Learning Corner: VOLUNTEER PLEASE! The ONG needs someone to coordinate the Learning Corner for future meetings. Please call David Sarkozi to volunteer. Chairman's Message David Sarkozi The Chairman's Message will return in April. Beginning Birding Identification, Learn What to Expect by Season Don Richardson By now, we have certainly shown how grouping birds with similar attributes can be a wonderful aid to identification. We looked at grouping birds that are closely genetically related when we studied certain genera of hawks and found that we could group them by finding similar behavioral and appearance characteristics. We then examined birds living in similar habitats and were able to establish groups of those. For example, we learned to expect a particular group of birds in a wet prairie and a different group in a dry one. Now, let's see what time in the year birds are present. We'll see that we have winter, summer and permanent residents, and migrants. Learning what birds should be present at various times gives us a much smaller list of "expected" birds. Learning what birds are just migrants, and which live here in winter, summer, or permanently, is a great start. As we saw with habitats, there are some subtleties to consider. With these subtleties we can refine our knowledge ofthe timing of birds and by using this timing information, we can further help ourselves with the identification process. The UTC (Upper Texas Coast) is famous for its spring migration. In fact, I have met many birders who only go birding in April. Of course, they are missing a lot. Birding on the UTC is good somewhere in any month ofthe year. Usually, I think of spring migration as a period of time from mid March to mid May. Several of our shorebirds migrate earlier than this. Knowing which birds migrate through the UTC and when, is helpful in shrinking our list of possibilities. Just knowing that a bird is a migrant can be helpful, but knowing when the bird migrates can be of even more help. The northward movement of Passeriformes (the
