Transcript i-S _c_o l fe_a VOLUME XVII,NO. 2 June, 1968 ****************** * "Hast thou named all the birds * * without a gun? * * Loved the wood-rose, and left * * it on its stalk?" * * Emerson * ****************** PUBLISHED BY THE ORNITHOLOGY GROUP. OUTDOOR NATURE CLUB. HOUSTON. TEXAS 0. G. FIELD TRIP 12th MAY 1968 - by David Marrack Ornithological species identified only just outnumbered the observers. Unidentified specimens easily outnumbered the sum of both. Five members registered at Boyd's Restaurant, Rosharon, though sighting was claimed of two others through the all obscuring torrential rain. Presumably they retired to cover. The Washburn's camper provided a convivial and welcome retreat for Dr. Steve Williams (leader), Paul and David Marrack. On the route to Galveston, the following species were recognized: House Sparrow, Great Blue Heron, Common Egret, Louisiana Heron, White-faced This, Spoonbill, Mottled Duck, Clapper Rail, Kildeer, Black-bellied Plover, Sanderling, Laughing Gull, Least and Black Terns, Bank Swallow and Boat-tailed and Common Grackle. We all returned with webbed feet, disheveled, but unbowed! CRESTED HUMMINGBIRD CAPTURED OH GALVESTON ISLAND Ii FIRST NORTH AMERICAN RECORD!! by Noel Pettingell Confirmation by Warren M. Pulich of the occurrence on Galveston of the Crested Hummingbird (Orthorhyneus cristatus) appears in the April I968 issue of The Auk (Page 322). This is the second hummingbird species discovered in the 5-county Upper Texas Coast area since the 4th edition of the UTC Field Check-list was compiled. The article by Warren M. Pulich is as follows: The occurrence of the Crested Hummingbird, Orthorhyneus cristatus exilis, in the United States.—The first week of February I967 a friend, Starling Mosley, while on temporary military duty in the Galveston-Houston Bay area of Texas, telephoned to tell me that he had acquired a badly damaged specimen of a very unusual hummingbird that he was unable to identify and wished to forward to me. A few days later I received the specimen and tentatively identified it as a Crested Hummingbird, Orthorhyneus cristatus. Most of its body was missing, but the wings, the greater part of the tail, and a portion of the head including the pointed crest were still intact. The remains had been flattened by some unknown means. Unfortunately, Mr. Mosley did not fully realize the significance of the specimen at the time and failed to learn all the details of the hummingbird's occurrence. He stated that it had been netted on Galveston Island by two boys (names unknown), one of whom took it home alive where it later died and was thrown into the trash. Apparently in his conversation with the boys, Mr. Mosley asked them to retrieve the specimen and to bring it to him. Whether from fear of possible arrest, punishment, or other reasons of their own,
