Transcript 1 VOLUME XXII, NO. 6 OCTOBER, 1973 PUBLISHED by the oRNIThOLOgx grOWp, OUTDOOR natuRj. OXUS, HOUSTON,TEXAS RARE AND UNUSUAL BIRD NEWS Austin birders had a rare visitor in their area the third week of September, when a Red Phalarope, plus two Northern Phalaropes, among a group of Wilson's Phalaropes, were discovered in a sewage pond east of the city. Several of our members were fortunate in being able to view these birds, one member being so lucky as to be in Austin on business at that time'. Closer to home, a flamingo was reported that was losing its color among birds of other species; it is not known if it is an escapee. As of this writing, only four people have seen it, all on Sept. 30th, and no rare bird alert was sounded, so the remainder of us got the news by word of mouth and have so far been unsuccessful in seeing it, but for one couple who saw what could very well be the elusive bird, but it went into the clouds, and escaped positive identification by them. To try to find the flamingo, go west on IH 10 to Highway 6, turning right on 6, then, upon reaching Katy-Hockley Road, turn right onto it. Go down it until you get to House & Hahl Road, and turn right onto it. Almost immediately you will see the levee of the 1st pond. Look into both the first and second ponds; you will need a stool of some kind to see over the levee, or you'll have to get on the top of your hot car'. When all else fails, it may be in the sky above you. If you don't see the flamingo, you will be rewarded with innumerable Wood Storks, White Pelicans, Avocets, and ducks. If the water looks dark, it is just because there are so many birds on it'. WINTER TRIP TO RANCHO DEL CIELO: The Gorgas Science Society announces a continuation of the popular winter trips to Rancho del Cielo in America's northernmost tropical cloud forest. The rancho, biological field station for Texas Southmost College, is located at about the 3800-foot level on the Sierra de Guatemala of southwestern Tamaulipas. Guests are housed in station buildings, fed extremely well, and explore the forest with Mrs. J. 0. E. (Barbara) Warburton, staff biologist, and other experienced naturalists. This is a rare opportunity to know the wilds of Mexico without the problems which beset tourists. A one-day trip by vehicle will be made to the rugged pine-oak zone at higher elevations. Cooking, driving, etc., are performed by students of Gorgas Science Society as a contribution to maintenance of the station project. Weather In January is usually mild and dry. As deciduous trees are partially defoliated, birders find it an excellent time to study a variety of tropical birds as well as wintering species from the eastern and western United States. Some Mexican bird species to be expected in the forest at this time are: Rufescent Tinamou, Crested Guan, Singing Quail, Military Macaw, Squirrel Cuckoo, Mottled Owl, Wedge-tailed Sabrewing, Red-billed Azurecrown, Amethyst-throated Hummingbird, Mountain Trogon, Blue-crowned Motmot, three species of woodcreepers, Blue Mockingbird, Brown-backed Solitaire, Rufous-browed Peppershrike, Golden-
