UNUSUAL SIGHTING FOR NEW MEMBERS We received the following very interesting letter from new members Margaret and Paul Jones, who also contributed a number of sightings for the Clearing House. We are always glad to hear from any member, for without your letters there would not be much Spoonbill, but we are especially happy to hear from new members to help with our publication. "On a visit April 26 to the weekend farm home of some friends located on Farm Road 150, about _■ mile north of the intersection of 150 and 1097, out of Willis, were very surprised to see the Curve-billed Thrasher. Having seen this bird in the Valley a number of times at Brownsville, Santa Ana Wildlife Refuge, Bentsen State Park, as well as out near Llano, we associated him with that area, and surely didn't expect to see him in Walker County. However, we were privileged to observe him for more than five minutes, while he sat on a fence not 20 feet away from us. It was an open, unobstructed view, and his red eye was busy looking us over as we carefully inspected him. We abandoned the confrontation before he did, for we wanted to continue our walk, but we saw him on our return to the house, though this time he was trying to conceal himself in a tree in the dooryard. This was our prize for the day, in a list that included the Brown-headed Nuthatch, Hairy Woodpecker, Green Heron, and a nice number of others.
