PAST EVENTS ** 0G field trip to HL&P Cooling Ponds: On Saturday, December 4, approximately 35 birders met at the roadside rest area on I —10 east of San Jacinto River. While wailing for all to arrive and assemble, several birders entertained themselves by checking the 50+ Ruby-crowned Kinglets In the rest area trees, hoping to find a stray species of another sort. Once on our way, our abte leader, David Dauphin, led us through the heavy fog to the cooling ponds. Dave had obtained a key to the locked gate which leads out onto a long levee where we consolidated into fewer vehicles. Birding the entrance roads, the ponds, the rocks and marshes along the levee, and the woods at the levee's end, the group turned up 91 species for the trip list. Included were 3 species of Grebes, both area- Cormorants, 12 species of ducks, 2 accipi- ters, and 8 species of sparrows. The most notable observation was the finding of 100+ Bufflehead. Though this trip did not turn up a rarity like the Oldsquaw of the previous year's trip, a good time was had by all. In the early afternoon the group dispersed and many of the birders took the opportunity to scout various OG Christmas Count areas as did Bob Moulton and myself.- The trip list Is being submitted to the Clearing House for publication. —Jim Morgan ** Christmas Counts: Place Houston Freeport 195 Eagle Lake 138 Old River 150 (Jonelle Buckels says Species Observers 175 122 90 15 31 this is the highest count In both species and observers for this count, and thanks all the SPOONBILL readers who assisted In making this possible). FREEPORT BREAKS 195 ON A RAINY DAY! by Victor Emanuel, Count Director In many ways the twentieth annual Freeport Christmas bird count was the most remarkable of them all. After a long drouth this summer and early fall, the Freeport ares was deluged with twelve Inches of rain In the past two weeks. It was mostly clear and mild for the last few days before the count. Counters up at midnight the night before the count (they got a Barn Owl just after midnight!) saw stars and at 6 AM I watched a new moon rise over the gulf, a beautiful orange sliver, but it disappeared quickly into clouds.
