CLEARING HOUSE NOTES Mallard: Two drakes in pond behind Galveston newspaper; gr,e'eir+heads, white breasts, red neck bands; seen in good light from 30 to 50 feet with 20x scope. To my knowledge domestic Mallards have not been Introduced to this pond. Mallard drakes and hens have been observed in this pond since early fall (fide G&J Clayton).—Ted Eubanks, Jr. Canvasback: Adult male seen well In water near dike road by all 4 observers. Distinctive white body and head profile clearly noted. Species present in large numbers at this site all winter. —Noel PettingelI Scaup, Greater: Single scaup observed with Surf Scoters north of High Island Pier; bird observed In flight as well as in the water; black head and neck; white breast and belly; white wing stripe extending through majority of primaries; observed in excellent light with lOx glasses from 100 feet. —Ted Eubanks, Jr. Oldsquaw: Male. Slate-blue bill with pinkish, broad, subterminal band. Blackish head, neck, and anterior belly, except for a grayish area on side of face. White sides, dark back with rusty scapulars, black tail beginning to "pin". Seen in excellent light at 25 feet. —David Dauphin HAWK, ROUGH-LEGGED: This hawk has been reported at this location since last fall. Now, I am sorry to report that survey teams and markers are now in the field along WiIcrest Dr., so this could mean the last season in this area for this hawk and the Caracara, and the Swainson's, etc. —Debbie DeKeyser Falcon, Peregrine: Swooped into treetop as I watched Thrushes at North Blvd. Well over a foot in perched length; long, pointed, sharply elbowed wings; "sideburns"; five semi-definite dark bands under tall. Distance 60 feet, 5:30 p.m., excellent light, 7x35 binoculars. —George Howe
