The May Members Field Trip took our group to the north side of town. We hiked the trails at Peckinpaugh Preserve and the Dennis Johnston Park. Calling Great Crested Flycatchers and Pine Warblers made for a fun "audio tour" of both properties. Summer Tanager and Pileated Woodpeckers were a treat and the best encounter of the day were the Barn Swallows under the bridge on Riley Fuzzel Road.

Do you want to make the Bolivar Peninsula a better place for wildlife and nature tourism? We need your help! Houston Audubon and several public and non-profit partners hope to receive funding to implement a Bolivar Peninsula Nature Trail (BPNT)—a nature-based conservation, education and economic development initiative that connects 13 natural sites on the Bolivar Peninsula in Galveston County. Please visit the webpage linked below and send in your comments! http://houstonaudubon.org/conservation/bolivar-trail.html

This Saturday the Houston Audubon Field Trippers will be visiting the Spring Creek Greenway Nature Center and Peckinpaugh Preserve. Established in 2005, the 25-acre Peckinpaugh Preserve merges 10 acres generously donated by Mrs. Patricia Peckinpaugh Hubbard and 15 acres contributed by the Houston Audubon Society. We have a few spots left for the trip. We will meet at the nature center at 8AM and finish around noon. If you would like to join us please email Mary Anne Weber at maweber@houstonaudubon.org

BEAK OF THE WEEK Sandwich Tern (Thalasseus sandvicensis) Family: Laridae The Sandwich Tern is a medium-sized tern, larger than a Common or Forster's Tern but noticeably smaller than a Royal or Caspian tern. It has a white body with a pale gray back, black legs and elongated feathers on its head giving it a shaggy crest. In breeding plumage, it has a black cap, while in non-breeding plumage this cap is replaced by a pale white forehead. Sandwich Terns are best identified by their long, thin, black bill with a yellow tip, which many birders say looks as if it has been dipped in mustard. There are 3 subspecies of Sandwich Tern: one in North America, one in Eurasia, and one found in the Caribbean and on the Atlantic Coast of South America. While the North American and Eurasian subspecies have the same appearance, the third subspecies, often referred to as the Cayenne Tern, has a completely yellow bill. Sandwich Terns are resident all along the Gulf Coast, with their breeding range extending along the Atlantic Coast up to New Jersey. In Texas, Sandwich Terns nest colonially with Royal Terns, Laughing Gulls and Forster's Terns on both natural barrier islands and artificial dredge spoil islands. Bolivar Flats is a great place to look for these birds loafing in large groups with Royal Terns, but also keep your eyes peeled for them feeding, over the water, within 2 miles of the shore all along our coastline.

This Red-headed Woodpecker was just hanging out about 3 feet off the ground in the parking lot at Camp Allen in Navasota. Stayed for a couple of hours in the same location. Would catch bugs on the ground and go back to the tree. It was a real treat to watch and photograph.
