Transcript Volume 45, No. 1 January 1996 The Spoonbill Published by The Ornithology Group, Outdoor Nature Club, Houston Membership Meeting Warblers! A Program on Warbler Identification. Jon Dunn Date: February 5,1996 Location: St. Philip's Methodist Church, 5501 Beechnut at Renwick Time: 7:00 p.m. Pre-meeting I_earning Corner at 6:30 p.m. Join us before the meeting to hear j Jim Morgan discussing one of his favorite subjects: sparrows! Jon Dunn's excellent presentation on j flycatchers to the OG several years ago j made flycatcher identification seem like \ an attainable goal. This month Jon will speak on warbler identification. Jon is recognized as one of America's top field identification experts j and tour leaders. He is a WINGS, Inc. | director living in Beaver Creek, Ohio. He has extensive knowledge of the identification and distribution of North American birds and was principal consultant to the National Geographic Society's Field Guide to the Birds of North America. Jon is working with others on a book on the identification of North American wood warblers. Don't miss this meeting! Jon asks that you bring your binoculars for better views of details on his slides. Cnairinaii's Message BY BOB LUCKNER I recendy had an opportunity to hear a discussion on birding ethics. It made me think and reflect. Birding ethics is an area we should periodically revisit, assessing our own behavior and identifying areas where we could make improvements. Here are four areas to reflect upon: 1. Birders should always act in ways that do not endanger the welfare of birds or other wildlife. Consider how many times you've heard or played a recording of a screech owl call. Were the volume and duration more consistent with a ten-foot tall owl that could run a marathon? Did anyone stop to think what any screech owl in the area thought about this apparent invader of its territory? Would pishing be a better option? 2. Birders should always act in ways that do not harm the environment. Are you careful where you walk in the field, staying on trails whenever possible? Do you carpool on field trips? Do you participate in work days or restoration projects to give something back for the pleasures you get from time in the field? 3. Birders should always respect the rights of others. Is there ever an excuse for trespassing in the quest of your next lifer? Remember that it would reflect not only on you but potentially the entire birding community and their access to good birding areas or that rare vagrant. 4. Birders in groups should assume special responsibilities. Group field trips require you to carefully manage your behavior. Do you save your socializing for breaks? Do you stay with the group, lag behind or appear to get lost? Do you use group trips to improve your birding skills by actively participating in the identification of birds found by the group? or do you let the leader do the identification as if you were on some tour? Do you respect the authority of the trip leader that they have earned by agreeing to take on this responsibility? Do you thank the leader for their efforts even if the birds don't make an appearance (birds do have wings!)? This is certainly not meant to criticize anyone nor is it related to any actual recent instance. Please treat it as an opportunity to reflect and grow. Good birding!
