The tiny bird had been banded on June 21, 1976 at the Rocky Mountain Biological Laboratory in Gothic, Colorado and reappeared there this past August, much to the scientists' surprise. Dr. William Calder of the University of Arizona has been studying hummingbirds for 17 years and contends that, based on calculations which correlate body weight with life expectancy, a Broad- tailed Hummingbird should live about 4 or 5 years. "The Grand Old Lady," as she has been dubbed, is at least 11 years old and has survived at least 10 migration trips. BRAZOS BEND C.B.C. OFFICIAL THIS YEAR The first official Brazos Bend Christmas Bird Count will be Sunday, December 28, 1986. Last year an unofficial Brazos Bend C.B.C. tallied 130 species; a diversity of habitats promises to yield higher species numbers (perhaps 150?) as count circle coverage improves. Meet in the Interpretive Center at Brazos Bend State Park at 6:00 AM. Take US 59 south from Houston past Hwy 6, cross the Brazos River, exit at Crabb River Rd. and follow signs to the park. Ask for instructions at the entrance. At the end of the day we will have a countdown at the Interpretive Center, so bring dinner and join us after the count. Call Bob Honig (776-8619) or Doug Williams at the Houston Arboretum (681-8433) if you plan to participate or for information. A few area leaders are needed.
