Transcript Volume XXIII, No. 10 February, 1975 PUBLISHED BY THE ORNITHOLOGY GROUP. OUTDOOR NATURE CLUB. HOUSTON. TEXAS TOPOGRAPHY OF A BIRD Last month Dan Hardy gave some hints on details to be submitted to the Clearing House, substantiating birds seen. To be able to correctly name the parts of a bird helps immeasurably in making one's notes clear and understandable. "The use of correct terminology will also aid you in making comparisons and in checking variations In color and pattern of local birds. Knowing the terminology helps focus your attention on specific parts of a bird as you observe it. Sometimes such details as an incomplete eye-ring or the color of the undertail coverts will clinch an identification" Birds-of North America. This month we have a "refresher" sketch, giving the common nomenclature of the topography of a bird. Two books have been used in making up the sketch and names: Audubon Land Bird Guide, by Pough, and Birds of North America, by Robbins, et.al. crown eye-ring .' jjjp. forehead '. .' ear patch upper mandible lower mandible lores •'• chin whisker • • throat 11306 ...side neck .back shoulder „ under ***Kf tail 'w>_ coverts UNDERWING axillars . •'' T3h>. underwing coverts UPPERWING primaries secondaries tail fouter tail feathers Bend of, wing j^^^N^'^capulars M'MMa ;<¥///// a //// AmicW >,.--- •'. ^U,U,u.V/..- primaries secondaries BIRD STUDY COURSE BEING OFFERED The OG and the University of Houston are co-sponsoring a new study course By John Tveten, titled: "Bird Study and Identification". It starts March 6, continuing for 8 consecutive Thursday nights, is being held at the Houston Museum of Natural Science 7:30 - 9:30 PM; cost is $30.00, (senior citizens may attend at no cost). John says this is primarily a course to enable people to identify birds in the field, quickly and easily. "How to separate bird families, problems of seasonal plumage change Identification by bird song, summarization of common problems of field identification" are some of the things that will be covered. There will be probably two field trips, also.
