Transcript Volume XXIII, No. 7 November, 1974 PUBLISHED BY THE ORNITHOLOGY GROUP. OUTDOOR NATURE CLUB. HOUSTON. TEXAS ARLIE MCKAY INJURED IN ACCIDENT It was distressing to learn that our "Bird Man from Cove", Mr. Arlie McKay, was injured in an accident recently while driving In a funeral procession. His car was struck by a party who didn't realize there was a procession. Some broken ribs and a broken collar bone are keeping him homebound these days, so the birds in the Cove area are not being monitored for awhile. We all wish him well and hope for a speedy recovery. Mr. McKay's address is Route 2, Box 184, Baytown, Texas 77520. FALL MIGRATION STUDY Mr. Henry M. Stevenson, Department of Biological Science, Florida State University, is doing a quantitative study of fall migration, and the fall issues of the SPOONBILL are being sent to him at the request of Margaret Anderson, whom Mr. Stevenson had contacted for information on sightings in the Texas coastal region. The Clearing House provides information that can be of interest to many people other than our regular members and subscribers, so remember to send your sightings to Dan Hardy, editor of the Clearing House, at the end of each month. PEREGRINE FALCONS RESCUED Chester Rogers, in his column in the Baytown Sun of October 18, 1974, reports that three Baytown men, fishing near Smith Point, noticed a bunch of hawks floating in the water, trying to swim like they were ducks or sea gulls. They used a dip net to lift the stricken birds out of the water, for a hawk, like a lot of birds not used to water, finds it difficult to handle wet feathers. They picked up about eight of the soaked peregrine falcons and headed back to the landing place at Robbins Park. They put the birds out on the ground and they started trying to dry out the wings. Six of the birds made it to nearby brush and flew away. One apparently died of exhaustion and another, with a broken wing, died of a heart attack. The trio would have picked up more, the desperate hawks fought valiantly to flee this strange boat filled with men. If it was exhaustion after a long migratory flight, that landed them in the bay, one wonders at the strange quirk of fate that allowed them to pass over land between the Gulf and the Bay. The incident was reported 'to Texas Parks and Wildlife, reports of this Incident? Does anyone know of any other For the paSt three years volunteers have assisted Texas Parks and Wildlife biologists in making a Peregrine Falcon check to determine the status of the peregrine. This year the check started Sept. 25, and ended Oct. 25. Each year's sighting will be compared with the last to see if peregrine numbers are declining, increasing, or remaining stable. ' '■*&' RARE BIRD ALERT Margaret Anderson report's there has been no rare bird call since the Glaucous Gull at Bolivar. However, when Wesley Cureton reported recently seeing 11 Black-bellied Tree Ducks at Warren Lake, it was certainly unusual enough to be put out on the Alert. Remember, this is the beginning of the season to check out Warren Lake and the Katy- Hockley area when you want to get out and bird in the western part of the county. And Sheldon Reservoir is an excellent place to go for the next few months, in the eastern part of the county.
