In the Sky.... Last April, a Red Knot was recaptured by an Argentinian scientist that had originally been banded at Reeds Beach, Delaware (USA) nine years before. Not only did this indicate the potential long life of a shorebird but it confirmed that they are capable of migrating a total of at least 180,000 miles (396,000 km) over their life and still keep going strong. Now we can confirm that a Semipalmated Sandpiper originally banded by a Manomet biologist on Plymouth Beach, Massachusetts (USA) in August 1984 was recaptured and released at Itamarca, Brazil in November of 1995. This small shorebird was at least 12 years old and still flying with the flock! Considering the incredible mileage on these birds and the uncountable hazards they have successfully evaded over the years, these birds are clearly super shorebirds! Ibis Watch A substantial number of juvenile and adult White-faced Ibis have been color- tagged in the northwest Great Basin as part of a long-term breeding ecology study. - Ten color combinations have been used depending on the year and colony location. Combinations consist of a red or yellow tag with different colored terminal margins, (yellow, white, red, gray orblack). The tags are attached to the USFWS leg band and may be on either leg. In addition, each tag has a unique three number code. The code is read from the terminal margin up toward the leg. Note: The red tag may have faded to a dull orange or brown. Some of these Ibis have been recorded in Texas in the past. If you sight any color-tagged Ibis, please contact Eric Kelchlin by e-mail at kristian@overland.net or by phone at (915) 837-2137. TOS To Kerrville The Fall Meeting of the Texas Ornithological Society will be held in Kerrville November 19-21. . It is jointly sponsored by the Riverside Nature Center Association (RNCA) and TOS. Fall color will be at its peak and wintering species expected are numerous. Headquarters of the meeting will be the Inn ofthe Hills Conference Center, 1001 Junction Hwy. (Exit #505 on 1-10 at FM 783, south to Hwy. 27 and then east to The Numbers In preparation for the November meeting please read the following: Proposed 1999 Budget Income Surplus Dues $1,015 3,840 Sales 200 Total $5,055 Expenses Spoonbill $ 2,800 Speakers 1,600 Facilities Library 20 50 Supplies 75 Hawk Count 200 CBC boat 200 Checklist Committee 50 Postage (Spoonbill) 400 Total $5,395 The deficit of $340 will be covered by our money market fund. submitted by Lin Chen, OG Treasurer Willow Flycatcher Effort Planning for one of the nation's largest and most comprehensive recovery efforts for an endangered species is now under way for the southwestern willow flycatcher, a rare inhabitant of streamside riparian areas in the Southwest. The southwestern willow flycatcher was listed as an endangered species on February 27,1995. Completion of a draft Recovery Plan for the bird is targeted for next fall with implementation to occur soon thereafter. One of four currently-recognized willow flycatcher subspecies, the southwestern willow flycatcher is a neotropical migratory bird that breeds in southwestern U.S. and migrates to Mexico, Central America, and possibly northern South America during the non-breeding season. The primary reason for the bird's decline is loss of riparian habitat throughout the Southwest. Last January, 13 scientists were appointed to serve on the Technical Subgroup of the Southwestern Willow Flycatcher Recovery Team. All are experts in a variety of subjects including southwestern willow flycatcher biology, cowbird biology, population biology, avian breeding ecology, fluvial geomorphology, riparian ecology, and range ecology.
