Transcript Arizona, and Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Maryland, bird was an immature Goshawk. —John Trochet w Page 19 I am fully convinced that this BLACK PHOEBE: Observed on an emergent stump was a dark bird about the size of an Eastern Phoebe, but somewhat chunkier of body. The head, including the eye, bill and throat were black. The back and breast were very dark gray, the wing also dark gray, tending to a somewhat lighter shade on the posterior Con the folded secondary flight feathers). The tall appeared all black. The belly andundsrtall cover+s were whi+e. The legs were dark. The perched bird was somewhat more elongated than nearby Eastern Phoebes. It was observed several times to sally forth over the water In pursuit os flying Insects and to return to its perch where It would repeatedly wag its tall. 1+ was heard +o u++er a call no+e which was very reminescent of the Eas+ern Phoebe, bu+ readily distinguishable by an attentive listener. The notes were more musical, slightly high pitched and slightly more prolonged monotone vocalizations. Though I did not see the white in the outer tail feathers I am certain this bird was a Black Phoebe. This is to my knowledge only the second UTC record, the first recorded In I960. —John Trochet BLACK-THROATED SPARROWS: Adult, Dark grayish, brown back and wings without wingbars, tall edged In white, dark and rounded. Dark crown, white patch above eye, dark streak through the eye, white patch below this with a black throat, black feathers extending to dark nape and forming a black triangle to upper chest. Lower chest and belly white. Flushed into brush about 25 feet away. Observed for four minutes with .8x50 binoculars. Seen 4:03 - 4:07 p.m.—overcast. The fartherest east I have seen this specie is In the Trans-Pecos, we have also seen him In Arizona and Colorado. —Larry Bal lard TWO VERY IMPORTANT LATE BULLETINS Re: OG field trip to Meridian State Park, May 6,7. Five screened shelters and eight trailer sites have been reserved by the OG (Fees paid) for Saturday night, May 6 (reservations extend from 2:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. Tentative plans are for us +o meet about noon on Saturday). For the shelters, you will need sleeping gear (cots or bags) and of course your food. Four +o six people could be comfortably accommodated in them. The 0G has already paid the fees, and these spaces are available on a "first-come, first-served" basis, so send your checks to Mary Gillette, made payable +o Ornithology Group, and marked "shel+er" or "si+e". The shelters are $5.00, and please indicate how many will be In your shelter, while the camping sites are $5.50 C$2.00 reservation fee, $3.50 campsite fee). For those cars which do not have an annual entry sticker, there will be a $1.00 entry fee, which will be paid at the park. Mary's address is: 5027 Longmont, Houston, Texas 77056. If you want to stay more than Saturday night, you must make your own arrangements with the park. The address'ts MERIDIAN STATE PARK, Box 188, Meridian, Texas 76665. The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department has started a reservation system for campsites in some heavily used parks, this small park included. Phone: 817/435-2536. Re: ONC dues now due: Last fall the ONC board decided to begin their fiscal year In January of each year. Therefore, your ONC dues of $5.00 are now due. While your 0G dues are not due until May I, you may prefer, as a convenience, to pay them with the ONC dues. If so, please send you-check for $7.00 to Mary Gillette (at the above address), check made payable to Ornithology Group. Do not send 0G dues to the ONC, if you decide to remit ONC dues direct to them. WHO BORROWED THE FEBRUARY TROGON NEWS?
