Transcript 2-' 53 ifesa VOLUME XVIV, No. 9 Janauary 1971 PUBLISHED BY THE ORHITHOLOGY GROUP, OUTDOOR HATURE CLUB, HOUSTON, TEXAS OBSERVATIONS FOR THE SPOONBILL by G. W. Page III My wife and I were down three miles east of Daribury in Brazoria County watching hordes of ducks and geese flood the sky. We were some 200 yds from a large flock of geese (snows, blues, and white-fronts), about 1200 in all. But segregated from the geese were 40 large sandhill cranes feeding in the fresh cut rice fields. Very alert birds and large in contrast to the geese. While we were watching we had the great pleasur# of spotting a pair of Peregrine Falcons spiraling overhead. They were harassing a large flock of Red-winged Blackbirds. More playing than harm. As we watched them I couldn't help but have an empty feeling inside, thinking that some da£ these birds may be mere pictures in a book like the Great Auk, Passengrer Pigein, and Labrador Duck, But seeing them that day made me feel that they are truly worth saving. We made these observations on Dee, 19. FALCONRY LAWS; Oklahoma has recently passed a falconry law which permits hunting of resident game in Oklahoma with any hawk, oul, or non-North Ameriean eagle by anyone having a valid $10.00, license, A licensed person may have 3 birds of prey and even a 12 year old may have one bird if he can pass the test and is ppensored by an adult licensee, These birds must be from out of state, so which state is going to suffer the loss of these birds, many of which are on the endangered list? What about the peregrine Falcon trapping on Padre Island? TEIEVISION Recently t ere have been several good programs on television pertaining to the conditions of our environment and the depredations on our wildlife. On the other hand a movie has been advertised on television in which there seems to be little else but killing of wildlife, a film on "Sport", We noticed Ray Miller's remark on his TV program "Eyes of Texas" Sunday night, January 10, that the Prairie dog had outlived its usefulness. NEWS FROM BOIIVAR PENINSULA by Bessie G. Cornelius It is encouraging to see people bying for aluminum cans at the Bolivar Dump, Twice, in driving through, we saw station wagons piled high with empty boxes and being filled in short order. Ironically, however, it seems the Commissioners decided it was a good idea to go in with bulldozers and cover the debris at this time. GoodGood birds on Bolivar Peninsula during the past two or three weeks were; IMMATURE OSPREY between High Island and Gilchrist on Beach Road. At the Bolivar Dump a beautiful Rough-legged Hawk has taken up residence, usually perched just east ef the dump in some low eprubby trees or shrubs. Seen two weeks in a row. For a Whimbrel take first road north that goes ts i Bay a few blocks west of the Bridge (Rollover Pass) in Gilchrist (the corner has a small green house on the north side appropriately named Mosquito Ranch), A good many Long-billed Curlews on w£st side of the road but among them one and perhaps tws Whimbrels, Hope this cold snap didn't drive them off„ SHORT-STOPPING from Texas Parks and Wildlife News Federal and state wildlife refuges in three central states are preventing one-third of the Central and Mississippi Flyway goose population from migrating, and these hirds could j_ery easily be wiped out by an epidemic of waterfowl diseases, according to the,Jtxaa;Parks and Wildlife Department.
