Transcript Page 10 Blue-faced Booby: Picked up by Game Warden.at Seabrook and turned over to Linda Snyder; seemed to have sore feet; Linda said she would release It to wild in a day or so. —David Dauphin Double-crested Cormorant: Large cormorant associated with many Olivaceous Cormorants on N. Deer Island; whitish-brown throat & breast; orange lores and gular region, ending abruptly a+ +he auriculars Instead of tapering to a point as in the Olivaceous; this species has recently nested on Sidney Island. —Ted Eubanks, Jr. Ll+tle Blue Heron & Cattle Egret: Lake on Hale Ranch. nests found In rookery on northern part of Pliant Cattle Egret: Large numbers of Cattle Egrets & White-faced Ibis were seen flying to roost In trees on Hwy 529 near Katy-Hockley Cutoff Road toward dusk. Most of White-faced Ibis were Immatures. Great-tailed Grackles were also roosting here. On 6/23 In the morning many of the Cattle Egrets were carrying nesting material (+wlgs) away from this roosting location. —Florence Bennett Mai lard: Female bird; orange bill; white borders on both sides of blue speculum; white In tali. Seen at 300 yards with 20x scope In excellent light by both observers. Probably injured bird holding over. —Jim Morgan Swallow-tailed Kite: About I p.m. on 6/2/79 at the Gaylynn Shopping Center in Beaumont my wife and I saw three Swallow-tiled Kites fly over leisurely just above the tree tops. The three birds appeared identical. They were white bodied, had long pointed wings with the trailing edge and tips black, plus long, black forked tails. One bird gave a sharp "kee, kee, kee" ca'l I at'falrly regular intervals. —Steve Calver Swalnson's Hawk: One, light-phased Individual was seen soaring over a river-bottom stretch of piney woods along Clear Creek north of FM 2351 in Friendswood on June 21 at approximately 5:30 p.m. The bird first caught my eye as I was driving home since it was soaring quite high and appeared longer-winged than the Red-shouldered Hawks which I have often seen In this locale. Thus, I pulled over Into a convenience store parking lot where I observed the bird ai a distance of about 500 feet for a pertod of about 30 seconds with a pair of 7x35 binocs. The bird was, Indeed, a long-winged buteo with light shoulders and darker hind-wings. The tall was light as was the lower breast, but the upper breast was washed by a broad chestnut band. Neither the tall color and pattern nor the whl+e-and-ches+nut breast were consistent with either a Red-tailed or Red-shouldered Hawk. The bird was observed on a clear day with the late afternoon sun at my back. —Mike Austin Bird was riding the thermals over the ball park area of Bear Creek Park. Very dark flight feathers with light colored wing linings. Light colored body with a dark upper breast band and light colored tail. Bird was holding a rodent In its talons while soaring, and several times bent Its head down and pulled Its feet forward and would take a bite of its prey. —Florence Bennet Large dark buteo, soaring over prairie, slight dihedral to wings, light underwings with dark trailing edge. Generally light underside. No belly streaking. Breast band not observed. Elrlc McHenry Caracara: Suddenly became aware of blackbirds rising out of field in pursuit of a Caracara. It was flying In a straight line fairly low over the field. Had large white patches near tips of dark wings, a light colored tall with a black band at tip. Seen with 10x40 binocs. —Florence Bennett UPLAND SANDPIPER: 4 birds found In a bean field off Clay road. Longer and more upright than Kllldeer. Neck slim, head small with dark crown, large eye and short, sharp beak. Wings brown, white undersides, held raised for a second after flight. Legs yellow. Presumably these birds are very early return migrants rather than very late spring migrants. Do we know whether they are non-breeding birds or individuals from the southerly part of their range which have already completed breeding? Dun 11n: Shorebird, smaller than Dowitcher, standing In Inch deep water In salt marsh, grooming. Black belly, rus+y back, dark legs and beak. Seen In excellent light with 20-45X scope for 5 minutes at about 50 yards. —Ruthie Melton Long-billed Dowitcher: a flock of 12 dowitchers were observed feeding a+ the edge of a tidal lagoon in the lea of the South Je+ty in Galves+on a+ 8 a.m. Eleven of the individuals were in fall (?) plumage and, hence were unidentifiable as to species but the twelfth bird was in full spring plumage. The bird was feeding In typical dowitcher fashion. It was brownish above and quite rusty below. The
