Transcript the best location to find Magnificent Frigatebirds'in late Sumner and early fall. Look for these huge birds roosting upon pilings out in the bay. Rookeries/breeding colonies The only breeding colony for colonial waterbirds within the park is located near the observation tower at the end of the nature trail immediately north of Butterrowe Bayou. Great Blue Heron, Great Egret, Snowy Egret, Tricolored Heron, Reddish Egret and Cattle Egret all nest in the rookery that has developed in the woody scrub at the end of the trail. Laughing Gulls prefer to nest on the ground in the marshhay or saltmeadow cordgrass (Soartina spartinae). and both Gull-billed Terns and Black Skimmers have bred on the shell and sand in the same general area. Forster's Terns breed in a colony located on Hoecker's Point (located outside of the park immediately to the northeast). Manmade structures The development of the park itself created habitat for several species of birds. Rock Doves, Great-tailed Grackles and House Sparrows are attracted by the litter and garbage left by visitors. Drainage culverts provide nest sites for Barn Swallows. Purple Martins nest in houses erected specifically for that purpose. Killdeer and Common Nighthawks nest in small depressions (scrapes) in oyster shell and gravel roads in the park. Aerial feeder/transient Although never landing, there are several species of birds that occur only while flying over or through the park. Except for the Barn Swallows breeding within the park in summer, migrating swallows feed on the wing and therefore never stop within the park's boundaries. Hawks are often viewed riding thermals (kettling) high overhead, and flocks of shorebirds can be seen in spring flying in from the Gulf of Mexico after incredible non-stop flights from Central and South America. Gulls and terns are forever crossing the park as they move between the gulf and bay. Barn Owls, the only resident owl within the park, are most often seen searching for prey as they hover over the open coastal grasslands at twilight. submit notes on all those good birds. And with all the reminders completed - on to the birds. CLEARING HOUSE CLEARING HOUSE September. 1991 Editors: Phyllis and Tony Frank Many interesting sightings were reported this month; however, on a negative note, reports again included birds with very rare status with no notes. Again please remember to submit notes. Many birds may require only a brief description. A total of 200 species were reported for September. Interesting sightings for the month include a jaeger species sighted from the ferry and a Black-billed Cuckoo at Smith Woods. A Black-chinned Hummingbird was reported. Eastern Phoebe was reported from Boy Scout Woods. A somewhat late Swainson's Warbler was reported. A fall Scarlet Tanager was reported again this year. An early Chipping Sparrow was noted. As always early reports will be appreciated, but they are due by November 3rd. The CH format remains the seme this month. The listing uses the following format: bird name, early late dates, reports/total and summary by county or detailed listing. The format of the county summary is as follows: county designation - number of reports/number of birds. The detailed listing format is as follows: county-(number of birds) day, observer code. Very rare birds are underlined. Birds with no previous record on date or vagrant status appear in bold.
