M. Lunch at 1:00 P. M. on beach at 13 Mi. Road. Bill Harwell will be your leader. **-x-x-xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx*xxxx*xxxxxxx-x-xxxxxxxx-xxxxxx*xxxx***-x-x-x-xxxx FIELD TRIP May 12, 1962 reported by Ralph Hunter The May field trip, the "last chance" to get a good collection of migrants, succeeded admirably in its purpose under the leadership of Linda Snyder. The group met at 8:00 A. M. at the Baytown Tunnel. Present were Margaret Anderson, Clayton and Eva Gilman, Irving Greenbaum, Henry and Louise Hoffman, Ralph Hunter, Dave and Jane Marrack, Ruth Moorman, Norma Oates, Henrietta Pitchford, Mary Sears, Gene and Linda Shyder-, Harold Waggoner, and Josiephine Wilkin. Bays on the edge of the ship channel held a variety of birds including Stilt and White-rumped Sandpipers, Black-crowned Night Heron, Mottled and Shoveler Ducks, Black Tern and White Pelican. Most interesting were the Wilson's Phalaropes, which might well have been reincarnated whirling dervishes. Hundreds of Least ' Terns were seen nesting on a sandy flat. Leaving Baytown, the caravan skirted Trinity Bay to Anahuac. Short stops on the way revealed several Roseate Spoonbills, White-faced Ibis and one Cattle Egret. The pine forests just north of Anahuac were alive with bird songs. Parula, Pine and Yellowthroated Warblers, Red-eyed and White-eyed Vireos, Summer Tanager, Pileated Woodpecker and Fish Crow were seen or heard. A ramble down a shady lane led to a real find—a female BLACK-THROATED BLUE WARBLER, first identified by Henry Hoffman. The group ate lunch at Fort Anahuac Park. Here we were disappointed to find that "progress" had destroyed a dense growth, once an excellent bird habitat, on the bluff overlooking the bay. At least the marshes were still there, and Least Bittern and Green Heron were seen. The most unique find there, however, was the PURPLE-CROWNED COCKATOO (Hoffmana louisei), a rare bird indeed. LeavingvAnahuac the group saw Dickcissels, late Savannah Sparrows and Hudsonian Godwits—at close range—in the prairies and rice fields on the way to High Island. High Island lived up to its reputation as a warbler paradise; a large pecan tree was especially lively. Redstarts, Blackburnian, Black-and-white, Bay-breasted, Blackthroated Green, Magnolia, Tennessee, Yellow and Worm-eating Warblers were seen, as well as
