Transcript Page 6 IV) MISCELLANEOUS IBFORMATIOB A) Contributors to the first volume of the Handbook include such prominent ornithologists as RoberbP. Allen, Oliver L. Austin, Jr., Eugene Eisenmann, Pauline James, Roger Tory Peterson, A. W. Schorger, and Robert W. Storer. Note: A considerable amount of literature by innumerable other authorities is also cited in the Handbook. B) Descriptions of the general characteristics for all 5 orders and 15 families are included in the Handbook. C) The Handbook of North American Birds - Volume I sells for $15.00 and may be ordered from the Service Dept. of the Bational Audubon Society, 1130 Fifth Ave., New York 28, N. Y. Copies are also available at the Houston Public Library (McKinney and Smith)-for reference purposes only (i.e., may not be borrowed) - and at Rice University's Fondren Library. D) The initial volume of the Handbook series consists of 577 pages of text, maps, and drawings plus 6 color plates and a 2-page-spread color chart. ************************************ SIXTH ANNUAL FREEPORT CHRISTMAS CEBSUS Dec. 23, 1962 compiled by Victor L. Emanuel Freeport continued its series of spectacularly successful counts, which has been marred only by last year's Carla-induced slump to 134 species, by springing back with a whopping record-breaking 158 species count. The previous record high count for Freeport was 1960's 150 species total. This year there were 12 observers in 4 parties. An unusually large number of species which are rare in the area at this time of the year were reported including a Western Kingbird, three Cinnamon Teal, a Kentucky Warbler, three Parula Warblers (all singing in the woods across from the gun club), an unusually high count of Palm Warblers (ll - two parties), a Knot, a black phases Rouge-legged Hawk, and a Red-throated Loon. These bonuses were partially offset by our failure to find a number of expected species including Bobwhite, Sora Rail, Semipalmated Plover, Cooper's Hawk, Screech Owl, Bufflehead, Bald Eagle, Common Loon, Sharp-shinned Hawk, Red-headed Woodpecker, Brown Pelican and Roseate Spoonbill. Freeport's future is bright. For several years it has produced more birds per observer than any of the top twenty counts in the U.S. With more observers and a few lucky breaks Freeport -will break 180 within the next five years.
