Transcript Dickcissel! AU. w of Bellville (1) 16, W Sparrow. Savannahi WA, s. Hebert (1) 4, W. There are no records for the 1st week of Oct. on the Checklist of neighboring Upper Texas Coast. 3 mi* from the area where the bird was seen* Also WA (3), s. Hebert on 16, W — see notes. Sparrow. Vesperi CO, Attwater (several seen) 30, R Sparrow, Larki AU, Industry (3) 2, W Sparrow, Chipping! MO (l) 15> RT Sparrow, Lincoln'si WA, se. of Hebert Rd, Pond about 3 mi., (1) 4. w NOTES. Least Grebei Seen by the Rissers near Attwater Prairie Chicken National wildlife Refuge, this species has been observed several times in recent years in the area. It may be a rare to uncommon species there. Further observation in the future will tell us more about this species. Ross' Goosei Seen by the Rissers at Attwater, this bird is most easily and quickly recognized if it is flying with Snow Geese. It is much like a miniature Snow Goose. in flight it is only about 2/3 Snow Goose size. Ferruginous Hawki Seen by the Rissers at Attwater. Careful notes were made on this October 30 observation. Rufous back areas and shoulders were seen, as were rufous leggings. Whitish tail with rusty tip, whitish wing windows also were noted. 3R0AD-TAILED HUMMINGBIRDS An immature male or perhaps a female of this species was observed at the Hebert Road Pond on Oct. 8 by Steve Williams, Gary Clark, Beverly Williams, Randi Clark and Valerie Hewitt. It was observed to be very rusty-buff on the sides under the wings* had a greenish back with no trace of rufous, and rusty tail feathers white-tipped at the sides. It was observed to have a small dot of color on the throat, as well as some tiny spots* In bright sunshine on Oct. 9, similar observations were recorded by Don Richardson, who also got a look at the color spot on the bird's throat. The color was magenta, which color is recorded in the Handbook of North American Birds. Vol. 1, p. 4, in the color chart (Palmer is the author). No other Selasphorus-type hummingbird (the Rufous and Allen's also belong to this genus, and are somewhat similar in the female and immature plumages) has magenta in any plumage as its throat color, although red-orange and red are noted, according to Oberholser's The Bird Life Of Texas. This is the first record for Waller County. According to the Checklist of the neighboring UTC, "there are only four observations of this species there* One bird was present during March and April, and the others were seen in October, November and December. Rufous Hummingbirdi This bird was seen by Billie Rae Tanner, on or about October 23* according to the Piney Woods Rare Bird Tape, at Porter. Although the species is uncommon but regular in fall and early winter, this is the first record for Montgomery County known to me; records are reported by Oberholser. CHIHUAHUAN (WHITE-NECKED) RAVENi One bird was seen at Attwater by the Rissers on October 30* Its croaking call, distinctive tail, sailing flight and shaggy throat were seen. Its crow- size dist nguished it from a Northern Raven, even though the white neck was not seen* Savannah Sparrowi This bird was seen on the roadside about 2 miles se. of Hebert Road Pond by Steve Williams. It matched a Savannah, but was quite early, according to UTC Checklist. Typists for the month. Barbara Darr Wanda Smith
