Count- Noel Perely Up to this date only 6 out of 15 parties have sent their records to me at 3010 Prospect, Houston 4, Texas. However, there have been several unusual birds seen this year and out of these few parties 211 definite species have been reported. We have an excellent chance of beating last year's record and placing high in the nation. The June "Spoonbill™ will carry a complete report of the 1957 Spring Count. Weather and Migration- Vic Emanuel Oil April 21, San Jacinto Day, Carl Aiken and I made a spring migration run from San Jacinto Battleground to Galveston, Texas.

Mergansers and an Eared Grebe, At the golf course we saw only Black-bellied Plover and Horned Larks. Proceeding out S Road we turned to the right toward a fishing camp on West Bay. Here we found White Ibis, a Gull-billed Tern, a Whimbrel, and another Red-br, Merganser. We returned to S Road and continued on to Mulberry Grove. This area was indundated with migrants on the previous
