Transcript Page 8. Notes on June 17 "Big Day" - type Party Count - by Noel Pettingell 110 species, including Rook Dove, were recorded by Party "B" - one less than the all- time Upper Texas Coast record for a single day in June set by Steve Williams and Paul Corneil on June 18, I960. We had determined that "par" for our "course" in mid-June was 110 expected or essential species. Although we missed 13 of these we still managed to make par for the day by finding 13 "bonus" species (see lists below). Our route was as follows: Houston (5 A. M., CDT) - Sheldon and Lake Houston (5=20 to 9:00 A. M.) - Anahuac Refuge (10:15 to 11:00 A. M.) - High Island - Bolivar Peninsula - Galveston I. (3:30 to 7:30 P. M.) - Flamingo Isles Rd. to Jones Bay - Texas City Dike - Houston (9:30 P. M.). We left Anahuac with 71 species and arrived at Galveston with 101 but only found 7 new ones during 4 hours of intensive birding on the Isle. Our 110th species was a Ring-billed Gull seen at Texas City Just before nightfall (8:30). Our mileage by car was 322 plus 4| on foot and 3.2 via Bolivar Ferry. Essential (Expected) Species Missed White Pelican (didn't visit Battlegrounds) Frigatebird (2 at 13-mi. Rd. June 15) Yellow-crowned Nightheron Wood Stork (didn't visit Baytown Tunnel) Wood Duck Turkey Vulture (no wind in morning) Marsh Hawk (didn't take Rt. 146) King Rail (raining at Anahuae) Piping Plover Long-billed Dowiteher Long-billed Marsh Wren Kentucky Warbler Chat "Bonus" (Unexpected) Species Seen Eared Grebe Fulvous Tree Duek Ruddy Duck Oystercatcher Spotted Sandpiper Least Sandpiper Semipalmated Sandpiper Common Tern Ruby-throated Hummingbird Hairy Woodpecker Western Kingbird Brown Thrasher Swainson's Warbler (heard singing) MINUTES OF THE JUNE PICHIC MEETING OF THE OG GROUP JUNE 6. 1968 Thirty-one people attended the June picnic meeting in Memorial Park on June 6, I968. The meeting was called to order by our new Chairman, Wally Mebane. The minutes were read and approved. It was announced that on April 30 we had 138 members. Mrs. Pat Ridge, visitor, was introduced. Sarah Gordon gave the Treasurer's Report of a May 31 balance of $353-44. Marian Washburn, Program Chairman, announced that plans for the August meeting would be in the next Spoonbill. L. A. M. Barnette told of the field trip last weekend to the Harris County Rehabilitation Center. Forty-six species of birds were seen. A Flying Squirrel was a "goodie." Under Old Business the Myerland Garden Club meeting which has been discussed before will be in the morning and Dirk Hagemeyer will not be able to give the program. There was a discussion of Good Birding Trips Rational Wildlife. advertisements in Audubon Magazine and Under New Business, Wally Mebane announced that he had nest record cards and they were distributed. Marian Washburn announced that she had seen 3 pairs of Least Bittern in Galveston. Julia Bradley told the group that Carl Aiken had volunteered to send out left-over Spoonbills to interested people who called the Museum to ask about birding in Houston. Horma Oates suggested that this would help us to get new members. A slip could be attached to each copy telling how to join. Clayton Gilman suggested that a copy of the Outdoor Hature Club brochure could be put in too. At this point, it was suggested that discretion should be used in sending them out. L. A. M. Barnette said that not any person here has a lot of vicious prejudice but that some discretion should be used. Carl Aiken said that it was hard to tell over the telephone. There was heated discussion as to whether this was an appropriate concern. Louise Hoffman voiced the opinion that no one would drop dead if a negro should want to join. Dan Washburn moved that Carl be sent the Spoonbills to send out; the motion was seconded by Clayton Gilman and carried. There followed further discussion on the restriction of members in the OHC and its application to the Ornithology Group. Julia Bradley brought up the subject of "Bird World." Majorie Adams has requested help from the OG in getting it put back in the Houston paper.
