Transcript VOLUME XI No. 14 JUNE 1963 faa The singing of birds at night, by * its very incongruity, always awakens * our interest. The European Night- * ingale has been lauded since ancient * times because of its nocturnal out- * bursts, but it is not alone in this * habit. Aside from the Owls and Whip- * poor-wills, that one naturally ex- * pects to be active at night, one may * hear during the height of the mating * season, the song of almost any bird * ringing out on the night air as * though the songster could not restrain * himself. Yellow-breasted Chats are * particularly noisy at night, and, on * the marshes, the Wrens, the Rails, * and the Gallinules seem to take on * renewed activity when darkness falls. * The Mockingbird of our southern ♦ states is said to do its finest ♦ singing on moonlight nights. ♦ The Book of Bird Life-- Arthur A. ****** ******** Allen * ** * ~ PUBLISHED "Br THE~ ORNITHOLOGY GkOUfr, OUTDOOR NATURE CLUB, HOUSTON, TEXAS FORTHCOMING EVENTS June 23 (Sunday) 0. G. Field Trip to South Jefferson County (Beaumont Area). Meet at 10:00 AM at intersection Highway 90 and FM 364, Community of Amelia, Southeast of Beaumont city limits. Leaders: Dr. and Mrs. W. J. Graber, Director of T.O.S. Region 8. Due to the extremely hot weather in July there will be no 0. G. Field Trip. RENDEZVOUS WITH A SWALLOW-TAILED KITE Margaret Anderson When a friend (non-O.G. member) told me she had seen a Swallow-tailed Kite on Fondren Road on May 12th 1 at once made plans to try to see it. On May 14th Mrs. L. A. M. Barnette and 1 were out on Fondren Road at 9 AM. When we approached the lake "our" Kite rose up from the trees on the east of the road, sailed around for about a minute and disappeared over the trees again. Despite our excitement we both had time to see the white underparts and head, the dark upperparts and, most of all, that unusual tail. We decided he was just waiting for us and we surely were happy we had kept that rendezvous. As a lagniappe we saw six Red-shouldered Hawks circling together, two of them screaming. We saw the Kite at a distance of about 50-60 feet in a hazy sunlight. Who would ever have thought I would see a bird that only Arlie McKay and Linda Snyder have reported here in recent years?
