Meeting at Ft. Worth & Field Trip Ornithology Group Meeting 0.0. Field Trip - Prairie Chicken Area This issue contains the 18th Houston Christmas Count results, but before we five this data we want to discuss other items of importance and planned activities for February, as well as our 0. G. field trip scheduled March 7th. In addition to the information about the Christmas Count which is given in this SPOONBILL, further data is given in the January-February Supplement of this issue of the SPOONBILL. We had a very successful Christmas Bird Count and the two individuals who orginized and made it so were Frank Watson and Darris Massingill. Darris spent hours preparing and arranging parties and making the many phone calls required; Frank did a wonderful job of organization. Thanks to both for a monumental task well done. 0. g. PROGRAM & MEETING, FEBRUARY 2Uth. We have been especially fortunate in obtaining for this program Mr. George B. Williams, Professor of English at Rice Institute and one of the foremost authorities in the nation on bird migrations. He has contributed many articles for ornithological journals such as The Auk, and Wilson's Bulletin, and he is very familiar with bird life in the Houston area. Mr. Williams will discuss the migrating habits of birds. Visitors are invited w MHEETNty TO BE HELD AT - MUSEUflPOF IRTURAL' HISTORY. TIME: 8:00 PM 0. G. FIELD TRIP - FEBRUARY lUth This will be the Sandhill Crane trip which will cover the Eagle Lake-Colombus .area. It is the monthly Nature Club field ttip -- for further information see Nature Club Notes. 0. G. FIELD TRIP - MARCH 7th. mm-mmmmi m ■ i ■ '■ ■ ■ i i i ■ Because this field trip will take place early in March we are giving details in this issue. The trip planned for March 7th is a most important and interesting one as it will be a visit to the booming grounds of the Atwatcr Prairie Chicken. This is the best time of the year to observe and hear the Prairie Chick- on .cocks put on their full booming courtship display. We are very fortunate to be able to observe them so close to Houston. Only about 8000 of these atwater Prairie Chickens now survive and these 8000 are found only in Coastal Texas. Since they seem to be on their way to extinction (unless strong conservation measures are taken) the present generation may be the last to see this amazing spectacle in Coastal Texas. MEETMG PLrCEi Sanders Drive Inn, at the intersection of the La Porte Road and the San Jacinto Monument Road. frlME: We must assemble at 5:00 AM as the booming lasts only about a half-hour, beginning #ust before dawn. TEXAS ORNITHOLOGICAL SOCIETY - ANNUAL MEETING, FT. WORTH, TE3US FEB. 20 & 2V All members are urged to attend this meeting and field trip. Visitors are cordially invited. It will be worthwhile to see the progress which has been made in one short year by the T.O.S. in organizing and bringing together nature lovers and bird enthusiasts throughout the State into a common effort to promote bird study and conservation. Election of 19£Li officers, plans for 195U, and means for carrying out the Society's objectives will be taken up and acted upon at this meeting. The field trip will be interesting and plenty of social activity is planned to make this annual meeting a valuable one to attend.
