Transcript r" VOLUME XXIII, NO. 1 MAY, 1974 .miSlM) BV fHB .m.H0L66Y' GROUP, OOTSOdR. MAfUR5 CLUB, HOUSTON, TexTST HAVE YOU EVER HELD A PILEATED WOODPECKER IN YOUR HAND?-by Ed Taylor On April 28th, Marion and I had been on a little birding trip while camped at Martin Dies, Jr., State Park. This is on Lake Steinhagen or Dam B between Woodville and Jasper. As we approached the park entrance we saw a pileated woodpecker lying in the middle of the road. We ran back to see if the bird was dead or alive and were happy to see that it was alive. We brought it to the park office to see if we could try to save it. It could only He helpless on the ground. With permission granted, we brought it to our campsite where we gave it a little water, which seemed to revive it, for the bird nearly squawked its head off. In a little while it was able to fly to a tree trunk a hundred feet away, where it rested about an hour. After several short flights to different trees, it finally left us. It Is our hope that it recovered and that we kept the pileated woodpecker population from being decreased by one. (Hope the pictures turn out well.) MARCH OG FIELD TRIP - by Linda Hargrove Margaret Anderson led about 25 of us on a very interesting trip to Galveston on March 30, The weather couldn't have been better: sunny, calm, with the termperatures in the 70's. We started at Kempner Park and saw many white-eyed vireos and yellow throated vireos plus some beautiful warblers, notably a prothonotary warbler and hooded warblers. Adjourning to the Seawall Boulevard we were delighted to see an immature Iceland Gull which sat and posed, on a post until we all had an opportunity to observe him carefully. Margaret said a sighting of this North Atlantic bird In Texas has never before been accepted as valid. Our caravan of cars moved out to Sportsmans Road (and the "Rail Road") where we got a good view of an American Bittern "frozen" in the reeds. Many waders and shorebirds were seen here. Going west on Stuart Road we stopped at several ponds and observed a tree frog, a bull frog and several red-eared pond sliders (turtles) as well as more birds. A group of groove billed anis were feeding across from the site of the new state park at 13 mile road. The total number of species during the morning was 99 end Jim and I, who were staying at Galveston for the weekend, saw several more later, including 2 short-eared owls hunting at Galveston State Park. Paul and Phyllis Nimmons had stopped at Spaceland Airport on the way down to Galveston and saw Prairie Chickens "drumming" in the early morning light. We all appreciated the time and effor': Margaret Anderson had spent scouting the area and leading such a -ewarding trip.
