Transcript Volute 5 No. 12 April 1957 * Prof. Lynds Jones of Oberlin, Ohio conducted oneof* * the first spring bird "roundups".in the U.S. on * * May 7, 1904. A combined list of 131 species was * * recorded on this date by 6 observers working in * * three separate parties. Prof. Jones, then edi- * * tor of The Wilson Bulletin, stimulated Nation- * * wide interest in spring bird counts with his * * annua! "All Day with the Birds" articles ... *' Published by the Ornithology Group, Outdoor Nature Club, Houston, Texas FORTHCOMING ACTIVITIES April 28 - SUNDAY - THE 1957 S.E. TEXAS "BIRD ROUNDUP" Noel Perley, Compiler Every birder should participate in the annual spring bird roundup by spending as much time in the field as possible on April 28. Make up your own party select your own area (within a radius of 200 miles) those who cannot go afield should bird in their own neighborhood, city parks, etc. send list of all species positively identified to Noel Perley, 3010 Prospect, Last year's roundup total of 234 species was exceeded by only one other area in the entire United States (Delaware: 241) Your bird list can help us regain first place in the Nation. . . Be sure to record all birds positively identified on the above date. All such observations should then be sent to the writer by May 5 so that final results of the Roundup say be published in the Hay issue of THE SPOONBILL, a copy of which will be sent all contributors. Please include the following information in your report: 1. Complete list of species (number of individuals not necessary) with full etails on all rarities (Last year,compiler was forced to insert question aarks after a number of rarities lacking supporting details) 2. Names of all observers in party. 3. Total species recorded by each observer in party. 4. Route followed by party. 5. Party miles (car, foot, boat), 6. Period of observation. -.ilT ; .>-■ Roundup Area Limits (200 N-S by 200 E-W miles): Coast from Port Aransas eastward to Sabine Pass (Louisiana boundary) thence north along Sabine River to Kirbyville (Jasper County); ;hern boundary including Kirbyville, Little Thicket Sanctuary (San Jacinto Bryan/College Station, and Rockdale (Milam County); Western boundary including Rockdale, Saithville (Bastrop County), Yoakum, and Aransas Pass. Each year, during April and May, spring bird counts are conducted all over the U.S. However, there are as yet no set standards of procedure such as govern the Audubon Society's annual Christmas Counts. Consequently, there are so many inconsistencies involved in spring count reports that Nation-wide■comparisons are never easy to make. For escaaple, some reports include more than one day's observations, others list only migrants, while still others are submitted separately by parties covering overlapping areas. Extent of coverage also varies considerably, ranging from the backyards of observers working alone or in pairs all the way to enormous cooperative ventures involving scores of observers working in many groups as much as 200 miles apart - such as in the case of our own S.E. Tescas Roundup. It is therefore quite evident that there exists a great need for
