Transcript ? VOLUME XXII, NO. 5 SEPTEMBER, 1973 PUBLISHED' W TH-! OJ-HtROlOGy GROUP, OUTDOOR NAtUR-J -LUB, HOUSTON, TEX A a NEWS FLASH: Possibly due to the unsettled weather, a Black-throated Gray Warbler was sighted on September 9th at Brannon's Woods, near the barn area, on High Island, by Noel Pettingell, Elric McHenry, and Ben Feltner. NOW IS THE TIME TO KEEP YOUR EYES TO THE SKIES Recent sightings include Mississippi Kites, Broad-winged Hawks, and . Swainson's Hawks, and probably many more that have not been reported to us. Looks like fall migration is upon us'. REPORT ON THE NEW CHECKLIST Noel Pettingell is working on the new checklist, and has reported that the preliminary work is finished, with the main part drawn up, and the accidentals are the next to be worked on. The main list came out to 332 species (the last checklist had 319), and it will include the new AOU changes, but will indicate the subspecies in parentheses. It will probably be ready for publication towards the end of the year. .AND MORE ABOUT THE RINGED TURTLE DOVES - by Margaret Jones We are, by bits and pieces and hook and crook, finding out more about our Bellaire colony of Ringed Turtle Doves. It seems, according to Johnnie Fay Barnette, who did some detective work for me, that a neighbor of hers raised these birds in cages in his back yard. But, when he moved out of the state this spring, he released the birds. How many, we don't know. But, at least twelve birds have been seen recently, including five immatures, also two nests; so they must be in the process of establishing themselves in the wild. Just today, Sept. 2, we saw a female on the same nest where Marilyn Crane, Paul and I had seen a fledgling a week or so earlier. A pair of adults with an immature also were seen today in the vicinity of a second nest across the street. The two nests were both In Catalpa trees. These nests can be easily seen from the street; however, we believe there are others, perhaps in trees in back yards that we don't know about. With the Bristers and Sarah Gordon we saw ten birds 'today, including several immatures. The bill and the back-of-the-neck ring are very black on the adult birds, while the bill of the immature is a dusky red and the ring Is smudged and not clearly defined. Apparently this is the first nesting here in the wild and It is going to be interesting to see what the next year brings. We are hoping that since these doves were reportedly raised in outdoor cages they will be acclimated and survive our winter. There are a number of people in that area that put out wind bird' scvl in feeders so the feeding problem should be minor.
