Transcript r °l\e §POO^BIIX Published by the Ornithology Group, Outdoor Nature Club Hmiston, Texas B. C. Robison, editor Vol. XXXV, No. 2 February, 1986 C*ttvif%£ Evi+J* Monday, March 3, 1986: Deadline for Clearing House reports. Thursday, March 6, 1986: Ornithology Group meeting at Bayou Manor, 4141 S. Braeswood, 7:30 PM. Gene Blacklock of the Welder Wildlife Refuge will present Part II of "The Sane Approach to Bird Identification." Deadline for Spoonbill articles and announcements. Saturday, March 8, 1986: Ornithology Group Field Trip to Attwater Prairie Chicken NWR. Jim Morgan will be our leader. Expect to hear the dawn "booming" and see the courtship display of the Attwater's form of the Greater Prairis Chicken, one of the most interesting displays in the bird world. Numerous Hawks, including the White-tailed, can be observed in the area. Jim says it may be a little late for some sparrows, but there should be several species. To reach the refuge take Interstate 10 West to Sealy, exit at Hwy. 36 and head south a short distance to FM 3013, turn right on 3013 and proceed to the refuge just beyond the San Bernard River on the right. Meet at 7:00 AM just off 3013 on the entrance road. We meet here so that refuge personnel can direct us to the chicken lek with a minimum of habitat disturbance. Bring lunch for an all-day trip. Tuesday, March 11, 1986: Outdoor Nature Club meeting, 7:30 PM, Garden Center, Hermann Park. Jennifer Lindgren of Austin will speak on the National Wildflower Research Center. ELMNS CHECKLIST The Edith L. Moore Nature Sanctuary is updating its bird checklist. If any of you have records of your birding trips to the sanctuary please send copies to Stan Perkins, ELMNS, 440 Wil- chester, Houston, TX 77079. SPRING CREEK CHRISTMAS BIRD COUNT The fifth Spring Creek C.B.C. was held January 4th. The count had nine more observers than last year. On this cloudless, virtually windless seventy-six degree Saturday participants tallied three fewer species than last year (86), but observed a 750% increase in total number of individuals. This increase was due in large part to an abundant wild food crop and a phenomenal number of American Robins (25,224), including a roost estimated at sixteen thousand birds in the bottomlands'along the San Jacinto River in Montgomery County. Thirteen species were in higher than usual numbers including Red-cock- aded Woodpecker (13), Brown-headed Nuthatch (88), Yellow-rumped Warbler and American Goldfinch. Only two species were in lower than expected numbers. Unusual finds on the count were a Black-and-White Warber along Kuyken- dahl Road by Liz McCarty and a Greater Scaup on Lake Woodlands by Gary Clark. Several parties of intrepid nocturnal birders managed to out-owl even the prestigious Freeport count and, as a result, all four of southeast Texas' common owl species were recorded for the first time. Many thanks from the Piney Woods Wildlife Society to all those who participated in our count.
