Transcript mmm May Editors: Aldrich and Gottschling SPECIES DATES TOTAL BRA3 CHAM FBEND GALV HARR JEFF Welcome back from the summer birding doldrumsI Hay began to wind down the Spring season and the number of bird species reported was back to within the "normal" limits of 214 species and 132,533 individuals, sixteen of you submitted 22 reports. The Cave Swallows reported first in April were still being observed in Hay with nesting behaviour being reported. If they are successful in nesting, this will be the first Upper Texas Coast record. The Swallow Tailed Kites were also still being observed and believed to be nesting on the Upper Texas Coast, although reports were not submitted to the Clearing House for this month. If successful, this also will be the first nesting record on the Upper Texas Coast. There were large numbers of shorebirds still being reported through the middle of the month and the beginning of the month (Hay 1-6) still had good numbers of warblers. If, after the actitivity of these last Spring months, you found yourself getting bored during those summer months - wondering what to do on those days you would normally be out seeking all the species you can find - you may begin to consider participating in the Texas Breading Bird Atlas Project. This project requires the documentation of observed breeding behaviour with the purpose of establishing boundaries for those birds breeding in the state. This is a massive project nation wide and you may be aware of your friends in other states participating in this as well. Not only does actitivity in this project help in establishing research data, but it will also help in honing your own skills at recognizing breeding activity while making the observation of those common birds extremeley enjoyable. No longer will you be able to go out on a hot summer day and not be aware of those nests, nestlings, and some much more subtle behaviour exhibited by the bird species remaining in those "doldrum" months. We highly recommend this activity. This is the first Clearing House based on the new, improved, 7th Edition of the OG Checklist for the UTC. We got a sneak preview and it is very well done and the revised graphics and notes are great. Everyone connected with the project should definitely be commended for a job well done. The UTC, based on careful examination of past records, has been defined as the original six counties bordering the coast. Although Waller county will not be used by the checklist committee we welcome sightings for our records data base. The sightings will continue to be reported in the CH but will not be subject to review based on the 7th Checklist. We are not certain at the time of this writing but the checklist should be available at the OG meeting in September. Also please pick up copies of the new, more portable, CH submittal form. The Clearing House is a monthly record of bird sightings made on the upper Texas coast. HOW TO READ THIS REPORT: SPECIES DATES TOTAL BRAZ CHAM FBEND GALV HARR JEFF WALL Bird Name early/late reports/individuals rpts/individuals listed by county OR county-location(ff) date,observer Noteworthy sightings will be underlined (very rare on date), capitalized (no previous sightings on date), or underlined and capitalized (NO PREVIOUS SIGHTING ON THE UTC). Birds with very rare, vagrant, accidental or no status on the checklist at the date of the sighting require notes. However, due to space considerations, only the notes on sightings which affect the checklist will consistently be published. Notes on very rare at date of sighting may published at the editor's discretion if space allows.
