Transcript NEWS BRIEFS BRAZORIA NATIONAL WILDLIFE REFUGE OPEN HOUSE HOURS through May 1994 are: The first full weekend each month, Saturday and Sunday, 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Also, the third Saturday of each month, Brazoria k open to the public 7:00 a.m. to Noon (through April only). These early hours allow better viewing of the huge flocks of Snow Geese before they leave for the rice fields, but some geese are around all day, however.) The refuge may be open at other times during the week. Call 409/849-7771 for updates. Al Clarke, Brazosport Birders, 409/297- 2289. .......THE OG NEEDS VOLUNTEER TO HELP WITH SPOONBILL MAILING: Patrick Baum, who has prepared The Spoonbill for mailing for four years, k retiring in May 1994. He has generously volunteered to train a new volunteer to share these duties with Mrs. Gregg Mueller. Preparing The Spoonbill for mailing requires that the mailer pick up the issue from the printer on the near southwest side of downtown (usually on a Wednesday afternoon), affix labels to approximately 400 copies, bundle according to zipcode and deliver to the downtown post office the next morning (usually a Thursday). For more information about time involved or what special arrangements can be made, please call Gregg (497-8566) or Patrick (523-0190) or Judy Boyce (668- 5359). ___SPRING BOAT TRIPS TO CHANDELEUR ISLANDS: John Chessman, formerly with the Nature Conservancy, will soon be operating two boats into the Chandeleur Island and the barrier islands off the Louisiana coast for nature excursions. They will be based at d'Iberville and will tailor trips to suit the fancy of birders who wish to explore thk region or others around the northern Gulf of Mexico. The boats with galley and berths can carry 4-6 people. Projection of video or 35 mm slides will be available on board. These shallow draft boats allow close inshore approaches for birding and landing ashore. Costs will vary according to the trip, but will range from $75-100 per person per day. An exploration of the islands during spring migration should be of great interest. The first excursion will be about March 25th, lasting 5-6 days. Later trips can be a short as three days from d'Iberville. Call Arch Dillard for more information at 996-0107. .......REQUEST FOR MOUNTAIN PLOVER SIGHTINGS: Biologkts with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department are seeking information concerning Mountain Plover (Charadrius montanus) sightings throughout the state. Although only a very few Mountain Plovers still nest in west Texas, flocks are still migrating through and perhaps wintering in Texas. Researchers in Colorado have been banding and conducting research on breeding grounds in northeastern Colorado and wintering areas in the San Joaquin Valley of California during the last few years. Some of the banded birds were seen in both California and Colorado, but most banded individuals were not. Data on banded birds in Texas would be valuable toward understanding movement patterns of thk species. Mountain Plovers are most often observed on recently plowed grain fields. When recording information, please try to note date and time, exact location, size of flock, color of bands if present and habitat type. Peggy Horner, Endangered Species Biologist, TPWD, 1-800-792-1112. VOLUNTEER BIRDERS NEEDED! The OG has a chance to broaden our efforts to introduce area youth to birds and birding. The San Jacinto Girl Scout Council has asked whether OG members would be willing to lead short (45 min.- one hour) Saturday morning bird walks thk spring for giris camped at four area scout camps. Dates and times can be arranged to fit the OG volunteers' schedules. Volunteers could expect to lead two 45-minute walks in a morning with different gjrk in each group. Girl Scouts range from seven to 17 years of age, but each group would consist of a troop of gjrk nearly the same age. Because these girk are likely to be on their first bird walk, volunteers do not have to be "expert" birders. Familiarity with common woodland birds and enthusiasm for birds and young girk should get you through the morning and open up a new world for some young eyes. All of the camps have good woodland traik, and most have small lakes and/or streams. All camps are located within one hour driving time of Houston. If thk opportunity to encourage an interest in birds and the need for their conservation sounds worthwhile to you, call David Veselka at 692-1384. —MINUTES OF JANUARY 3,1994 OG MEETING: For the Learning Corner, John Erickson gave a talk on reading birds' attitudes from their feather posture and predicting their movements. * Chairman David Bradford opened the meeting at 7:00 pm. He announced that Patrick Baum will be resigning hk position after the May issue of The Spoonbill, and consequently we will be needing a new person to help with mailings on a rotating bask. Mailings involve affixing mailing labels, sorting and taking the newsletters to the post office. If you are interested, please contact Judy Boyce, 668-5359. * Jim Day will no longer be able to be our publicist as he has moved to Washington, D.C., so that position k open as well.* The 1994 Budget, as published in December, was approved unanimously. P.D. Hulce requested an amendment to the budget: that $400 be added to cover the cost of boat rentak for the 1994 Houston Christmas Bird Count. Thk amendment will be voted
