Transcript Page 6 trees. The day was overcast and wlndy-the sunrise was not detectable but it was fairly light by 8:30—j| after sunrise. I heard treeducks —I searched.the sky in the direction of the sound. Momentarily the duck appeared. We all saw it to be a treeduck by profile and sound— incredibly it was a Black-bellied Treeduck, The upper wings were all white—edged with black the cheeks were gray the bill—the bright pink characteristic of the speciesI The belly was not black completely— this bird was. in a stage of post-breeding molt,-' The two rarest sightings I've made on the upper coast—the same species within so short a time period.- However this species has attempted and succeeded In breeding in the central Brazos Valley for the past two seasons. It is not suprising that we should find these birds in our area after breeding.—Fred- Cbllins Ground Dove: Flushed from roadside, small size, reddish in wings in combination with rounded tail.—Ben Feltner Golden-winged Warbler: 1 male, 1 female, diagnostic black striped head and throat patch in combinatlonwlth yellow crown and wing-patch at 30' for 4 minutes.—Ben Feltner BLACK-THROATED GRAY: 1 male.

Since changes in our area are extensive, it is our hope to have a most successful count this year so we might contribute to this nationwide endeavor. To accomplish this it will take a concerted effort on the part of the ONC members. The date is December 29th - so plan now to join one of the area groups and be a part of an interesting and worthwhile project. You will have fun, too'. It's exciting to find unexpected species, to share observations with others, and to contribute to the cause of conservation.
