Transcript Yet another party led by Canadian David Mark consisted of Houstonians: Robert Thacker, Carol Sloan and Larry White. Under Dave's aegis they found Singing Quail, Azure-crowned Hummingbird and Flame-colored Tanager as their quality birds. Their total of 83 species tied the El Salto party. Incidentally Larry White, a relative novice in the birding game, is rapidly displaying those careful talents that make for a good birder. The final party consisted of Angus Brown, June Smith, Linda and me. We birded the western third of the circle as usual. Our on again, off again water supply, Laguna Larga, was on this year, so we recorded 12 species of ducks including Canvasback and Cinnamon Teal. Our most spectacular birding came when we discovered over 100 orioles in a small citrus orchard. The fence consisted of living prickly pear, and the birds were feeding on ripe cactus fruit. Six species were represented including a rare Black- Vented Oriole and several Scott's Orioles which were new to the count. Presumably the freeze in the eastern area was responsible for this concentration in the west. Despite the cold weather, count day started at 38°F and did not break 70°F all day, we totalled 231 species and all participants thoroughly enjoyed themselves. A universally shared spectacle of about 150 Military Macaws, present for several days, was probably everyone's highlight. There is somethine unique and curiously pleasing about watching a big flock of colorful macaws while one is clothed in down jackets and gloves. It will be a pleasant scene to recall on some Houston July day. QUaw*£ tfeutc JANUARY, 1984 The Clearing House is a mon made on the Upper Texas Species!
