Transcript _br__ VOLUME aa, r«o. 6 December, iy/1 PUBIISHED BY THE CKMTPOI UGYOROUP, 00T!XX)K NATURE CI.IB, HOUSTON, T-XAS WKST-KN KINGBIRDS Nr.ST IN HAHHIS COUNT)! by Wallace C. Mebane, Jr. The nest was five and a hall" feet high in a live oak tree near a barn. It was first discovered in June of 19/1 by Kildred Ann Tippette, wife of uiles Tipette, local author of The 3ank Robber and The Trojan Cow. I saw the nest, two miles wast of the nouston city limits, on July 4th. lt contained four young biros with white, oowny feathers. Both adult birds were seen going to and from the nest and feeding the youne. on July 11 the feathers on the four young birds had turned to gray. Only three young were seen on Julv 15 and 1/. The youne, left the nest July 1/, Tne young had white outer £ail feathers, Krs Tippette reported the adults and young were last seen on July In, Other observers wore Dr. Steve Williams, Karia Williams, Lyvonda Mebane and Wallace C. F.eban© III, YELLOW RAIL TRIPS Russel w. Clapper, Manager of Anahuac National wildlife Refuge, has Informed us that ne does not plan to schedule lellow Hail trips until Karch and April, iv:r. Clapper, in his announcement, said "There are two main reasons for this. Pall and winter trips have not been as successful, A,lso we are on a tight budget, and the Bureau is faced with a cut in manpower. To keep our cost-benefit ratio up, we will try to show the most people rails with the least number of trips," Luring the spring migration birders also see several rail species in addition to the Yellow Rail, DATA ON 1970 FR_i.P0R1 fcOU-TON CHRISTMAS COUNTS -omriied by Noel j-ettingeli (-ources American Birds, April, 1971 The following list indicate s just how important it is that all observers record each and every individual of even the most common species at all tiwes and in every area covered within the Christmas .Count circle. There were 902 North -merican reports published for the 1970-71 count period and a total of 561 specie* recorded by some 15,000 observers— including those m tne .<reeport and nouston counts, wnose efforts resulteo in a combined total of 25 apeeiss with highest individual counts in North America, So even though there may be some parties or areas which don't happen to come up with "exclusive" -species, every participant in the freeport/nouston counts can at least have the satisfaction of knowir.s: that he or she has personally contributed to individual totals for species which will be included in the list of the highest for the entire continent, of coarse we never know which species recorded on freeport or nouston counts will, wind up "No. 1" until all the reports are published—usually with some surprising result*, like when Freeport produced the nation's only Groove-billed ani (i.e., a single bird) in 19671 According to the April, 1V71, Christmas on»nt issue of A____tJMa__B__f_ds, the highest individual count for the ..astern Phoebe was 153 at Coc^a, Fla., but at least two areas exceeded this total, viz,, Freeport, Texas, with 164, and -<est Palm Beaeh, Fla., with 162. A further check rovealed that .the 1963 all-time hi.h North Ar-erican liastern phoebe count of 166 credited to Fort Lauderdale, Fla. in "Audubon .ieid botes'', April. *"64, was exceeded in the 1961 count by Houston's 192 (A.F.N, listed Gainesville, Florida's 152 as the highest total for 19^1,
