'■,'. | Two parties reported seeing the Brewster's Warbler in Kempner Park (4/8/6I & 4/IO/6I. See Clearing House),. Linda. Snyder gives the following description of the warbler: " Gold forehead^ black line through eye, vhite underparts with a breast patch of yellow and unite wingbars." Jerry Strickling has this to report: ""This warbler was yellow on the throat and head'. — they usually have only a-yellow spot on their breast. It also had white wing bars." Sounds like two different Brewster'si.' 1 SECOND. HOUSTON SPRING CENSUS April 30, 1961 * * * * Compiled by Mabel Deshayes: TOTAL PARTICIPANTS:: 38 observers in 9 parties. Seven more observers than last year with 5 less species of birds reported in this Spring Count (May 19&J "Spoonbill"). It does not seem to be the observers but the WEATHER: temperature range 66° to 79°; sky:: partly cloudy; the weak cool front ifcich we had last year we got. TOTAL SPECIES: 192 wind: SE all day. Without TOTAL INDIVIDUALS:: 32,987 SHORE BIRDS: Over half of the increase in individuals -fiiis year over the Hast spring count is accounted for in the number of Semipalmated Sandpipers, Western Sandpipers, Phalaropes and Dowitchers. Dry weather (which we hayehad plenty ofX tends te concentrate shore birds, and the Bin on April 29, the day before the count, broke the dry spell without breaking up the flocks. WARBLERS; Four hundred and three, representing 27 speeies. The I960 Spring Census had 675 warblers, representing twenty-nine speeies. A difference of 272 identified warblers. Also it should be noted that this year there were not any unidentified warblers reported, and in I960 there were large numbers unidentified. The greater number of species and individuals of non-resident migrants last year than this year may be attributed to the fact that during the I960 migration ai series of wet northers produced a number of colossal staekups and generally slowed the northward movement of these birds for a period of weeks. 3a contrast we are now over halfway through the 1961 migration, and we have yet to experience even a'medium wave. Non-resident migrants have been trickling through, but this count seems to indicate that they have continued northward. CLOSING THE GAP: The remaining increase in this count's number of individuals is largely among the resident and resident migrants. Could it have been that in our attempt to find warblers to identify, we became more aware of these birds' The 1961 Count produced three species of ACCIDENTALS: 1 Cape May Warbler 1 Coue's Flycatcher 2 House Finches and s.high count on the swiftly migrating Buff-breasted Sandpipers:: 825. but sorely
