There are two lakes in the territory where many water birds may be seen - such as American and Snowy Egrets, Little Blue Herons, Yellow-crowned {fight Herons, Gallinules and cootsj White ibis and Wood Ibis h^ve also been seen in this vicinity. Fulvous Tree Ducks are sometimes found feeding in rice fields in tho area and a number of woodland birds will also be seen, including Painted and Indigo Buntings, Summer Tanagers, Bluebirds, and possibly the Prothonot,ary Warbler. It sounds like an interesting and enjoyable trip - everyone should bring sandwiches, etc. for a late afternoon picnic lunch.

It seems it will be probable that about 200 species of birds were seen. It will not be as good as previous years when in 1953, 221 species were noted, and in 1954, 230 species were seen. Mrs. v/ilkin presented two species for identification. One was a Kentucky warbler and the other too immature to identify. Mr. Joe Heiser, Jr. announced that on May 28 and 29 a census will be made of birds nesting in the Little Thicket Sanctuary. Two new members, Mr. and Mrs. Henry V.
