Christmas Bird Count - December 23, 1956 - (Noel Parley) Despite the intensive efforts of 35 sharp-eyed observers (a number exceeded by only 3 ether Houston Counts since 1914) and the many rarities encountered (5 never before recorded), tho effects of the continuing drought - coupled with increased property restrictions and industrialization within the census area - could not bo sufficiently offset to prevent a drop in the total species counted for the second year in a row - from 133 in 1955 to 133 this yaar. An eastward shift of the census circle (to include the mors productive Cove area) is now under serious consideration aad should bo an accomplished fact by the time the 1957 count falls due. At any rate, the 1956 Count was notable for Its many contrasting aspects, such as: a)- A new record high species count for one party (94) and yet... b)- The most low party counts ever recorded on any Houston census (5 parties under 60 species). a)- A total of 4 accidental or rare species from Northern and/or Western areas plus 3 accidental summer stragglers (including Black Tern, first U.S.Count record since 1949)... b)~ But not one of tho following species usually reported, all of which were observed on last year's Count: American bittern, Redhead, Ruddy Duck, Leaser Yellowlegs, Dowiteher, Hairy woodpecker, White-eyed vireo and Fox sparrow. a)- Above average temperatures most every day in December, and yet... b)- i)a the Say of the Count the arrival of a cold front making December 23rd enly tho 5th day ef tho month with a sub-normal reading. a)- Above normal rainfall for several days preceding tho Count - Including scattered showers on December 23rd - and yet... b)- Only 31.56 Inches ef rain since January 1st, 1956 — far below the normal 45.37 inches for the Houston area.
