Observers: JM; also present - Kelly Bryan, Greg Lasly, Chuck sexton. TOD: 0820 on 8May88. Seen for 20-30 mln in good to very good light at 20-40 meters. Optics: 10x40 Zeiss and 22x bushnell scope. Habitat: Grassy Marsh Pond. Did not hear. Same size as about 30 White-faced Ibis nearby. Vigorously feeding with occasional stopping to preen. Several times birds came to an erect posture and remained motionless for 3-10 sec. Bird was a typical ibis - large, long legged and with long decurved bill; color mainly maroon-chestnut with irredescence of bronze, green and purple on folded wings; facial skin slaty-gray outlined above and below by sky-blue skin; no white feathering about face; facial blue skin came back to eye but did not go behind eye; in addition, the blue on top and on bottom appeared to "pinch in" in front of the eye; iris dark; legs were olive greenish-gray with contrasting red knees; bill color not noticeably different from White- faced. All nearby White-faced Ibis had red facialskin surrounded by white (feathering) which in all cases came around the eye. Leg color on all White-faced was pinkish-red and in proper light the iris could be seen as red. Even when the birds took flight, circled and set back down, the Glossy Ibis could immediately and easily be picked out on facial pattern alone - This was very strikingly different. A Glossy Ibis was reported from this location by Bill Grabner and others on 6May68 and seen again on 7May88 by several observers including Bryan, Lasley and Sexton. According to Lasley, the bird he observed on 7th differed in size and intensity of color on the facial (blue) skin. On 8May88, while still observing the Glossy Ibis described above, two other birders appeared and said they had seen a Glossy furthur down the road. It is clearly possible that there were two (or more) individuals in the area. The Glossy Ibis was just recently accepted by the Texas Bird Records Committee based on two records which included photographs and confirmation of photos and details by Doug Pratt and Ken Kaufman. One of these records was from the UTC on 21Aprll87 by a Field Guides Tour led by John Rowlett. More recently, a Glossy Ibis has been seen and photographed at Anahuac (John Arvin, Ted Eubanks,Jr., m.ob.) and Eubanks, et al, located two more in Chambers County on lMay88. Possibly, Glossy Ibis have "pushed" into the UTC this year in small numbers, but Just as likely, observers are being more aware and carefully looking at dark ibis flocks. 5/1/88 Rob RED-TAILED HAWK (Harlan's Form) Thacker Observed by Rob Thacker, Tom Michael and Derek Muschalek in East Waller County on Mayl. Our initial impression was that of a Northern Harrier except that the Hawk was' soaring and not near the ground. The base of the tail was very white. The tail had a white, pinkish color ending with a very dark tip to the tail. Bird was very dark black colored overall. Bird was a buteo shaped hawk. Wings had very dark black color in the forewing or patagial area extending out to the underwing coverts and carpal area, with the center or trailing edge of the wings having a mottled gray color. The head was dark black. Breast was a very mottled black and white color. This dark buteo was observed soaring and then it hovered severaltimes and proceeded to dive straight to the ground. After a few minutes the bird flew up and away with a soaring buteo type flight. Main impression was of a very dark.buteo with a white base to the tail extending to a dark tail tip. Bird observed about 10 min in excellent light. CLEARING HOUSE CODES - MAY,1988 County Location B = Brazoria AB=Armand Bayou C = Chambers AW=Anahuac F = Ft.
