Transcript < Volume XVIII, No.'1 November, 1969 MERRY CHRISTMAS! HAPPY NEW YEAR! PUBLISHED BY THE ORNITHOLOGY GROUP, OUTDOOR NATURE CLUB, HOUSTON, TEXAS WESTERN STATES STANDBY FOR SANDHILL CRANE ALERT from the Department of the Interior Bureau of Sport Fisheries and Wildlife's Regional Director William T. Krummes, Albuquerque, New Mexico, reported today 103 greater sandhill cranes carrying varying combinations of plastic markers to improve knowledge of their movements will soon start their southward migration. The marking is the result of cooperative studies conducted by two graduate students working on Grays Lake National Wildlife Refuge, Idaho, and Malheur Rational Wildlife Refuge, Oregon. "Sightings of these birds will help biologists discern the exact migration and wintering areas to give them special attention," said Krummes. Grays Lake birds are marked above the ankle joint with 2 1/4" square green, orange, yellow or red plastic markers. Thirty-one of 46 eranes marked at Malheur are banded with 1 1/2" brightly colored plastic bands placed above the conventional metal bands more commonly used on birds. In addition, all Malheur birds are carrying colored plastic streamers 1 1/2" wide and 4" long attached to the metal bands. Twenty-five Malheur birds are dyed green, "Anyone sighting birds so marked is urged to write the Regional Director, Bureau of Sport Fisheries and Wildlife, P, 0, Box 1306, Albuquerque, New Mexico 87103, stating date and place of sighting and nature of the markers. The greater sandhill crane, which stands over three feet tall, is officially listed as a rare bird by the Bureau. It has two close relatives, the endangered whooping orane and more common lesser sandhill crane whieh it closely resembles. Greater sandhill eranes mingle with the smaller lesser sandhill cranes in migration and wintering areas. Separation is difficult, even for trained biologists. Since the greater sandhill crane is a species requiring special management, the Bureau of Sport Fisheries and Wildlife is anxious to learn more of the migratory and wintering habitats. MASKED DUCK - ANAHUAC HATIONAL WILDLIFE REFUGE by Dirk Hagemeyer This is the tird consecutive year that the MaskedDuck has been a resident on Shoveler Pond on the Anahuac Refuge. This is probably also the third year in a row that they nested on Shoveler Pond. In the fall of 1968 3 Masked Duck were seen on Shoveler Pond. At that time these were believed to be immature birds, however they were always at too large a distance to be certain. This year however, like in the fall of 1967, there is no question. Was Isurprised when Hoel Pettingell informed me on the evening of October 26, 1969 that he and Vic Emanuel had sighted 8 young and 1 adult Masked Duck in the N.W, corner of Shoveller Pond that same afternoon. They estimated the ducklings to be about 2 weeks old. I was surprised, even though I had expected the brood. Earlier, in August and September, a drake and hen had been seen in the same corner. But no sightings at all after September 4th, The following is a resume of some of the sightings that I know of; August 20. - A beautiful MALE Masked Duck was sighted by Fred Abshier at the N.W. corner of Shoveller Pond. August 21. - Fred showed the male to Russ Clapper. They also saw a female on this day.
