We are having such great turn-outs for our field trips in the past year or so, that sometimes the line of cars Is so long the-back. end doesn't know what the front end is seeing, and those In the middle are really lost.' There are various schemes being considered to make the trips more enjoyable for everyone, in cars or on foot, there will be more about this in the future. - For right now, one thing we could all do is share rides so that the number of cars can be reduced, (Saves gasoline, too.') £_j»« WHAT A DAY FOR A FIELD TRIP?.'.'■-- by Sarah Gordon :ar$* .Ax January 25th dawned as perfect and rare as that day In June that was written about so beautifully by Mr. Shakespeare. Lovely blue skies, sunshine, comfortable temperature and no wind made for a grand day. - #JsSs_3 A large assemblage gathered to meet our leader, Dan Hardy, who did a masterful job in handling so many cars and making sure that everyone got to see most of the 78 species found that morning. Our first stop was on Clay Road at the Sewage Treatment Plant and ane could truly say "You're in Robin Country". All the trees in sight with the exception of the pine trees were "robin trees". I would not .know" how to estimate such a huge flock but I would guess In the thousands. At this location we also saw Mourning -round and Inca doves. This was a half day trip and for a number of the group the most exciting birds were the Bald Eagles sighted. One eagle was on the ground' in a field where geese were feeding and another sat high in a tree - majestic and impressive with his beautiful white head almost glowing, I wish more Americans could see this emblem of our nation in person! ,-': <'i:'i:H;i. Some few were fortunate enough to see the prairie chickens and though our caravan retraced our route on Clay Road we could not find them again. However, it's good to know that they are still in those particular fields. As always, the geese in huge numbers, with their constant conversations, are exciting - Canada, White-fronted, Snow, Blue and Ross' were all seen by someone in the group. Warren Lake was not covered with waterfowl this day as it usually is, but Gadwalls, Pintails, Green-winged Teal, Shovelers and Ruddy ducks were on the lake. The hawks were out In numbers, and among those sighted were the Coopers and Rough-legged. Some who continued to bird after the trip broke up after lunch,- saw a Ferruginous hawk In the area. The usual wood birds were observed and the fields produced a variety of sparrows, such as Song, Lincoln, Fox, White-throated and White-crowned, Harris', Field, Lark, Vesper and Savannah. Those who planned for lunch ate at a delightful little park called Hew Kentucky Park, where,a number of birds were also lunching, such as a pair of Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers. ;f*f« ?. w-r_jg<»urifj:y:' • Ihere were several guests among the 45 birders who made this field trip, and we invite them to become memBers of the group 'and'to participate In our activities. ;-lHAT A DAY FOR A FIELD TRIPU? - By Wesley Cureton -fter a night of rain, and more forecast, a surprising 37 people showed up Saturday, FeBruary 1, for the OG field trip at Sheldon Reservoir. Paul and Margaret Jones, who had scouted the area the day Before predicted low numBers of Birds, and a high amount of mud, and, for the most part, they were right. Particularly disappointing was the
