Transcript Page 8 being seen at Loggy Bayou, 30 miles south of Shreveport (for directions call Bruce Crider, AC504/344-8059), and a strange black-headed gull with a vermilion bill was seen around the Bolivar ferry, between the 17th and 23rd of February. Few local birders got the word on this, though some Louisiana birders came twice to see and photograph It. These slides have been sent various places, hopefully some decision will be reached as to Its identity; John O'Neil, after a preliminary look at the slides, told Jerry Strickling it was a very Interesting bird, probably not a Laughing gull, though possibly a hybrid, and Indicated further research on his part. So If you are in the area look the gulls over carefully, you may see a black-headed gull with a bright vermilion bill, brown wings darker toward primaries, with a darker brown W on wings, a tail with a dark terminal band, and a gray back. These strange gulIs generate a lot of interest, research and discussion, which is good for one thing especially: It shakes one out of careless acceptance of all gulls being faml- I far ones! NEW PHONE NUMBER FOR RARE BIRD ALERT CHAIRMAN David and Jan Dauphin have moved to 7315 Cottonwood Dr., Baytown, Texas 77521. Their new number is 383-3955. Remember to keep David posted on any unusual as well as rare birds you see. New members take note, when you are planning to go out birding, check wi+h David or Jan to see what may currently be seen. The more who tell David of unusual birds seen, the be++er birding i+ will be for many.
