PAST EVENTS by Mark Kulstad On Saturday, January 10, Marilyn Crane led a group of birders on an 0G field trip to CInco Ranch, near Addicks. The highlight of the outing was a stunning view of a Le Conte's sparrow. Birders were searching a field for sparrows when.someone spotted a Le Conte's perched in a bush at the field's edge. Members of the group converged on the spot, thinking perhaps that the sparrow would disappear before they could get a good look at it. Instead, the bird sat almost motionless, in good light, for several minutes. Birders settled In for close study of a sparrow they might never see as well again. Marilyn Crane took several pictures, some from very close range, as the bird posed prettily for all to see. Some of the other birds seen on the outing (in all 82 species were identified) were the American Bittern, Cinnamon Teal, Cooper's Hawk, Caracara, Sandhill Crane, American Woodcock, Solitary Sandpiper, Purple Finch, Henslow's, Harris' and Fox Sparrows, and a large owl (perhaps more than one?) which was variously claimed to be "eared*' or "earless".
