Weekday Field Trip Notes December 13,1995: Sixteen birders joined Winnie Burkett at Brazoria NWR for a beautiful late fall birding trip. We enjoyed large flights of geese, the constant clacking of Sandhill Cranes and near-constant displays by seven species of raptors. A total of 59 species were observed in just four hours. Highlights included good looks at soaring Ferruginous Hawks and Merlins in flight January 10, 1996: Thirty-one birders joined Winnie Burkett for a ' morning in the field exploring part of the flood containment area behind Barker Dam on the far western edge of Houston. We tallied 40 species of birds in a little over three hours including seven species of sparrows and a close look at a flock of eight Rusty Blackbirds feeding on the ground and perched in the low branches of a nearby tree. Those of us with prior commitments left at noon envying those who could stay to bird so fine a spot within the city. Tom Lewis, 497-2550. Golf Course Update LAKE JACKSON - The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) has decided to take its fight against a proposed golf course to Washington. ...Lake Jackson officials have been fighting for four years to build a municipal golf course in a hardwood forest that contains federally protected wetlands that environmentalists want to save for migrating songbirds. ...The Army Corps of Engineers in Galveston recommended that a permit be issued for the golf course...but FWS have "elevated"...the permitting process for the golf course to high-level officials in Washington...U.S. Rep. Tom DeLay, R-Sugar Land, had attempted to stop the appeals process by inserting a clause in the Interior Department's appropriations bill that would bar the FWS from delaying the wetlands permit. That bill, however, is still pending and has been targeted by President Clinton for veto. From HOUSTON CHRONICLE, Steve Olafson, December 14,1995. Beginning Birding?
