Transcript ^,oor-'G(n._rlA<Lc« (979 POLICY OF REPORTING OBSERVATIONS TO THE CLEARING HOUSE I) Report any birds In the UTC checklist area of the counties of Jefferson, Chambers. Galveston, Harris, Ft. Bend and Brazoria. The CH does not record birds outside this area. 2) Birds mis area. Birds listed in your month's report should be in checklist order (AOU order), and in CH format....Species: Location—(how many)date, observers. 3) Your report must be received by the CH editor not later than the 3rd of the subsequent month. Any sightings may be sent in or called In at any time during the month, also. The CH editor is T. Paul Jones, 4902 Fern, Bellaire, Texas 77401 — 665-4197. 4) To make it meaningful as a continuing benefit to checklist updating efforts, the CH must have records of all birds, even our commonly abundant ones. Though contributor reports of such birds are summarized In the CH, your reports of them are important. 5) Some species must have notes to substantiate identification. (The first thing to remember about notes is to make them in the field while the sighting Is "fresh", or, if the bird is accommodating enough, while you are actually looking at it. But the most important thing about field notes is to describe the bird. Too often the CH editor finds the circumstance of a sighting.is given, but the bird is not described!) We have three categories of field notes: definitive, substantiating, and summary. a. Definitive field notes and confirmed identification by several observers are required on species not listed on the checklist. (Observers of those species are urged to quickly call the Rare Bird Alert Chairman (383-3955), to get additional observers on the way to help confirm Identification). Very carefully study the bird and make thoroughly detailed descriptive notes at the time of sighting. Only after confirmed identification will these sightings be included In the main body of the CH. The name of the species will be CAPITALIZED and underlIned in the CH. Unconfirmed sightings with good field notes and comments may be published as a "Special Report" to the CH. b. Substantiating field notes are required on: 1. Species on our checklist's Vagrant/AceidentaI/Extirpated list. 2. Species that have no frequency status on the regular list on the date recorded (this is shown by a blank space on the bar graph). Both of the above will be CAPITALIZED in the CH. 3. Species that are "Very Rare" (shown by dots on the bar graph) on the date recorded. These will be lower case and underlined in the CH. c. Summary field notes may consist of observed diagnostic marks (seen or heard) which made you decide on your identification and are required on the following species which are often confused with other species: Horned Grebe Ross' Goose Swallow-tailed Kite Peregrine Falcon MerlIn Yellow Rail* Black Rail Jacana** Baird's Sandpiper AlI Jaegers Lesser Nighthawk Western Kingbird Acadjan Flycatcher WiI low Flycatcher Least Flycatcher Fish Crow*** Sprague's Pipit Philadelphia Vireo Warbling Vireo Prairie Warbler Western Meadowlark Bronzed Cowbird Western Tanager Black-headed Grosbeak Grasshopper Sparrow Henslow's Sparrow Bachman's Sparrow * - away from "Rail Buggy Trips"; ** - away from Maner Lake; *** Beaumont City Landfill area. away from 6) Field notes may be properly submitted for any species that exhibits unusual behavior or is found in extraordinary habitat or numbers. 7) Any birds in the above categories requiring field notes that are seen in consecutive months at the same location by the same observer will be recorded In the CH as "prior reports" after the first submission of-notes. 8) Any of the above birds submitted without field notes will be published in the CH as having been reported with "no field notes".
