Transcript r—-~) Published by the Ornithology Group, Outdoor Nature Club Houston, Texas, Ubby Price, Editor; Ellen Red, Asst. Editor "c?- VOLUME XXXVIII, No. 10 October, 1989 Friday - Sunday, Nov. 3-5: Ornithology Group field trip. There will be one OG field trip in November, and it will be a weekend trip to Welder Wildlife Refuge and other Central Coast spots. We will arrive at Welder at 8:00 Friday if spending the night camping in the Rotunda on the refuge. After an early breakfast we will tour the refuge with Gene Blacklock as leader. Those arriving from Houston or spots off the refuge on Saturday morning should be at the refuge gate by 7:30 a.m. to join the tour group. Depending on the birding situation we may also visit surrounding areas with Gene. The tour will conclude in midafternoon on Saturday, and we must pack up and be off the refuge by 4:30 p.m. Saturday night and Sunday activities will be individual choice. Camping facilities are available at Lake Corpus Christi and on Mustang Island. There are also numerous motels in the area. For those seeking birds of tropical affinities the Lake Corpus Christi area below the dam offers opportunities, while there is good shorebirding at Hans Suter Park and elsewhere in the Corpus Christi area. Gene has promised to brief the group on the best spots ">nd directions to reach them. We can expect to see such birds as Long-billed Thrashers and Pyrrhuloxia and rarities are possible. Reservations are a must, and if we don't sign up at least 15 people the trip must be canceled. Call John Buckman at (713) 359-4685 to reserve a spot and for more information. Friday, Nov. 3: Deadline for Clearing House reports and for Spoonbill material. Tuesday, Nov. 7: Ornithology Group meeting at 7:30 p.m. at Bayland Park, off Bissonnet just west of Hillcroft. The program will be on birds of Papua, New Guinea, presented by Larry Shelton of the Houston Zoo. NOVICE TIME will be at 7:00 p.m. Bring field guides to participate. Thursday, Nov. 9: Outdoor Nature Club meeting at the Houston Arboretum at 7:30 p.m. The program, "Earth Observations From Space," will be presented by Dr. Mary Cleave, Astronaut. Monday, Nov. 13: Steering Committee meeting. Any member wishing to attend is welcome. The time is 7:30 p.m., the place as yet undecided. Call Richard Uzar at 527-0454 to find out, or ask at the Nov. 7 meeting. VOTE AGAINST CHANNEL DREDGING NOV. 7 OG OUTING SEPT. 9 TO BRAZORIA NWR by Judy Boyce Is it possible to become blase about Wood Storks after seeing over 160 mixed with hundreds of spoonbills, egrets, herons and White Ibis, all rising up and flying low over the coastal prairie and marshes of Brazoria National Wildlife Refuge? One observer moaned over and over, "I should have brought my video camera." Life is full of regrets and 'should haves,' and if you missed the OG outing on September 9, you shouldn't have! Over 30 OG members showed up and they were not disappointed. A bright hot day of deep blue skies, brilliant cumulus and isolated dark rain showers skipping around the horizon was the backdrop for a great birding day: 71 species including Swallow- tailed Kite (!), 5 least bittern, Horned Lark, Wilson's Phalarope, Swainson's Hawk, Stilt and Pectoral Sandpipers and one white Little Blue Heron. A special "Thank You" goes to Tom Taroni and Warren Preuss of Lake Jackson, who are now official volunteers at Brazoria NWR, uniforms and all. They announced that the refuge is open to the public the first FULL weekend of each month; if the first of the month is on Sunday, the refuge is open the FOLLOWING weekend. A good time was had by all. Thank you birds.
