ONE GOSHAWK SEEN JANUARY 12 AT SHELDON RESERVOIR. Ben Feltner submitted these detaik: J first spotted thk bird flying toward us from the open water at Sheldon Reservoir. It passed over the west dike which we were standing on (Larry G. Borella, Vic Emanuel and myself) to the north of us. It was in perfect, bright sunlight and about 25-30 yards away. Its flight was lekurely and permitted about 20 full seconds of observation. The following field marks were seen and noted by all three observers: 1) Large size: as big as a Red-shouldered or small Red- tailed Hawk. 2) Accipiterine "cut of jib": long-tail and rather heavy rounded wines. 3) A broad superciliary stripe that appeared white and made the head appear almost like an Osprey. 4) Coloration: underparts were light grey appearing very smooth and even; as opposed to the reddkh underparts of the adult Cooper's Hawk. The back was a light blue-grey. All three observers are convinced that the bird was Accipiter gentilk. Probably, judging from the size, a female. All with 8X40 binoculars. T.B. Feltner ATTENTION BIRDERS! To all of you birders who enjoy Bolivar Flats (and J know who you are): We haven't yet received a sufficient response to our request for volunteers to help at Bolivar Flats in the event of an oil spill. Several agencies are already slated to help with clean-up chores; we need people to scare or otherwke divert birds from oiled areas. Part of the permit process granting Houston Audubon Society a five-year stewardship of the Flats depends on our developing an oil spill plan. Should the worst come to pass, as it has recently in Alaska, the British Isles, the Andaman Sea and Spain, we will need to rely on HAS volunteers for help. Please call the Houston Audubon Society at 932- 1639 and give us your name and telephone number. J want to thank the people who have already called in — we have you in the computer!
