Transcript • 1959 HOUSTON CHRISTMAS COUNT • 1 1 | page 7 — Reported by Jerry B. Strickling January 2, i960 dawned sold and wet and got progressively colder and wetter. Everything was wet except the enthusiasm of the birders of the 0. G. of the Houston 0. N. 0. This undampened enthusiasm under the leadership of, and well organized by the Field Trip chairman Walter Barbare and his committee of Clayton Gilman and Vic Emanuel, carried the Houston Christmas Count to new record highs under the most adverse conditions of rain, poor vision, high water and mud. Never in the course of Houston Christmas counts have so many birders had such wet feet and tallied so many birds. 157 species, a new record high, were reported by 53 hirders, a new high, in 11 separate parties, a new high, and 67,272 total Individuals. They sloshed, slushed, waded and swam from 6:00 a.m. to biOO p.m. over 175 party miles, then descended on the J. A. Snyders (in clean shoes) to enjoy their hospitality for the second year. The certification committee (Buck Edwards, Vic Emanuel, Carl Aiken, Jerry Strickling) met at the Edwards (courtesy of Mabel) the following day and reviewed observation reports on rare and unlikely species. (Thanks to the people who so willingly and cheerfully submitted themselves to the cross examinations). This committee is satisfied beyond a reasonable doubt on each species submitted to the National Audubon Society. The high party count was 4b, Arlie McKay and Victor Emanuel with 98 species. Certain species missed this year were Say's phoebe, spoonbills, black skimmer, red«breasted nuthatch peregrine falcon, bald eagle, brown pelican, 2nd year, Armand Yramategui, 2nd year, ring- necked duck. Of particular interest were the yellow-billed cuckoo, and least tern,2nd year. _ » _ «_• _*_*_*_ THIRD ANNUAL FREEPORT CHRISTMAS BIRD CENSUS — DECEMBER 27. 1959 Party no.
