Transcript and an adult female Sandhill. The juvenile crane at thk stage looks like an immature Whooping Crane by appearing whitish, with a pale reddkh-brown head and neck and scattered reddkh-brown feathers over the rest of its body. Biologkts believe it k a hybrid because of the family behavior and grouping of the three birds, and because all the female Whooping Cranes in the Rocky Mountain experimental flock were accounted for thk past summer. The male Whooping Crane k part of an experimental flock that migrates each fall from Grays Lake NWR in Idaho to Bosque del Apache. There has been no reproduction in thk flock since it was established in 1975 by placing Whooping Crane eggs in the nests of Sandhill Cranes. At thk time, only ten or eleven adult Whoopers survive in the experimental flock. No new Whooper eggs have been placed under the Sandhills since 1988. The project ended because the foster-reared Whooping Cranes failed to form pan- bonds. One theory for the absence of pairing k that the foster-reared Whooping Cranes were more attracted to the foster parent Sandhilk than to their own species. Whooping Crane and Sandhill Crane hybrids have previously been produced in captivity, by artificial insemination, at the Patuxent Wildlife Research Center in Laurel, Maryland. If the chick k confirmed as a hybrid, thk will be the first known instance of the two species crossing in the wild. US.

NOEL'S NICHE LOOKING BACK Ry Nnyt Pfrttingp.il 30 YEARS AGO/FROM NOVEMBER 19fi2 SPOONBTI .1. THE TASK OF THE CONSERVATIONISTS "I started thk report with a recitation of signs of growth and vitality in our great organization. While all these signs give us courage, they by no means give reason for complacency. The conservation problems we face ako have been growing; indeed, some are staggering to contemplate as shortsighted man, prideful and even arrogant in hk use of technology, goes about changing the face of the earth and all too often forgetting the realities of nature, including the nature of man himself. "The task we would assign ourselves as conservationkts k to do our best to see to it that man does not lay waste the material resources that feed hk body, nor destroy the esthetic resources that nourish hk spirits; and to help him understand that he cannot pollute hk environment with impunity, nor ignore the laws of nature without courting hk own disaster." Carl W. Buchekter, President Program and Goak of the National Audubon Society Corpus Christi, November 10,1962 ARTICLES OG MITCHELL LAKES FIELD TRIP by Bob Luckner The October 17 "road trip" to San Antonio brought great weather, new hot spots to visit and lots of birding. Seven members met at Mitchell Lakes south of San Antonio, the day after a "cold" front passed through the area. Seventy-five species of birds were identified including excellent close-up views of a Least Grebe, Wikon's Phalarope, Redhead, Vermillion Flycatcher, Yellow-headed Blackbird and hundreds of American White Pelicans. Red-necked Phalaropes had not yet appeared thk year at Mitchell Lakes. In addition, we were treated to the passing of thousands of butterflies which filled the skies as they rode the front. Quite a sight. Our guide, Willie Sekula, k an experienced and respected area birder. Mitchell Lakes k owned by the City of San Antonio and its wetlands are stewarded by the local
