COMPILERS COMMENT -- by Tie Emanuel Despite a strong southerly wind (up to 23 mph) and the lack of rain, 6l observers (a record for any U. G. C. spring count) managed to equeal last years 229 species. The effect of the favorable flying weather was most noticeable in warblers, only 19 species being seen as compared with individuals of 28 species in 1958. Thrushes were more numerous at Galveston than most other land bird migrants. Only one party got a chuck-wills- widow and several common warblers were exclusives. The most unusual species observed was a SURF SCOTER seen by Arlie K. McKay at Cove, followed by a VARIED BUHTIHG at Rockport and a STARLING on Galveston Island by Joe M. Heiser et al (one was seen there on April 23 by Nancy Strickling and Louise Hoffman) Other unusual birds on the count included yellow-headed blackbirds and western tanager (seen at same location as on April 21 of previous week) by the Snyders, Baird's sandpiper on High Island by Heiser party, late rufous-sided towhees (one spotted, one red-eyed) by parties 7 aad 13i white-tailed hawk by two parties (11 and 13) black duck by party 8, sparrow hawk by party 11 was an unusually late record, Swainson's warbler by party 12 at Galveston. Migration was much better (or at least inclement weather forced migrants down) during the first half of the week preceding the count. A oool front moving through the area on April 21st from the north west brought several western strays with it, several of whieh stayed for the count. Clear skies and warm weather on Friday and Saturday preceding the count permitted most downed migrants to move on before the count. Shorebirds were found in good numbers. The rare species listed above compensated for the lack of warblers. ************* SPECIES LIST BY PARTY - Exclusive species, one party only - Recorded by two or more parties - Ho previous Roundup record
