A ten-car chain, Chevrolets predominating, left at about 8:30 to investigate feird life on properties in the direction of Magnolia. Unfortunately, the last link fell off and this was not noticed for some "time. However, the search car, ably led by Mrs. Margaret Kitzman, located the wayward one and a full complement arrived at the Nicholas property. This features two lakes, mixed woodland, and some dense thicket. The lake was dominated in the eyes of this party by a Bald Eagle, immature, perched on a dead tree. A second immature was also present. This find put Mr. John Kitzraan^s stock,as leader of the tour, at a very high level, where it remained for the rest of the day. Later, many members saw five of these birds, 2 adults and 3 immatures wheeling in the sky and several vultures conveniently hung around for us to make a good comparison. For the convenience of members, several parties of small birds displayed under a stand of pine trees, darting in and out in the bright sunshine. Particularly prominent were Bluebirds, Pine Warblers and Juncos. Many came so close to us that binoculars were a hindrance. Further along the path around the lake, a good view was had of Red-headed Woodpeckers and a Yellow- shafted Flicker. Unfortunately, most of the ducks originally on the lake left by the time we were in a position to look at them with the sun behind us; however, most members had an excellent view of a Ring-necked Duck. The more adventurous ignored the thorns to visit various thickets whieh were very rewarding. Even they were unable to locate Red-cockaded Woodpeckers amongst the fine stands of timber. Interestingly, the Cedar Waxwings and Robins which had been seen in these woods the previous week-end when the weather was cold and cloudy were conspicuous by their absence. After lunch in a clearing used by deer hunters in some woods off the road, the party moved on to Cam Wood hoping to find Wood Ducks but they had disappeared. However, three Pied-billed Grebes played hide-and-seek with us, and several members saw a Vermilion Flycatcher. In all, 59 species of birds were seen during the day as well as several mammals. The party broke up about 4:30 and several members used the remaining daylight to make side trips on the way home. Several cars converged at the lakes on the Hockley-Katy Cutoff and we were rewarded by fine views of Curlew, and Shoveler, Mallard and Pintail Duck, and later, by a large group of Sandhill Cranes, as well as many geese. The following species of birds were seen during the main trip: Brewer's and Redwinged Blackbird, Eastern Bluebird, Bobwhite, Cardinal, Chickadee, BrownC-headed Cowbird, Brown Creeper, Common Crow, Mourning Dove Bing-necked Duck, Lesser Scaup, Am. Widgeon, Bald Eagles, Yellow-shafted Flicker, Vermilion Flycatcher, Am. Goldfinch, Snow Goose, Boat-tailed Grackle, Common Grackle, Pied-billed Grebe, Marsh, Red-shouldered, Red-tailed and Sparrow Hawks, Great Blue Heron, Blue Jay, Slate-colored Juneo, Kildeer, Belted Kingfisher, Golden-orowned Kinglet, Ruby-crowned Kinglet, E.
