Transcript Page 5 lack of ducks. Paul said the reservoir manager attributed the lack to the high muddy water, which seemed to cut down on the food supply. The OG members split into two groups, and those who went to the headquarters area had better luck. They saw an American bittern, Sora, Anhinga, and an injured White Pelican, among others. Both groups saw several Sparrow species, and somebody reported a Catbird. The most common species were Snow Geese, Robins, and Myrtle Warblers. From Sheldpn Reservoir the group went to Eisenhower Park for a try at the woodland birds, but again they evaded us. Several Red-shouldered Hawks were seen and heard calling. The park also served as our lunch stop and tallying station. In spite of the mud underfoot and mistiness overhead most of the morning, a surprising 63 species were seen. All seemed to enjoy seeing the very early signs of spring and being in the company of other nature lovers. A hearty thanks goes to Paul Jones for.his leadership, and Marilyn Crane for helping out.

Fred Webster Is taking reservations for the spring trip to Rancho del Cielo, June 1 to June 7, 1975. This is a biological station maintained by Texas Southmost College of Erownsville, and offers a rare opportunity to explore this wilderness area. Experienced naturalists lead walks about the station and in the surrounding oak-sweet gum cloud forest. Hikers may take trails which lead downslope toward the tropical mountainside forest or above to the humid oak-pine zone. At least 35 species of non-U.S. bird species nest in the cloud forest, many others at other elevations. For further details write: Fred S. Webster, Jr., 4926 Strass Drive, Austin, Texas 78731. ART EXHIBIT OF INTEREST Bill Mealy has announced an exhibition of the bird and wildlife art of John O'Neill at the Museum of Natural Science. The opening will be held March 4, from 7:00 to . . 10:00 p.m., and will run through March 30. UG THICKET NATURE PILGRIMAGE. r_iis week-end field trip in 25 different subjects will be held April 4th, 5th, 6th. rhere will be 50 top leaders in these subjects from all over the state, Including irtists such as John O'Neill, who will give demonstrations of their wildlife painting, kmtact Bill Mealy, 664-7862, for further information on field subjects, accommoda- :ions, etc, CLEARING HOUSE RECORD BOUNDARIES -t might bear repeating for some of our new readers that the Clearing House is a record of birds seen In the area covered by "A Birder's Checklist of the Upper Texas Coast". This area is made up of six counties: Brazoria, Chambers, Fort Bend, Galveston, Harris, and our newest county, Jefferson. It would seem, from reading the C-H, that Bolivar and West Harris County have been getting the great majority of the birding for several months, as will Galveston and High Island this spring. Our Jefferson County readers may add some places to these In the months to come.
