Transcript Page FROM THE DESK OF W, J. WISSELi written April 13, 1970 I was so excited this past week-end with all the birds at Galveston Island I had to call someone so I telephoned Wallace C, Mebane, Jr, He suggested that I -report my sightings. We have a beach house at Sea Isle, W, Galveston Island, and Saturday and Sunday, my wife Ruth Ann and children witnessed the following birds, all within a haof mile of our beach house: Yellow-billed Cuckoo Rufous Hummingbird Kentucky Warblers Summer Tanagers Orchard Orioles Hooded Warblers Indigo Buntings Anerican Redstarts Baltimore Orioles Black & White Warblers Cerulean Warblers Blue Gray Gnatchatchers Yellow-throat Warblers Golden Winged Warblers Ovenbirds Blue Grosbeaks Wilson Warblers Painted Buntings Prothonatoray Warblers Yellow-throated Warblers Starlings Meadowlarks Green Heron Reddish Egrets Forester's Terns Least Terns Willets Belted Kingfishers Laughing Gulls Snowy Egrets Common Egrets Cattle Egrets Little Blue Herons Blaok-necked Stilts Boat-tailed Grackles La. Herons Yellow-crowned Night Heron Eared Grebes Clapper Rails Ring-billed Gulls Ruddy Turnstones Red-winged Blackbird Blue-winged Teal Eastern Kingbirds Purple I'iartins Scissor-tailed Flycatcher Barn Swallows Lesser Yellowlegs Great Blue Heron Anerican Coots I also took one roll of 8 mm Movie film of nothing but birds, and am leaving it today for development. Naturally, I did not film all of these birds but I did of many of the smaller birds, The entire week-end excited me so much that I someone. just had to share the information with WHOOPING CRANE MIGRATION From Signal Smoke, newsletter of the Travis Audubon Society, we "lifted" the information that the Whooping Cranes began leaving Aransas Wildlife Refuge for their 2,500 mile journey to northwest Canada on April 3> and by Thursday, April 16, all but a family of three of the 56 that wintered there had gone. NOTES FROM TEXAS PARKS AND 'WILDLIFE DEPARTMENT NEWSLETTERS Bobwhite are not usually considered a migratory bird, but Department biologist Don Davis is beginning to wonder. Last October Davis tagged and spray-painted 442 birds for tracing purposes on the Matador Wildlife Area near Paducah, expecting the birds to stick around long enough for some data collection. Just about the only birds collected out of the bunch were five shot south of Chillicothe in Hardeman County, about 50 air miles from the point of release. All of us interested in birds have run into problems with young hunters with BB guns, and many of their targets are bird species protected by state or federal law. Bob Cross, coordinator for law enforcement for the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, has issued a reminder that only four species of birds remain unprotected by either state or federal statute. These are starlings, English Sparrows, Crows and Ravens, and these may be protected by city ordinances preventing the use of firearms within city limits. Recent state legislation gave protection to 11 additional Texas bird species which were formerly unprotected. All native North American speoies of hawks and falcons are protected and may be taken and possessed under permit only. The Department is not empowered to issue permits allowing the use of any North American hawk or falcon in the sport of falconry . 'WETLANDS PRESERVATION The National Wildlife Federation has reported on new efforts being made to retain and expand the remaining natural wetlands of the United States,, mainly in the north-centril states, for purposes which include improving the habitat of migratory waterfowl. In the House of Representatives, House Resolution 15570 has come out of the sub-committee on Fisheries and Wildlife Conservation, of which John Dingell of Michigan is chairman. The measure has attracted bi-partisan support.
