Nineteen birders were on hand for this trip which got underway at 9:15 a.m., under the able leadership of Darris Massingill. Biggest "find" at the park was a Small-billed (Northern) Waterthrush, which was at first thought to be a Cardinal or Carolina wren. The nine-car caravan, including the writer's brand-new Bel Air (had to keep pace with the other prosperous birders'. —see Aug. 20 field trip), proceeded along at a typical "'Sunday-driver** snail-pace with frequent bird stops, much to the consternation and impatient frustration of non-birding motorists I Me ran into ''intermittent showers11 at about 11:30, but this, of course, failed to dampen in the least the spirits of the birders, whose unlimited patience was rewarded by the sight (at the Kemah bridge) of a beautiful flock of white pelicans wheeling about in a wide circle overhead. The showers had ended (temporarily) when the group ,!joined forces" with Edna .iner and Mable Kaiser at ''Breezy Nook*1, headquarters for all bird-watchers "working11 the rich in migrants Kemah area. Mrs. miner and Miss Kaiser had already identified an Olive-sided flycatcher, Canada and Tennessee warblers, and spotted sandpiper. i Picnic lunches were spread at this point, but shortly thereafter eating was interrupted by a rather heavy "intermittent shower." Despite the precipitation, however, a number of unusual birds were added to the list while we were at Kemah, including Red-eyed, White-eyed, and Yellow-throated Vireos and Black and white warbler. The group next headed north via the Seabrook marshes, thence out of the intermittent shower area, and then on to the Baytown Tunnel. Here were added the Wood Ibis, Avocet, Stilt, Black-crowned Night Heron, Black-bellied and Ringed Plovers, both Yellowlegs, and the ever-present Horned Larks.
