NEWS BRIEFS .MINUTES OF OG MEETING, MARCH 1, 1993: Chairman Bob Honig opened by announcing he was scheduled to present the Purple Martin house for Hermann Park to Mayor Bob Lanier on March 2. [The proclamation presented by Mayor Lanier k reprinted in thk ksue.Ed.] Bob ako noted more volunteers are needed for the ONC's 70th Anniversary celebration at the Houston Arboretum on April 4. Steven Bennett k video taping the OG programs and tapes are available in the OG library for checkout. Bird sightings noted by members were Lesser Goldfinch, Buff- bellied Hummingbird and a Black Rail gripped in a Kestrel's talons. Gail Luckner, Program Chair, introduced our much- anticipated speaker, Kenn Kaufman. Kenn, an associate editor of "American Birds," author of Advanced Birr)jqg and a master punster, presented hk program, "Owl in a Day's Work." Kenn and friend, Rick Bowers, spent a very full day in southeastern Arizona in search of owk. They located 11 of the 13species found in Arizona and established a new all- time high record for a one-day count. They started at Catalina State Park, travelled south to Tucson and moved east and south. Kenn discussed the owl's symbolism in myth and legends, their predatory nature and their physiology. He demonstrated owl calk with each slide. Especially endearing was the Elf Owl returning to its Saguaro cactus nest with a cricket in its bill. Kenn's presentation was full of humor and information. For those of us who made it through the rain and floods, it was a real hoot! Christine Bourgeois, Secretary • • • • • ™MATAGORDA ISLAND FERRY READY TO OPERATE.

BIRDS FIND GREENERY ON GREAT LAKES FREIGHTER. Because birds flying across the considerable expanse of the Great Lakes need places for temporary stops, Second Mate J.P. Perkins of the Sewell Aviary decided to provide them with a floating "forest." Hk kind provkion has been a great success. More than 200 species have used "Perkins National Forest," which in summer consists of two willow trees planted in buckets and evergreens in spring and fall on the deck of the iron ore carrier. The birds prefer alighting in thk bit of greenery to other parts of the ship, and make stops to rest in the potted trees. Perkins derived a great deal of pleasure from hk hobby. He uses a movie camera to take pictures of the visiting birds, and has identified 18 flyways used by migrating birds on the Great Lakes. However, the birds are not the only ones to benefit, for hk shipboard bird sanctuary k popular with birds and people alike. Many other sailors have become interested in birds from associating with Perkins and from watching hk feathered visitors. [Reprinted from the Christian Science Monitor]
