker stayed around for the Barnettes and the Red-cockaded was seen by two parties. -Other surprises were, Roseate Tern (Party "B"), American Goldfinch (Party "B'), Bobolink, Loon and Red-headed Duck (Party "P"),an Audubon and Myrtle Warblers by the Washburns, Frigatebird By Dr. Graber, your Co-ordinator enjoyed a Great Horned Owl with two young about three weeks old. Arlie McKay had a Hudsonian Godwit "fixed", - Marbled,and Fulvous Treeduck were not reported. Is this a further warning? It is anticipated that the full tabulation will appear in the next Spoonbill.
