Transcript Volume XVIII, No. 6 October, 1969 £ "The melancholy days are come, the saddest of the year, Of wailing winds, and naked woods, I and meadows brown and sere." These words written by William Cullen Bryant could not have been meant for birders. What days could be melancholy when; there are so many treasures of the bird world to be found in the same naked woods and meadows brown and sere? PUBLISHED BY THE ORNITHOLOGY GROUP. OUTDOOR HATURE CLUB, HOUSTON, TEXAS COVE FIELD TRIP, SEPTEMBER 13 by Dan Hardy Texas ornithology has few institutions; one is Arlie K, McKay. Seventeen carloads of people followed this remarkable man September 13 around the wilds of Cove. Meeting between Old and Trinity Rivers we trekked light woods and marshlands to Mayes Lake and viewed many ducks, eleven Avocet, and a group of Pectoral Sandpipers stupidly blocking our path: Gnatcatehers were abundant. Mr. Mckay then showed us the saltwater barrier (with accessible road atop) east of Trinity River while hordes of Wood Ibis waded beside Interstate 10. In a mixed pine- oak area on the way to Lake Charlotte Broad-winged Hawks (7), a Fish Crow (seen and heard by several), bluebirds, and Pine Warblers slowed progress. The lake, new to many of us, and majestically lined with cypress, rewarded us with an Osprey pinwheeling and diving across the water. A leisurely lunch followed, complete with praying mantis. The early afternoon was spent south of Cove on Mr. Mckay's old property where copperheads, butterflies, and birds vied for our attention. Of 79 species totaled, prominent were Red-tailed Hawk, Marsh Hawk, Belted Kingfisher, Eastern Pftoebe, Bank Swallows, and Dickcissel (and no House Sparrows). Thirty nine 'day trippers'; Margaret Anderson, Jerry Baker, James Barnes, Tommy Barnes, Johnny Fay Barnette, Tess Barry, Julia and Ewell Bradley, Avis and Harry Brister, Sue Buck, Nettie Busby, Marilyn Crane, Jane Dodge, Melba Drake, Pane and Tassie Edwards, Gladys Galbreath, Eva Gilman, Clayton Gilman, Sarah Gordon, Johanna Grabbq, Dirk Hagemeyer, Dan Hardy, Dorothy and David Lefkovits, Arlie K, McKay (leader), Wallace Mebane, Norma Oates, Nell Ray.

THE GOLDEN-CHEEKED WARBLER NEEDS YOUR HELP! The information below was taken from information furnished us by Hank and Eileen Robison of Houston, members of the Sierra Club, The Golden_Cheeked Warbler breeds only in climax cedar, or more correctly, juniper, and they breed no place other than the Edwards Plateau of Texas. At one time there were more than 40 counties that were hospitable to this warbleri this has shrunk to less than 30 counties, leaving the habitat scattered and scarce. Meridian State Park lies northwest of Waco and contains 463 acres, much of it covered with the kind of juniper this warbler must have. The town of Meridian, population of around a thousand, is abbut three miles from this park, and a group of citizens has decided a golf course would be nice. Though there is plenty of privately owned property that would be more suitable for a golf course, this
