Transcript -Oi. (Sli CORY'S SHEARWATER: near High Island in the surf. Seen at 50 yds. in good light with good binoculars. Flying toward, by, and away from us. A large brown bird with long pointed wings. :__rk line at leading and trailing edge of wings. Tail brown and rounded. Flew in trough of waves with stiff wing beats. The surf was very rough, and we had gulls nearby for comparison of size. Margaret Anderson has seen Cory's Shearwaters quite a few times. Ellen Red Oldsquaw: fairly small white-faced duck with large roundish black postocular spot slightly lower than eye. Small dark crown patch was visible at certain angles. Throat and upper neck were white, turning into a darker breast band where breast met water. Small grayish bill. All dark wings. Dark back. As close as 40 ft. for 25 minutes with binocs and 20- 30X scope. P.D.Hulce, Steve Schultz Oldsquaw: reported by Linda Snyder on field trip to Cooling Ponds. Medium-sized white duck with brown wings. Seen in rapid flight for 5 seconds in good light. David Dauphin White-tailed Hawk: immature. Uniformly pale gray tail. Blackish underwing coverts. Remiges blackish, but mottled with paler feathers. Breast had vertical blackish streaks. Head rather dark with a short pale stripe on side. Bob Behrstock, Linda Graetz Ferruginous Hawk: large buteo with pure white breast and abdomen. Head almost white, but with some grayish on crown and dark line through eye. Back of neck streaked longitudinally. Rusty shoulders. Pale rusty tail, fading into white at base. Seen perched in tree and flying at 500-1000 yards with 30X and 30-60X Balscopes. Bill and Jean Harwell BOHEMIAN WAXWING: in late December I observed an unusual bird sitting on the side of our homemade fish pond which had a small amount of water in it. After looking at it with binoculars and consulting two bird books, I concluded it was a Bohemian Waxwing. Suddenly 10-15 more landed, drank, and flew off. I called Audubon, who suggested I observe more closely for specific color differences between the Cedar and the Bohemian. It was a week before they showed up again, and they fit the description of the Bohemian. In the second week of January they started coming late in the afternoon every day and sitting over the pool in the very tops of the trees. There was also a flock of Cedar Waxwings during this time. The Bohemians were much larger than the Cedars, and their crests were always erect instead of lying back as in the Cedars. The Bohemians were quite gray-breasted, without any of the yellowish that the Cedars had on the breast. Beginning between the legs and extending on toward the tail was a noticeable buffy color. I failed to notice any difference in the wing. Ate berries and buds on trees, but never came to the raisins and blueberries I put out for them. They also had a yellow rim on the end of the tail. Betty Jukes Bewick's Wren: observed at south end of Borstedt's pond in shrubs. Responded to screech owl imitation. Pale eyeline, whitish breast with no extensive cinnamon, and whitish half circles along edge of tail. Bob Behrstock, Linda Graetz Wood Thrush: eliminated from Hermit Thrush because of rusty head and back, grayish-brown tail, and bold dark breast spots Tommy Michael Ornithology Group (Outdoor Nature Club) C/O Ann Booth 14735 Oak Bend Houston, Texas 77079 (RETURN POSTAGE GUARANTEED) Nonprofit Org.
