The Apache Corporation Tree Program of Houston Texas has donated a grant of 100 trees in 5 gallon pots. The trees are to be planted by the Coastal Prairie Chapter in Seabourne Creek Nature Park in Rosenberg, Texas in January 2020.
On an overcast morning in the 60’s, Nov. 6, 2019, a group of 25 birders took a walk around Seabourne Creek Nature Park in Rosenberg, TX. The last of the group made the first sighting of a Least Grebe, as it swam near a larger American Coot. Species sighted totaled 46 and also included a Vermillion Flycatcher, Eastern Phoebe, American Kestrel, and Red-Shouldered Hawk. The total species sighted at Seabourne is now 202.
On Wednesday, May 1, 2019, 16 birders identified 40 species of birds on a morning walk. Sightings included: Lesser Scaup, Spotted Sandpiper, Little Blue Heron, Yellow-Crowned Night Heron, Roseate Spoonbill, Crested Caracara, and two Magnolia Warblers. See eBird link for complete list, along with example photos and calls. Bird walks will resume in the Fall on the first Wednesday of the month.
