Transcript Page 14 ^^ ^^ Sparrow, Clay-colored: Small size; light brown back, unstreaked breast; rump brown not gray; brown cheek or ear patch; crown not visible. Observed about 15 seconds.— Margaret Jones. SPECIAL REPORT TO THE CLEARING HOUSE FLYCATCHER, KISKADEE: (1)30, Smith's Woods, W,G&PC. First detected by the loud one- and two-note calls, which sound to me like a teddy bear when squeezed. Penny Cureton and I followed the sound, but never saw more than a heavy-bodied, reddish-winged passerine flying high over the live oaks. Later the bird alit directly over Glenn Cureton and some out-of-state birders, who noted the bright yellow belly, white throat, dark heavy beak and russet tall. We later learned that Ed & Marian Taylor had heard a Kiskadee earlier the same day, and somebody told Jim Morgan that the bird had been seen on Aprl 29. Apparently It was not seen or heard on May I. A Kiskadee was seen last April at Boy Scout Woods nearby, and has been recorded a number of times in Southwester Louisiana. —Wesley Cureton HERE'S AN UNUSUAL REPORT by Jerry Strlckling I thought it might be of interest to the Birders in the Houston area that at the present moment, Monday, April 25, 1977, at 9:00 a.m., a Red-Lored Parrot (Amazoni Autumnal Is—also called Yellow-cheeked) Is sitting outside my window on the 7th floor of the S.W. Bell Telephone Company Headquarter's building at 3100 Main. It is a mature adult and obviously doesn't have clipped wings and is not pinioned. The bird is quite common In Northeastern Mexico and is also commonly trapped and imported. I would presume It is an interesting escapee. (Could It have been attempting to apply for some sort of telephone operator's job? —C-H Editor) CLUB SCOPE AVAILABLE David Dauphin reminds us that the club scope and tripod Is available to members (rental—$1.00 a day). For you new birders, this Is an excellent opportunity to see for yourselves how a scope can enhance your birding. And for a I I who do not now own a scope, it is a great deal cheaper than buying one! Ted Eubanks, Jr. Is custodian of the scope, contact him when you wish to use It. (And speaking of scopes, the SPOONBILL editor had the privilege of viewing a virtuoso performance with one at Smith's Woods, May I, when birding In a group Including Bob Ringler, a birder from Maryland. Mr. Ringler was finding warblers, as well as unerringly zeroing in on warblers others called out, using nothing but his scope. He had a shoulder harness over one shoulder and under the other, a short shoulder rest, and a hand grip with which he could flip the scope up to his eye with one hand quicker than you could say Blackburnian Warbler! He found more birds than anyone else in the group, some of whom had wide-angle binoculars, and supposedly more viewing area. Impressed? You can bet we were!)
