Transcript Page 2 The group is deeply indebted to Hrs. Longenbaugh for her kindness in escorting us over the area. Several ears returned by way of Katy, and at one spot, a group of about eight Caracara were observed, on the ground, on a fence, and in flight, la addition to the above, the following speeies were observed: pied-billed grebe; Snowy egret; Marsh hawk; Sparrow hawk; Blaek and Turkey vulture; Bobwhite; Chimney swift; Cowbird; Lineoln's sparrow. Altogether cur list included 65 speeies although wo were unsueeessful in locating the Cattle Egret whieh had been seen in this area on October 6 and 7. Those making the trip were Armand Yramategui, Mr. and Mrs. Tom Daniel, Ella Wolfor, Lute Buchanan, Carl Aiken, Vie Emanuel, Sally Longenbaugh, Video Evans, Lueille Reboy, Leota Stilwell, Carrie Holeomb, Edna Minor, Thelma Smith, Jimmy Murray, Johnny Murray, Cenrad Deats, Josiephine Wilkin, Henry and Mickey Aldrieh, Horace Jeter, Ronald Fowler, John O'Neill, Maurine Jarrell, Noel Perley, Etta Coffman, Norma Oates, Louise and Henry Hoffman, Mr. and Mrs. C. B. Gilman. Field Trip te San Jaeinto Battlegrounds-Cove - October 28 - (Vie Emanuel) We left our meeting place at Thornhill's Cafeteria on tho Gulf Freeway about 8:15 AM. and drove te San Jaeinto Battlegrounds. The morning was foggy and the sky remained overcast until noon. The reflection pool at the monument eentained several hundred Baldpates and Pintails as well as two Eared grebes. Proceeding around the San Jaeinto area we added many common species to our list sueh as Snowy Egret, Trieolered herons, Swamp sparrows and a Yellow-billed euekeo. In a clump ef trees, thick with Spanish moss, we found a large migration of small land birds - apparently forced down by the fog. Among tho bir-ds seen here were Goldon-erown kinglets, numerous Magnolia warblers, Pine, Tennessee, Orange- erewned, Blaek-throated-green, Yellow and Myrtle warblers and one Slate-colored junco. On the Miller-cut-off Road we saw White-crowned sparrows, Starlings and a Wood thrush. Forester's terns, one Royal tern and Deuble-erested cormorants as well as Horned larks were found at the Baytown Tunnel. Enreute te Ceve Franklin's gulls, Blue and Snow Geese, end a Red-shouldered hawk were observed. After a pienie lunch at the home of Mr. Arlie McKay, he took the group en a tour ef his farm. Mr. McKay has kept detailed* records.; / of tho birds in the Ceve area fer many years jM'4 Before we arrived he had seen a brown ereeper and solitary vireo. On tho previous day Mr. McKay had listed a total ef 96 speoies. We wore unsueeessful in our seareh fer the Green-tailed tewheo seen by Mr. McKay en the previous week-end but we added the Red-wiaged blackbird, Yellowthroat, Redstart, Barred owl, Yellow-bellied sap- suekar and Downy woodpecker te our list. After leaving Hr, McKay's farm wo drove te a fishing eamp on Old River, Hero we saw Common snipe, an American bittern and a female Vermilion flycatcher. After a step at HeCellum Park whore we found no new birds we drove south along tho bay te Swan Marsh. Here we found Seaside sparrows, Lesser yellowlegs, and Dowitchers. We had hoped to break a hundred on this trip but it was rapidly getting dark with enly 88 speeies en eur list. Unfortunately this was an in-between period when the main fall migration was ever and the mass of winter birds had net yet arrived. Cur last speeies fer the trip was added en tho east side of Cedar Bayou when wo flushed a juvenile Virginia Rail by the roadside in a flooded field, thus giving us a total ef 89 for the day. Members attending this trip were Ella Wolfer, Helen Wolfer, Carrie Holeomb, Leota Stilwell, Norma Oates, Josiephine Wilkin, Mr. and Hrs. Tern Daniel, Thelma Snith, Jimmy Murray, Noel Perley, Carl Aiken, Vic Emanuel, Horace Jeter and Mr. and Hrs. C.B.Gilman. FALL MIGRATION REPORT - GALVESTON ISLAND - Oetober 1956 October 7, 1956 (Observers Vie Emanuel and Carl Aiken) Galveston Island remains in a condition of drought despite recent rains. Sweetwater Lake was about a third full and here we feund our enly dueks - about a hundred. Wo saw both blue aad snow geese flying ever West Galveston and found numerous Long-billed curlews, Horned larks and Blaek-bellied plover en the golf eeursos. Swallow migration continued, including Barn, Cliff and Rough- winged swallows. Black skimmers and reddish egrets (1) were still present. Crossing ever te Bolivar wo feund numerous shorebirds on the flats, including about 8 or mere Piping plover and several Snowy plover. In seme brush near the ferry landing we feund Brown thrashers, Blue-gray gnateatehers, a Ruby-erowned kinglet, several Blaek- •rewned night herons and a Peregrine faleonaoverhead. October 20, 1956 (Observers Carrie Heleemb and Leota Stilwell) The hunting season had epened and on Galveston Island we found hunters in many fields and around ponds where we usually feund birds. The west end ef the island produced very little. Cloud* were in the sky and it looked as if it would be a vary dreary day bird-wise and weather- wise. About four o'eleek we went te the jetties at the eastern end of tho island. There was a heavy black eleud behind us and suddenly in the east there appeared a beautiful perfect double rainbow with both ends ef each rainbow extending down into the Gulf. '
