By Margaret Jonos After, our guide put us in an area at Welder Refuge (on tho OG fiold-»ti?lp-harch 26) ,in-.whlcJa wo found tho Olivb Sparrow, I asked if he had any owls stakod-out. Sinco tho Barn Owls sometimes use nesting boxes that have been put up around-tfe shoros of ono of therlakos, ho took u_.rthere, though ho didn't roally bollovo thoy woro yet using them. Wading through high weeds down -tho slopo to the box, I foand it to bo above my hoad, with the entrance nolo much too high to bo looked into, ox- copt with a stop-ladder. So I reached up and rappod smartly on tho side of tha' box, once, hoard nothing, and rappod again. Wo11, I thought Vesuvius was erupting, with much wild lurching insido, and when that owl's face appeared in hor doorway, there was some wild lurching on my part, as I stumbled backward, yelling "It's hero, it really is hare™! Everyone flooked down the slopo and got a good look at her as she lookod us over. Then her eyes very slowly closed, and sho very'Slowly sank out of sight, and no amount of rapping would bring hor up again for the benefit of the photographers among us. But wo thanked hor for lotting several of IIS add her to our life list. BALD, SAGES AND OSPREY SURVEY We received tho following letter ffrom James U, Cross, Executive Director of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, asking for aid in a survey of Bald Eagle, and Osproys in Texas.; to_ "The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department is continuing its survey to determine tho populatien, .density, and. nesting tronds of tho- Amoriean Bald Eagle and American' Osproy in this State, WoTWould like'to solicit your cooperation and aid in the completion of this study. Theso data will allow the Department to ostablish population levels on Toxas fish hawks and- oaglos. Wo also hope to determine the nesting success of these endangered species so that future problems that might arise with those birds can bo carefully monitored. Enclosed you will find a form on which we would like for you to sharo your knowledge of obsorved birds and existing na*t locations of these species. Tho data that wo dosire consists of the (l)oxaet location of observed birds, (2)oxact location of active or inactive nests (county and directions to the nost site), and (3)a brief description of tho nesting site (species of tree, alive or doad, whether the area is forested or open, etc.), Such descriptions will enable us to locate these nests in future years. Nest sites reported in this survey will bo subsequently visited to determine more specific information. Additional forms can be obtained from this office (Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, John H. Reagan Building, Austin, Toxas 78701). Wo appreciate your cooperation in helping us continue this survey." LETTER FROM JOE M.
