Transcript New Species Added to Checklists David Sarkozi New Species added to the Texas Species List and the Upper Texas Coast Checklist In July 1999, The Texas Bird Records Committee (TBRC) accepted Ron Weeks' record of Yellow-footed Gull in Brazoria County. This record is the first for Texas and the Upper Texas Coast. Yellow-footed Gull (Larus livens) was formally regarded as a subspecies of Western Gull (Larus occidentalis). It is resident in the Gulf of California in Mexico and the Salton Sea in California. It is mainly resident in the Gulf of California and rare outside ofthe Gulf. It is sometimes resident in the Salton Sea in numbers. In the meantime, we'd like to remind everybody that birds for the Clearing House list can be sent to: Mike Gremillion 3304 Rice Blvd Houston, TX 77005 e-mail: mgremillion@houston.rr.com Clearinghouse submission forms are available at the meeting or for download from the OG web page at http://texasbird.simplenet.com/hog You can also send in sighting information via e-mail in this format: species, date, county, location, count, observer. Conversation Corner Mary Dodson Yellow-footed Gull is very similar to Western Gull with a blackish back, white bellied, and about the size of a Herring Gull. Yellow-footed and Western Gulls have the darkest back of North American gulls. The bill is "blob ended"; its tip is obviously larger than the base. While Western Gull always has pinkish feet and legs, Yellow-footed Gull has yellow feet and legs.

The Army Corps of Engineers is accepting comments on issues that should be considered in the Environment Impact Study ofthe proposes expansion ofthe Port of Houston at Bayport. According to the Port Authority, there will be seven thousand 18-wheel trucks going in and out every day as well as eight trains. Most ships are being built for fifty foot channels: the Houston Ship Channel is forty-five deep. If they decide to deepen the channel, it would greatly increase the salinity ofthe bay, changing the entire ecology. To register your comments, write: Col. Nicholas Buechler Corps of Engineers-Galveston District 200 Fort Point Road Galveston, TX 77550. The Texas Natural Resources Conservation Commission released its plan for cutting ozone levels. Houston must reach federal standards by 2007 or lose federal funding for highways. Our region must reduce nitrogen oxides emissions by as much as 85% to reach compliance. The plan does not achieve the required levels. The TNRCC plan does not address seven thousand additional trucks per day or off road pollution sources. Good news! The Peregrine Falcon populations have increased so much that they have been removed from the Endangered Species List. The National Marine Fisheries Council is doing a study regarding the possibility of establishing one or more marine reserves in the Gulf of Mexico. Page 4 August 1999, Vol. 48, No. 6 The Spoonbill
