Transcript Page 3 out birders. And all the guides are familiar with the.Jacanas and their whereabouts. The cost is $12 a boat (2 passengers), and arrangements can be made by calling George Rayburn's office at Brown & Root, 676-4204, and asking for Pat Kirl'and, who makes appointments. Sometimes the birds can be seen from the bridge on Brazoria 25 near the entrance, but the sure way Is to take a boat. Directions: Hwy 288 south to Angleton, west on Hwy 35 to Brazoria 25 (just immediately past the Brazos River bridge), north approximately 6 miles to Maner Lake (on right, Eagle Nest Lake on left). An alternate route, and a very enjoyable one is to go to Richmond, turn south, on 762 to 1462, left to second gravel road on right: Cow Creek road, which, in a short while, at the county line, becomes Brazoria County road 25. Continue to Maner Lake. Last year a concentration of Sandhill Cranes were seen between the county line and Maner Lake, estimated at more than 800. Expect to see at this time of year many geese along 762, and perhaps a White-tailed Kite near Smither's Lake area. ** Exciting news from Santa Ana NWR for the month of December includes Green Parakeets at Willow Lake, several Poor wills, a Rose-throated Becard, a beardless flycatcher, and the resident Clay-colored Robin around headquarters. But the birds reported were the five Hook-billed Kites (seen by four of our local birders: Norma Oates, Virginia Courtney, Margaret Anderson and Charlotte Johnson). PLACES TO GO The place to go right now is still Warren Ranch Lake with all its Bald Eagles, geese, and ducks. Even a Peregrine Falcon was reported there last month. Margaret Anderson and her son, last January 2nd, saw no less than _L3 Bald Eagles, 2 adults, and II im- matures. Most observers are seeing at least 2, 3 or more at any time they visit the lake. The Anna's Hummingbird, at a feeder at 7821 Arberry, has reached full male plumage and is singing up a storm, which Margaret Anderson says is an indication he will soon be moving on. If you want to see him (and if he is still there), call Mrs. Byrd - 643-4125. To reach her home, turn off 610 South at Broadway, go north one block to Glover, turn west, go one block (alongside school), turn right and then left on Arberry the house is the third on the right. The feeder hangs by her kitchen window over the the driveway. Mrs. Byrd is an accomplished lapidary, and also has a beautiful collection of Pacific Ocean shells, that would be mouth-watering to a member of the Conchol- ogy Group. A Glaucous Gull was seen at Texas City Dike January 7th, following a shrimp boat in company with many Laughing, Ring-billed, and Herring Gulls. A comparison in size was easy, with this large white bird flying alongside the other gulls. Since the end of the dike is so close to Bolivar, it is believed he may wing back and forth:between the two places. Some people are asking where they can see Sandhill Cranes. Of course, W. Harris Co. Is the prime answer, with Fort Bend and Brazoria counties next. But there has been, for the past couple of years or more, a colony on W. Galveston Island, in fields between Jamaica Beach and Sea Isle. Saturday, January 10th, observers reported more than 100 in that area, some no more than 25 feet'from the fence.
