CLEARING HOUSE NOTES The following species were seen in normal number and were not included in the Clearing House: Pied-billed Grebe, Great Blue Heron, Little Heron, Great Egret, Snowy Egret, Louisiana Heron, Marsh Hawk, American Kestrel, Bobwhite, American Coot, Red- bellied Woodpecker, Yellow-rumped Warbler, American Goldfinch, Savannah Sparrow, Seaside Sparrow, and White-throated Sparrow. Red-throated Loon: This loon contrasted markedly with Common Loons we had been view- ing from the Texas City Dike. Principal differences were in bill shape and smaller apparent size. Description: Appears smaller and more slender than Common Loon—slender grayish bill with lower mandible appearing shorter than upper due to tapered point; thus bill looks "upturned" —brownish gray cap (down to eye level) and nape— brown back mottled with white—white cheeks, chin, throat, front of neck, and under- parts—red eye—rides water with "water line" at contact between white underparts and brown wings. Conditions for observation: Observed bird preening Itself for 15 minutes- then bird dove and would surface only for seconds—bright sun perpendicular to lin^ of sight—bird in "moat" on west side of hurrican levee at distance of 75-100 yards— observed with 7x50 and 8x40 binoculars and 15-60 B&L scope. —Chuck & Suzi Campbell Olivaceous Cormorant: Birds seen at rest on stakes. In water, and overhead, from 100 yds. to a few feet. They were in company with Double-crested. They were much smaller, darker, lacked yellow throat pouch. Their throat pouch ended in a "V" rather than a diagonal. Used 10x50 Binocs. — David & Jan Dauphin Wood Stork: Saw 3 birds on November 2, and 2 birds on November 6 at approximately 100 yat*ds in the #3 Exxon Lagoon. Used 20-60x teles. Birds were all standing at shore line. They had naked, bark-like heads and necks, large white bodies with black wing linings showing. —David & Jan Dauphin Rough-1 egged Hawk: Bolivar Hwy 87, 3 mi. east of ferry; dark phase; on pole beside highway; allowed approach to within 20 yds*; sitting: all uniform dark brown; legs feathered to feet (especially front of legs); feet yellow, eye hazel; Flushed: wings held in dihedral when soaring like Tur^y . Vulture and Marsh Hawk; underside of primaries and secondaries were silver; upperside of primaries only were silver; otherwise all dark; hovered frequently with body held at 30-40° angle to the ground, espe-
