Transcript 2L VOLUME XIII No. 7 November, 1964 * * ******* A bird is such a tiny thing, Even in bushes but half grown; A bird is such a tiny thing, To face the big world all alone! But somehow as I hear him sing, In wild, free woodland glades and such, But somehow while I see him sing, I cannot believe he worries much! Frances Sharpe George PUBLISHED BY THE ORNITHOLOGY GROUP, HOUSTON OUTDOOR NATURE CLUB.HOUSTON,TEXAS COMING EVENTS December 3 (Thursday).

We know for certain there is'to be a count for tht Houston area on January 2, 1965. The Freeport Count is scheduled for December 27th and Jerry Strickling will be pleased to add your name to the list of participants so call him and tell him you want to go. The Galveston Count plans are still pending. This is always a good area and deserves to be counted again, so let Henry and Louise Hoffman know if you would like knock yourself out just one more day - alT"*for the cause.

One of these is the Rancho Hotel El Atascadero at San Miguel de Allende, a pleasant spot on the edge of the plateau above the town and on the side of a small valley abounding in birds. Room and meals, both very good, are only 140 or 150 pesos daily for two people, which works out to maybe $6.00 apiece and is cheaper than staying at home. You can get there by train or by bus. The Atascadero is well run but not high pressured or fancied up. The birds nearby, so near that you can use any spare quarter-hour for bird watching, are all U.S. types, at least in August, some Western and some Eastern.
