Transcript Volume 5 No. 11 March 1957 ******************** ******** BURROWING OWL One of nature's drollest creatures, the Burrowing Owl spends each day In pantomining "How do you do?" to family, friends, and passers-by, and in eating his weight in things you wouldn't eat your weight in, not even his. More at home under the range than on it, he knows it's cheaper to board than to build - so he redecorates an old gopher hole. He will probably twist his head off if you walk around him enough times. Charles Harper - Nov. 1956 Ford Times ************** ************** Published by the Ornithology Group, Outdoor Nature Club, Houston, Texas FORTHCOMING ACTIVITIES Marsh 30 Saturday field trip to Galveston Island - Meet at Busch Stadium at 6:30 a.m. We expect to see early spring migrants along the Coast - Leader Carl Aiken. April 6-7 Texas Ornithological Society Annual Meeting in Austin, Texas (Terrace Motel) April 28 - O.G.Spring Roundup - Details will be announced in April SPOONBILL Special Notices Next Meeting *S'"-*-i Our next meeting will be held at the River Oaks Garden Center, 8503 Westheimer on Thursday, April 11th at 8:00 p.m. This is the fifth anniversary of the Ornithology Group which was organized in 1958 as a bird study group of the Outdoor Nature Club. After a short business meeting at whieh time an election of officers for the coming year will be held, our guests, the Botany and Photography Groups, will be entertained with a program of colored slides, after whieh birthday cake will be served! This is "get-acquainted" time and we would like our new members to attend as well as all "old regulars". J. F. Murray, Chairman. Spring Migration Count Carl Aiken, 3767 Georgetown, Houston 5, Texas, will serve as recorder for spring migrants going through this portion of the Gulf Coast area. He needs eheck-lists from all birders - beginning immediately and continuing through April and May. The cheek-lists should separate migrants by areas and dates - for instance, birds observed in the Houston vicinity should be on a separate list frem those seen on the same day in the Battlegrounds area; or the Kemah and the Bay-shore area; and a separate list should cover Galveston Island, etc. etc. It is also important to show an estimate of the number of each species recorded ~ it is helpful to know whether just one individual was seen or whether 10, or 100, or 1000, or more were observed. Let's all take the extra time to send these lists to Carl sows can have an accurate picture of the numbers and kinds of migrants passing through this area. Nominating Committee This committee requests that all members who have suggestions as to the selection of Ornithology Group officers for the 1957-1958 season, eontaet one of the following: John Frels Darris Massingill James Murray - Norma Oates Mrs .B.H.Wilkin - UN 2-2524 WA 1-4441 UN 1-8837 MA 3-6140 ME 5-6679 Indigo Buntings Mr. Aaron M.
