Transcript VOLUME XVII, NO. 9 January, 1969 3 If you are taken with status symbols (a new car, a large house, stylish clothes, a fine lawn), there is one status symbol that is not in the advertisements but may mean more than all the rest in terms of an enjoyable, livable community—the birds that choose to reside with you. —from BIRDS IN OUR LIVES PUBLISHED BY THE ORNITHOLOGY GROUP. OUTDOOR NATURE CLUB. HOUSTON. TEXAS RARE BIRD ALERT During the latter part of December and the first of January four species were reported to the Rare Bird Alert; PURPLE SANDPIPER: (The following information was submitted by Noel Pettingell): December 28, 1968, first identified by Vic Emanuel (Freeport Christmas Count) while watching a Ruddy Turnstone at about 1:00 P. M. at end of Quintana (south) Jetty protecting Freeport Harbor. Vic's companion Keith Arnold, also identified the bird at this time (with scope) and Joe Farrell and I studied both birds from about 2:00 to 2:15 P. M. The Purple Sandpiper was very similar to the plate in Peterson's Guide (Plate 32) except that the eye ring appeared to be less pronounced (at least in my opinion). December 29, 1968, Purple Sandpiper seen by Steve Williams at Quintana Jetty. (I don't know if anyone else saw the bird Sunday, December 29th or not). December 30, 1968, Purple Sandpiper seen by Norma Oates (and photographed), Margaret Anderson and her husband Wilmer and son Robert), and Josiephine Wilkin (she also photographed it) near base of Quintana Jetty (bird later flew to North Jetty on other side of Freeport Harbor Channel). I have no information on December 31 sightings. January 1, 1969, Purple Sandpiper seen by Harvey Patten at Quintana Jetty, also seen by Mrs. S. T. Wier and Mrs. Betty Cornelius of Beaumont. I have no information on January 2 or 3 sightings of the Purple Sandpiper. January 4, 1969, Purple Sandpiper photographed by John Tveten at Quintana Jetty. Also seen by his wife Gloria, Jack and Peggy Smith, and Sarah Gordon, Sharon and Levy Davis, Pat Ridge and Dan Hardy. Previous Records: The Hypothetical Section of the Check-List of the Birds of the Central Coast of Texas 1962. by Congar N. Hager and Fred M. Packard states: "One report in I878, almost certainly erroneous." - Roger Tory Peterson in A Field Guide to the Birds of Texas Page 270, states: "Purple Sandpiper, Erolia maritima 8-9.. Rock- feeding habits, portly build, and rather junco-like coloration, with slate-gray back and breast, white belly, are good field marks. Important points are short yellow legs, whitish eye-ring, yellow base of bill. Very tame. (Artie. Winters along coasts of H. Atlantic.) Bird photographed in color by R. Bentley and C. E. Hall, Galveston, Dec, 4, 5. 1953- Possible sight records at Lake Dallas, Tyler. JACANA (zha'sa nS) (Portugese) so says Webster as to pronounciation: This bird was first seen recently by Dennis Shepler and a companion at the Brazoria National Wildlife Refuge. (Dennis is a student at A. AM.). It was reported on the Rare Bird Alert on January 4.
