Transcript Volume XX, No. October, 1971 PUBLISHED BY THE ORNITHOLOG. GROUP, OUTDOOR MATURE CIUB, HOUSTON, TEXAS OG FIELD TRIP TO GALVESTON AND BOLIVAR by Margaret Jones Sunday, April 26, 36 birders met at the east end of the Galveston seawall to be led by Steve Williams, The weather was much too hot and sunny, with high clouds, for any hoped- for migratory wave (such as occurred last year at this timeJ, but the day's total was still a fairly respectable 102 species. Maybe we eould say we had a mini-wave of hawks at Bolivar, near the ferry landing, where almost everyone saw Coopers, Ked-shouldered and broadwinged Hawks, and Steve made a great pitch for his October OG program on hawks by spotting a Peregrine Falcon, Regretfully, some of us missed that one. me had an unexpected plus when Bobolinks were seen in a field north of the highway (next to a small cemetery) between Bolivar and Rollover Pass. Bte^r believes this to be the first fall sighting of record for the Upper Texas Coast. Bit the highlight and nigh spot of the day was the rfuff, found in the Kecom oil field just west of high Island, John Tveten, who had been stalking him for several hours, had, about 30 minutes before we got there, flushed him and obligingly had him pinpointed for us, and everyone had a good, satisfying look. Some ended the trip on that, others went on to High island, but tho weather had been too good, and birds didn't seem to be there. On the way home June Rushing stopped by Anahuac Refuge, and her dividend for doing so was a Yellow-headed Blackbird. LETTER FROM FftANK KOKESH Official word is expected momentarily from Washington on renaming Middle Bayou to ARMAND BAYOU, The renaming was initiated with the thought that the bayou so named would be a fitting memorial to the late Armand Yramategui, who recognized the value of preserving the bayou arsa in a truly natural state. The fight to save the surrounding land is intensifying as the developer has revealed plans to start selling lots on the bayou in November at .125-30,000/half acre to Houston's millionaires. These lots will be mostly in the floodway when the permanent flood insurance plan is set and will be under water when a 50 or 100 year flood occurs. The many humble Oil & Refining Uompar.j people in local conservation-minded groups may be in a position to help persuade their employer that he should cooperate in ultimately deeding the land at a fair price for a nati""tl area along both banks to preserve the ecolo- gic unit and to give a permanent meaning to the bayou name change in Armand*s memory. GENEROUS OFFER BY JC >E». JR. A very generous and valuable gift has been offered to the OG by Joe, K. Heiser, Jr. His letter printed below, to cur chairman, Miss Sarah Gordon, is self-explanatory. The offer was discussed at the CG meeting, and it was decided that a committee shall be appointed to contact ;r. heiser to discuss with him the possible uses and disposition of his collection. Its %alue to the 0G and to others is inestimable. The letter follows: Dear Kiss Gordons In 192.1, the Outdoor Nature Club made its first Christmas bird count and sent its first activities report to headquarters of the, then, National Association of Audubon Societies, Thus, ours is now the oldest active organization of its kind in Texas, and one of the oldest in the United States.
