LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Dear Ed: Because of my father's bad health I have been in the field very little since July 29. Carla brought a Sooty Tern to my mailbox, dead, Sept. 13, and Arnold McKay saw another dead and two live ones. While the wind was high, I saw a hummingbird land on the ground and feed on a fallen Althea flower. Carl Fitzgerald, who has a ranch near East bay, saw more Mallards Sept. 16 than ever before in September, and more Shovelers than at any time ever before. Many have commented on the abundance of Mottled ducks. In mid-October, S. L. Griffith twice saw an Albino Roadrunner. Arlie K. McKay Editor's Note: Arlie reports some interesting sightings for the three day period beginning with "Carla" through Oct. 13, as follows: (3) Mag. Frigate birds, (l) Fulvous tree duck, (46) King Rails. Dear Spoonbills: Oct. 29, 1961 Nancy and I counted 442 Cattle Egret flying into a roost today at Sundown. It is located 6J miles-north of West Columbia in Brazoria, Texas. We also estimated 1500 White Ibis flew into the same roost. An estimated 2,000 swallows passed over in the lj hours we were there. (After looking at ome of them at 30' perched on a wire, I have concluded that Fall swallows (some) are difficult to distinguish.) I thought they were mostly Rough-winged. When perched, we discovered they were about 50$ immature Tree swallows. Beware of quick identification of R.W. and T. swallows in the Fall. Also saw (among the 2,000) about 500 Barn swallows, 2 Scissor-tailed flycatchers 1 Bittern, and 1 Horned owl. Jerry and Nancy Strickling
