Transcript January Clearing House beak and feet. Light brown feathering on upper legs. Tail evenly barred, light gray. In flight, wings taper to sharp points typical of falcon. Tail long, flared to rounded, broad tip in swooping flight. Observed for about 30 minutes in diffuse light and cloudy skies. Lesser Black-backed Gull - J. Whittle March 08, 1997. Sea Rim SP on the beach. Large gull, similar in size to the Herring Gull. The bird was white (including head and neck) with medium- dark gray mantle, back and 'wings. The gray was obviously darker than that of the Herring Gulls, and somewhat darker than the typical Laughing Gull. In flight, the wings showed a white trailing edge. Tail was white. Bill was yellow with red spot near tip of lower mandible. Legs were yellow. The iris was pale. Very similar in color to the graellsi subspecies with which the observer is very familiar. Least Tern - Don Richardson March 7, 1997. Rollover Pass. This tern was in breeding plumage. The bill, legs and feet were light yellow. The cap was black from the crown to well back onto the nape and included the eyes. The white forehead was a lateral white mark that separated the black cap from the yellow bill and ran nearly from eye to eye. The tail was deeply forked and showed no black in it anywhere while there was black in the outer one or two primaries from above. The tern was clearly smaller than nearby Forester's Tern, slightly more than half the length and less than half the bulk. Black Tern-J. Whittle March 22,1997. Bolivar Flats. Small to medium-sized tern. The bird was basically white, with medium gray upper wing surfaces. A black spot was behind the eye. A black bar present just forward of the shoulder. Cave (2) and Cliff (6) Swallows -J. Whittle March 29, 1997. Boathouse at Marshlands Unit of Sea Rim SP. Typical swallow size and shape with squared off tails. The birds had brown wings, buff rumps and pale undersides. The Cave Swallows had dark cinnamon foreheads, and very pale buffy throats. The Cliff Swallows had bright white foreheads and dark reddish throats. Houston Outdoor Nature Club Ornithology Group P.O. Box 270894 Houston, TX 77277-0894 SOLICITED MAIL Nonprofit Org.
