Transcript c_l Volume _x, No, 5 September, 1971 PUBLISHED BY THE ORHITHLOGY GROUP, OUTDOOR NATURE CLUB, HOUSTON, TEXAS A MISSING POND by Paul and Margaret Jones On August 15, while driving down FM 362 between Waller and Brookshire, we saw a large rice field almost covered with water from the heavy rains the area had had, in whieh were Snowy Egrets, White-faced Ibis, Louisiana Herons, Black-necked Stilts, Roseate Spoonbills and others. Among the American Avocets at the far edge of the water were some plover-type birds which kept spinning and d.bbling in the water but were just a bit too far away to identify with just binoculars, Later discussion with other birders indicated that these spinners might be some Wilson's Phalaropes, On August 29 we went out Clay Road and to the Warren Ranch area for a birding drive, using County road maps (gotten at the Texas Highway Department on Washington, which can be very helpful when you are just wandering form road to road), *e decided to have another look at our pond and try to determine if we could identify the birds as phalaropes. For a while we began to think it had been a mirage—birds, water and all, for we went up and down that ropd a couple of times until we finally realized the "pond" had a knee-high second growth of rice and was a field at the intersection of FM 529 and FK 362, We had passed it by twice, looking for a large sheet of waterI. It was full of white-faced Ibis, Little Blue Herons, Louisiana Herons and occasionally a Black-neeked Stilt would fly up out of the vegetation. We felt sure more Blue-winged Teal than we saw were down in there, as well as goodness knows what else. An exceptionally fierce swarm of mosquitoes was also there; we're positive of our identification of them. Another interesting sighting on this drive was in a little mud flat in one corner of a cow pasture on FM 362 and Roehen Road, There, just across the fence and no more than 20 to 30 feet from us were Pectoral, Solitary and Baird's Sandpipers, Yellowlegs, Long-billed Dowitchers and Killdeer, Such fun, not having to strain one's eyes in making an identification! NEW MEMBERS We are quite pleased to welcome several new members this month and hope they take full advantage of the opportunity to join the group in attending the very interesting programs and field trips scheduled for the remainder of the year.
