JULY FIELD TRIP by Nell Ray Twenty-three birders went out in Galveston's noon-day sun Saturday, July 16, and were rewarded with some rare treats. While the group gathered at the east end of the island, we watched,the beautiful, Avocets. and the very handsome Black-necked Stilts feeding nearby. Two Spoonbills flew directly overhead, banking and circling, and displaying for appreciative onlookers their gorgeous color. Down on the beach numbers of Black Skimmers were neetingo They protested vigorously as we walked in the area where their eggs lay about in the sand. We were most certainly not welcome and moved on so that they might resume their nesting. With the help of the scopes we studied identification of terns. The Common,"Sandwich, Black, and Gull-billed Terns, and Piping, Snowy, and Wilson's Plovers wes-g of specif*- interest. As the party proceeded west, all cars screeched to a .halt when someone sighted the Magnificent Frigatebird, He was a lifer for some and thrilling for all. Out Anderson Ways we found Lesser Scaup, Belted Kingfisher, Orchard Oriole and many Cattle Egrets and Louisiana Herons. The young and immatnre of the Black-neoked Stilts,2Black Skimmers and Terns were a bonus and a family of Clapper Rails kept us entertained for some time. Forty-four species of birds and some rather nice blue erab furnished a morning of fun fors Harvey Patten (leader), Sarah Gordon, Jerry Baker, Leota Stilwell, Jane Dodge, Betsy Perry, Melba Brake," Robert Anderson, Margaret Anderson, Tom Hews, Mr. andMrs. S.

The following article, submitted to us by Mrs. Dan Washburn of Galveston, is written by Marcus Diek;ey. "Along *he Say ..." was pabllshed in the Galveston Island Mirror on June 9? 1966 and is being used by $heir permission. "These are the days, now, in June, when the skimmers lay their eggs in hollowed places in the grasses near an inlet off the ship channel. "The rookery is within minutes from downtown Galveston. It seems another world. "S____ers are the black and white birds with a touch of red. They skim. They fly low and wheel above the water, makiag long swoops and glides with, just their opened beaks touching the surface, feeding with a great and delicate finesse.
