Transcript the Frio. Prade is a unique spot, with excellent birding and the exicting drive of several miles down the Frio Canyon, in and out of the river bed. June Prade's Interest in birds is increasing and she allowed she would give a substantial discount from regular rates to a bunch of birders. Kerr State Park at Kerrville was also very attractive. We picked up a half dozen Common Bushtits there. Near Boerne we saw a Roadrunner, in bright spring plumage, sitting in a tree. Near the river at Boerne we saw Pine Siskins. At Austin, Mary Ann McClendon showed us many Golden-cheeked Warblers, but a singing Black-capped Vireo eluded us. The following week in Central Louisiana and back through Galveston was not particularly rewarding - weather was generally too. nice! Northern Waterthrush at High Island and Summer Tanager at Galveston. We had hoped for 200 species in this two week trip but had to settle for 178. F. P. Kokesh On Sunday, March 24, we went to Galveston by way of the Texas City Dike, While on the dike, we saw a Horned Grebe in flight and at rest on the water. We also saw a Gommon Loon, but no uncommon ones. Our best sighting was a pair of Eared Grebes (one male-one female) in Spring plumage. The male was a gorgeous sight with his golden ear tufts and crested black head. The pair were feeding, diving beneath the surface and returning to the top. After about fifteen minutes, the male disappeared. This seemed to disturb the female. She stopped feeding and paddled in small circles as though searching for the male. He never did show up and we wonder if he met some misadventure beneath the surface of the water. We took the ferry to Bolivar and just before leaving the ferry slip, we saw seven Canvasbacks on the water. Perhaps half way across, we saw a pair of Gannets in flight. On the East end of Galveston Island, on the flats by the jetty, we saw many terns, both Royal and Forster's as well as two Great Blue Herons. We thought it was a very rewarding day. Iris and Jim O'Ne'iii I had a good look at two Anhingas flying low over Winter's Creek at Hwy. 150 in San Jacinto County, at 10:30 A.M., April 2nd. The Anhinga is a rare species in that area, and this was a real surprise to me. Hope you enjoyed the migrants grounded by our recent "cold front1'. Joe Heiser ...I also want to point out that the Great Horned Owl was found by Ben (Feltner) on the 26th. It was and still is nesting in a large pixie which is in a grove between Ahrens Street and the Old Galveston Road...... Elric N. McHenry THE ESKIMO CURLEW SEARCH Pat Ellis Early in March the excitement bjegan as we anticipated the arrival of the Eskimo Curlew(s) and plans to search Galveston Island were discussed. The week-end of the 23rd found Jerry and Nancy Strickling on duty bright and early and eager as they scoped the horizons of many fields familiar to the Curlew(s) and its followers. This search was fruitless but not
