FOLLOW UP ON "THE ANSWER?"...by Jim Morgan In the April, 1978 SPOONBILL, my article titled "The AnswSm?" proposed that the sharp decline in numbers of many wintering species on the UTC was due to the mortality of many birds during the previous winter. Evidence at the time of the article came from UTC records of numbers of birds observed this winter coupled with observations cited in the Nesf-lng Season Reports of 1977 in American Birds, November 1977. Since April, the next two volumes of American Birds have been published which contain The Breeding Bird Surveys and The Fall Migration Reports of 1977. Widespread regional reports, utilizing hundreds of observers and.numerous banding stations, from north and east of our area correlate remarkably well with data and observations taken this past winter on the UTOJi'' The da+a from American Birds shows +ha+ those sp«stes whose numbers were down on the UTC this pds*winter (see ar+icle In AprN, 1978 SPOONBILL) were also in below average numbers on +he nesting grounds and during fall migration. For an example, take the case of the kinglets. Active UTC bIrders on the UTC noticed-the sharp decline in both kinglet species this past winter. Data from the Appalachian Region, Fall Migration Report, shows that Ruby-crowned Kinglets were down 56$ at one banding Station, down 65? at a second banding s+a+ion, and a+ a third banding station only 10 Ruby-crowned Kinglets were banded compared with a normal 400+! The figures for Golden-crowned Kingte+s were simMt$r> -This-pattern was similar for many species, in many regions, and these species'were precisely those that concerned the UTC birders'and Christmas Count CompiIer$ +hIs past winter.
