Transcript Page 2 Letters to the Editors Dear B & M Nancy, G. W, Foster, Jr. of Madison, ''isconsin, and I visited McMullen County, near George West, Texas on Sunday, January 14, 1962. This was after the freeze. The weather was clear, 10-15 MPH wind from the South, and the temperature range was 45 to 70 degrees. Things of interest we saw were: Pa raque (l)(at the same location where we found the nest in March, 1959. Saw another or the same one 30 yards away.) Olive Sparrow (2); Black-headed (Audubon) Oriole (4). mature adults; Sage Thrasher (1); Long-billed Thrasher (4); Cassin's Sparrow (l). The regular birds in good numbers were: Curve-billed Thrashers, common to abundant; Pyrrhuloxia, abundant; Cardinal, abundant; Cactus and Bewick's Wren, common; Black-throated, Vesper, Savannah Sparrows, abundant; Bobwhite and Blue Quail, common; Horned Owl, common; Harris, Red-tailed and Marsh Hawks, common. Jerry S. Dear Editors: On Jan. 17 my husband and I identified 45 species of birds in approximately 2 hours. This is a record for us in this length of time. We were thrilled to see the Roadrunner. On our way home we rounded a curve to see a Bobcat standing in the middle of the road, the first time for us to see a live one. Sincerely yours, Arthur & Janice Buckels Dayton, Texas Back vard Bird Count I had a field day Sunday, January 28th. Mild and sunny after almost three weeks of rain and cold, the feeders were very well patronized. A liberal supply of chicken scratch and bread crumbs were sprinkled on the ground. The feeders weEe filled with sunflower seed and crumbs. The fare offered evidently pleased the customers. Within a period of fifteen to twenty minutes, there were thirty or more birds representing fourteen species lunching in one way or another in an area approximately 100 by 185 feet. Represented were the following: Yellow-shafted Flicker, Red-bellied Woodpecker, Downy Woodpecker, Sapsucker, Carolina Chickadees, Tufted Titmouse, Cardinals, Brown Thrashers, Hermit Thrush, Red-breasted Nuthatch, many Myrtle Warblers, Pine Warbler, Mourning Dove and Blue Jays. A little previously, before the influx, I had also seen in the same yard, Carolina Wren, White-throated Sparrows, Cedar Waxwings, Robins, Ruby-crowned Kinglet, and American Goldfinch. I have seldom, if ever, done better in a lawn chair in my own back yard - twenty species without moving ten feet. Conrad Deats 46 Saddlebrook Houston 1961—Houston Christmas Count.
