Transcript Page 3. I don't know whether all this is helpful to you or not, but I did want you to know that we had received your letter and were trying to get an answer to you—even such a tardy one. With all good wishes, Sincerely, Barbara C, Peterson Information sent by R„ Dudley Ross: In his "Gulls of the World" Dwight describes the eye color of the Western Gull as follows: Natal downs - Iris brown, Juvenal plumages - Iris "brown, auburn or sepia". Also in first winter and first nuptial plumages. Second winter plumages - Iris "Dresden-brown, raw umber and other browns". Second nuptial plumages - Iris "Sudan, or buckthorn brown..." *Third winter plumages - Iris (See PI, XII, fig, 3) "cream-color, Haples-yellow or sulphur-yellow" Third nuptial plumages Iris "sulphur-yellow, light ochraeeous buff" Fourth winter plumages Iris (PI, XII, fig. 2) "fuscous black, freckled with old gold", (adult) *In spite of the above description, the plate mentioned gives the impression of a dark eye, due to the pupil's being black, while the iris, being narrow, is scarcely noticeable. In other wo_ds, one does not get the impression of a light-colored eye, WHITE WIHGEB SCOTERS FOUND ON BAYPORT SHIP CHANNEL by Frank Kokesh Two White Winged Scoters were found on the morning of November 22 on Bayport shiip channel off Galveston Bay between La Porte and Seabrook, Louis McFadin was with me on the occasion. The Scoters were first seen at a distance of about 150 yards with 8 x 40 binoculars. The white patch on the side of the head was unusually white and bright. The Scoters were wary and rapidly paddled away. When followed, they flew off. The white wing patches were plain to the naked eye. Only one Scoter was found the next morning (and since). It would dive for long periods, and would also "rare" up in the water, opening its wings whereupon the white patches were like two handkerchiefs waving, Mary Belle Kokesh saw the Scoters on this occasion, as did John Tveten who took telescope pictures. The Lone Scoter was seen several times in the following month. On one occasion it was at first nowhere to be seen, even from the edge of the wharf. When I turned to leave, it flew up about 75 yards away. It must have been diving. One wonders what happened to the other Scoter. At first it seemed that it may have succumbed to the yellowish and foul smelling effluent from the Bayport industrial waste water treatment plant which empties into this relatively small channel. The Scoter was not seen on or about 8s00 am, on Xmas Count day, December 27. RARE BIRD CALL REVISION by Wallace C. Mebane, Jr. About once every two years the RARE BIRD CALL i revised, to give new birders a chance to participate, and to remove the names of participants who have left town. The past two revisions are recorded in the November, 1965, SPOONBILL, and the March, 1968, SPOONBILL. All participants of the RARE BIRD CALL pledge themselves not to collect any bird on the CALL, nor to pass the information on to any probable collector. Birds are placed on the CALL that are: (1.) New to the area, (2.) Listed as "ACCIDEHTAL" on the 1966 Field Cheek-List, (3,) Listed as "RARE" in all months of the year. Participants also have the obligation of immediately telephoning their assigned, numbers, and the numbers assigned to anyone who does not answer the phone.
