Transcript "? gPOOJXBILL Published by the Ornithology Group, Outdoor Nature Club Houston, Texas, libby Price, Editor; Ellen Red, Asst. Editor VOLUME XXXVII, No. 5 May, 1988 <=•.. 0©*Kv**£ Ei/t+Zt Friday June 3: Deadline for Clearing House reports. Send to P.O. Box 271374, Houston TX 77277. Saturday, June 18: Ornithology Group field trip with Gary Clark as leader. We'll start at Jones Forest where all the locally nesting woodpeckers can be found, including the endangered Red- Cockaded Woodpecker. Yellow-billed Cuckoos, Pine Warblers and Brown-headed Nuthatches also nest here. The next stop is Huntsville State Park where many more singing breeders are possible: Hooded, Parula and Prothonotary Warblers, and in some years even American Redstarts breed here. If you wish to continue with us for the afternoon, bring a lunch to eat in the park. The afternoon looks as promising as the morning, for we'll move on to Lake Livingston and the upper Trinity River. Gary says he'll show us his secret spot where, if all goes well, we'll see roosting Wood Storks. The meeting place will be Jones Forest at 7:30 AM at the west entrance road. From Houston drive north on 1-45 to FM 1488 (5 mi. south of Conroe). Go west on FM 1488 for 2.5 miles. Pull in to the dirt road on the left which is the western boundary of the forest, or else park on the highway and walk in about 200 yards to meet the group. Bring insect repellent. No meeting in June; no meeting or field trip in July. Sunday, July 3: Deadline for Clearing House reports. QttMM^kjcAA^t - APRIL, 1988 CLEARING HOUSE - APRIL 1988 The month of April has brought the migrant shorebirds and warblers with it, with at least one party (EH) reporting .seeing all 36 of the expected shorebirds in a single day. There were a total of 258 species reported by 27 observers. 35 species of warblers have been reported this month. The heavy rains occuring on April 29 with overnight light rains continuing into early morning of April 30 made that day one of the best fallouts of the season. 27 species of warblers were reported for that date alone. There were several birds of note seen in April which have been highlighted according to status (underline - early/late date: capitalized - unusual siting of rare bird: both = vagrant or accidental siting. Among those species reported which will affect that species status on the current UTC checklist are Red Necked Phalarope, Painted Redstart and Lazuli Bunting, (see write ups) For this report, the sighting of common or widely distirbuted species will be detailed by total number reported, early/late date and hi/low count. Unusual sightings will include the observer as well as county/location. CLEARING HOUSE SUBMITTAL FORMS MUST BE POSTMARKED HO LATER THAN THE FIRST OF THE FOLLOWING MONTH. We would like to thank each of you for your prompt submittals utilizing the new Clearing House submittal forms. Please feel free to offer us suggestions in making your Clearing House a useful and productive endeavor. CO/LOC SPECIES DATE NUMBER TOTAL OBSERV (EARLY/LATE) (HI/LOW).
