Transcript • Page 4 Feb. 13 - Red -breasted Nuthatch seen by Charles H. McNeese in NW Harris Co. [Where Cypress Rosehill Road excesses Spring Creek.) - £ine Siskins seen at San Jacinto Battlegrounds along with hundreds'of Goldfinches (N.P.) to to to to IISCELLANEOUS CORRESPONDENCE Nel Amthor (Bastrop State Perk, SE of Austin) "...I saw approximately 1500 or more Robins in the State Park at Bastrop yesterday (Jan. 23)...They were dense all the way from Bastrop to Smithville and gradually thinned out to La Grange." Dr. Charles S. Hall (Calveston, Texas) 11 .. .A particularly good year for Robins .. .here .. .It seems they have been gradually increasing in numbers over the past couple of years, but this year they are exceptionally abundant, 11.• •What has happened to the Boat-tailed Grackles? When we first arrived here in 1947 they were about as common a blackbird as one could encounter. Their numbers were legion and hundreds could be seen on any day. Now it is easily possible to take an all-day trip on the island and not see a single bird. "...The Inca Doves are spreading, and doubtless also increasing. It's only a couple of years ago, three I think, that we saw our first Incas in Kempner Park. Last year...we moved into a house where there was a resident colony (3807 Ave. R), now numbering at least 22 by count. Yesterday (Jan. 30) we took a short trip and saw our first Incas outside of town. They (a flock of about 10) were in a field which lay to the left as we left the western end of the seawall (the new extension) and crossed S Road so as to take in the large pond just south of Green's Bayou. They should become increasingly common in the field from now on, considering the number of young that they raise in a season. "...The female Baltimore Oriole observed in Kempner Park on the Christmas Census CJan7~2) has been observed there in the last week by another observer...Burrowing Owl still with us... "...I am sure that given a good day next year we can break 100 on the island count." Laymond Hardy (P.O. Box 99, Eaton Park, Fla.) Mr. Hardy has just published a leaflet on the Purple Martin which he is most anxious to circulate among bird watchers and bird lovers alike, inasmuch as the circular contains valuable information about much-needed nesting sites for Martins. He is sending your Editor a large number of these along with gourd seeds inasmuch as gourds make ideal bird houses for Martins. As long as the supply lasts, a copy of the Martin leaflet and gourd seeds may be obtained free-of-charge by contacting Mrs. Josiephine Wilkin, ME 6679, 402 Sue. Mrs. Bruce Reid (Box 083, Silsbee, Texas) "...Two Beaumonters have seen a Baltimore Oriole in a residential neighborhood...apparently wintering "where an abundance of food and thick evergreen shelter provide for all its needs. (See also Dr. Hall's comment on a wintering Baltimore Oriole.) "...Yesterday (Feb. 2) four of us saw a Frothonotary Warbler sharing station supplies with three Tufted Titmice. ~Sooh species "liest on our places/as do the La. Waterthrush and Pine Warblers that have not £one abroad this year...A yellow-breasted Chat, resident of Re id's Hill, did not leave until late December...(Having heard of) a brief article...commenting upon migratory phenomena for this year, we've not been so surprised at warblers and Catbirds wintering in the Sabine area. "•..We know where Crossbills and other northerners annually visit a stand of pine but did not go there this year. "•••Why don't all of you come over here about April—one of the loTeljest- sights in the world is ::hen the bright-hued birds come across Lake Sabine and swarm In thousands over the few trees on the SS coast and the natural hedges of bassharis ('coyote bush,1 'sea willow,' etc.) where it is as easy to see them, then, as it is nesting birds in the south and west Texas brush...Your group couldn't find a more rewarding site...sea and marsh birds, too." to to to to
