Transcript VOLUME XVIV, No. 2 June, 1970 HAVE YOU PAID YOUR DUES? PUBLISHED BY THE ORNITHOLOGY GROUP, OUTDOOR NATURE CLUB, HOUSTON, TEXAS Coldspring Orioles by Joe M„ Heiser, Jr,, Declared by long-time citizens of San Jacinto County as having been around for at least fifty years, the Baltimore Orioles of Coldspring are back again this year. On May 8, Joe Farrell and I observed the activities of one pair in a favorite location, the big sycamores shading the cafe on the public square, The male responded readily to my imitation of his song. From two to six or ei^ht Red-headed Woodpeckers may now be seen along a stretch of FM 9^5 in the park-like terrain surrounding the Magnolia community. Similarly abundant last summer, the Redheads could not be found during the winter months, offering proof of the seasonal movements of this speoies. The smaller woodpeckers, like the nuthatches and many other forms of fauna and flora of this region, are disappearing, with no evidence of human concern over their loss. Whose re s ponsibi11ty7 BIRDING IN SOUTH DAKOTA AND COLORADO by Margaret Anderson From May 24th to June 1st my husband and I combined sightseeing and birdwatching in South Dakota and Colorado. Our first stop was Waubay Wildlife Refuge in Northeastern corner of South Dakota. This is a nesting site of ,the Red-Necked Grebe and we did see one for a North American lifer. Also we saw many nesting ducks, Canada Geese, Cormorants, Pelicans and Wilson's Phalaropes. The marshes had hundreds of Yellow-Headed Blackbirds. The recreation area on the refuge has lovely trees that were full of singing warblers and vireos. Other areas had Bobolink, Clay Colored Sparrow, Orioles and one Pigeon Hawk, This was such a "birdy" place that I highly recommend it to others. Next we went to the Southwestern corner of the state to see the Badlands and the Black Hills, Mt. Rushmore was very impressive. There were not as many birds as at Waubay but we enjoyed Spearfish Canyon. Every stop alongside the fast rushing river produced Mac - Gillivray Warblers and American Redstarts and Dippers, We were pleased to see one Dipper sitting on a ledge just under his globular nest. The White-Winged Junco is limited in the summer to the Black Hills region, but we only saw one. Perhaps we were doing too much sightseeing and not enough birding. On the drive down the Eastern border of Wyoming to Estes Park it was nice to lacate a Brewer's Sparrow and to see Eastern and Western Kingbirds side by side on the wires. Lark Buntins flew up to sing and fluttered back to the fences and a few McCown's Longspurs flew ahead of our car. In Estes Park Village Mountain Bluebirds and House Finch were easily seen. More Dippers were in Big Thompson Canyon with a nest under a brdige, A trip to the top of Trail Ridge Road was lovely. Horseshoe Park in the lower elevation was the birdiest place as we have found on other trips, However we were glad to see many Water Pipits above the treeline on the tundra and Brown-Capped Rosy Finches feeding in the snow at the side of the road. The exciting climax was a White-Tailed Ptarmigan standing on the road shoulder. We approaced as near as 15 feet to him, whereupon he crouched down and blended so perfectly with the rocks that we could not see him. Our total number of species for the trip was 156 with 5 lifers, late spring. It was a nice trip for
