Our leader, Don Richardson, rounded up about 35 eager birders and headed them out to Joe Whitehead's property just north of Smith Point. Here Don pointed out some typical woodland species as well as a few hawks. Later, Gail Luckner brought us to Candy Abshier W.M.A. (Smith Point) to study those most difficult of accipiters. Sharp-shinned and Cooper's Hawks. From Smith Point, Don led us to Anahuac NW.R. for a tour of the refuge that ended with rails calling tantilizingly close to us but which never exposed themselves to our peering eyes. Thanks to Don and Gait for an enjoyable day of birding. David Bradford.
