Very distinct contrast I between pale head and very dark body, as opposed to 2 Mottled I Ducks with them. Yellow bills observed on two Black Ducks, but I bill color not observed on others. When rising into air, flashing ! white wing linings evident. Speculum not observed. Bob Honig Black Duck: very dark body, light head and neck. One had green beak ^the other had an orange beak. Orange feet and legs. Light Ting contrasted in flight with black body. Jane Hamilton yerru^nous Hawk: perched high in tree about 200 yds. from road. I Light but patterned head, dark back, and clear white breast. I Tarsi were covered with light feathers (making him immature) I with yellow feet. Various binocs and 60X scope. Jane Hamilton B-nerican Golden Plover: in winter plumage. Rather tan in color and scaly on back. Lack of black on axillars in flight and overall tan (not gray) coloration distinguished them from black-bellied. Steve Williams ■Pectoral Sandpiper: in good spring plumage. Brown upper chest sharply demarcated from white of lower chest and belly. Scaly brown back and golden yellow legs. Noticeably larger and different in coloration from several nearby Least Sandpipers. Steve Williams IRuby-throated Hummingbird: imm. male seen at feeder for about 30 seconds in shadow. Three or four match-head sized spots on throat. No rufous on entire bird. Dark green top-side, dirty white underside. Ruthie Melton Anna's Hummingbird: fed at shrimp plants o Feb.11. Seemed fairly large, although th for comparison. Upper parts dark green, all, but quite gray. Tail short and wide of white on each corner. Crissum whiter A few dull throat spots had appeared by never saw any color flash.

Wesley Cureton IWHITE-NECKED RAVEN: seen on Armand Bayou Christmas Count on Dec.22. I noticed three crows sitting on telephone line, and the middle bird appeared larger. It had a prominently feathered, somewhat hooked bill. The throat feathers parted to reveal white neck feathers. When the three birds flew, its tail appeared longer and its flight pattern flatter than its neighbors. Over the Thanksgiving holidays I had had the opportunity to study a flock of these birds in the Rio Grande Valley.
