Transcript Page 6 Santa Ana (Friday & Saturday) - Our party arrived at Santa Ana just in tiSe~¥6~iee Chachalaeas, Kiskadees, Least Grebes, Green Jays (we even caught several whieh had flown into an open cage and could not escape), two Great Horned Owls, and a Sereeeh Owl. Parties whieh visited this reftag* Friday afternoon reported as many as five Liohtensteln's and Black-headed Orioles. Also the Black-bellied Tree Ducks were seen by several parties at Montgomary's Raneh and a Ruddy Ground Dove and Olive-backed Warblers were reported later from Santa Ana. Saturday was the main field trip to Santa Ana but the strong north winds either drove the Liohtensteln's Orioles into the brush or across the border because only a Black-headed Oriole was seen. Santa Ana Is probably the most tropical-looking part of the Valley and while sitting around the refuge headquarters, watching Green Jays, Kiskadees, and White-fronted Doves, it is not hard to imagin you are far south of the border. Some of the common birds seen included Myrtle Warblers (very abundant), Clay-colored Sparrows, White-crowned Sparrows, Yellow-shafted Flicker, Yellow-throated Warbler, Orange-crowned Warbler, Black-&-White Warbler, Blue-headed Vireo, White-collared Seedeaters, Common Goldfinch, Verdin, Least Grebes, Gray Hawk, many Robins and Cedar Waxwings (in unusual numbers for the Valley), Grain had been scattered along the road near the headquarters to attract the Chachalaeas, This stretch of road is one of the most amazing parts of the refuge with its lush vegetation of semi- tropical trees, almost forming a complete canopy. Late in the evening it was fascinating to sit near a bend in the road and watch a dozen or more Chachalaeas feeding. These are truly birds of the shadows as they dart in and out of the brush. The last thought I have of this locality is the tall palm trees silhoueted against the fiery sunset, Other_areas- At Brownsville we added White-neeked Ravens and at a resaca near~5an Benito we saw White-collared Seedeaters, Chachalaeas, a Redstart, Wilson's Warblers, Parula Wajrbler, dark phase of the Swainson's Hawk, and the biggest find for this area, a Bay-breasted Warbler. In a field near San Benito we added a Burrowing Owl and the O.G. scope enabled us to see the red eyes on a large floek mt Red-eyed Cowbirds near Santa Ana. Saturday night we enjoyed a splendid banquet In San Benito, followed by an interesting film on the Blaek-bellied Tree Duck by R. V. Montgomery and one on the Whooping Crane and the Greenland Gyrfalcon. Sunday morning we left a frost nipped valley to return via Rockport and Aransas Refuge. At Rockport, Mr. Hagar told us that his wife had seen two Cattle Egrets that morning at Rattlesnake Point, but we were unable to locate them or the Whistling Swans reported about a week earlier on Aransas Refuge. Of the multitude of vivid memories and experiences of this Valley excursion the most pleasant is tantalizing Santa Ana, where one feels, as he should in the Valley, that he is truly In the tropics. ******* ****** MEMBERS OF THE ORNITHOLOGY Aiken, Carl, ITT ~~ ~ Ainsworth, Mrs. Wm„ H.
