Transcript GET INVOLVED! LET EACH OF US DO HIS UT- KOST AS AN INDIVIDUAL AND AS MEMBERS OF GROUPS TO WORK EVEN HARDER FOR CONSERVATION AND IMPROVEMENT OF THE ENVIRONMENT, VOLUME XW, No. 1 May, 1971 PUBLISHED BY THS ORNITHOLOGY GROUP, OUTDOOR HATURE CLUB, HOUSTON. TEXAS YEARLY REPORT OF ORNITHOLOGY GROUP TO OUTDOOR NATURE CLUB Kay 1, 1970 threugh April 30, 1971 By President Sarah Gordon It is a pleasure to report te you the year's activities of the Ornithelegy Greup. It was an active year with superier cooperation and participation ef the membership, we held six meetings, including a pienie meeting , with attendance averaging 50 members and nine visitors. It is felt that the active increase in attendance as the year progressed was due to the excellent programs given in large part by members of the Ornithology Group. In August Dr. Pat Sullivan gave a program on an African safari, which included some award winnini? pictures; Dr. Jehn Tveten gave the October program on a trip to Raneho del Cielo in the rain forest of Mexico. Mr, and Mrs, David Lefkovits also centributed a mest interesting commentary on their raising of three little screech ewls. In December we were treated to a program on Sparrow Identification led by Dr, Steve Williams; our February program was a presentation of three vacation and birding trips highlighting Silas Canyon, Wyoming, by the very excellent slides and cemmentary ef Dirk Hagemeyer, Mrs. Margaret Anderson speaking on Birding in South Dakota and Colorado, and Marilyn Crane's pictures of birding and scenery ef Big Bend National Park. In April Mr. Rebert Dooley of the Houston Zee gave a program on a Bird Expedition to Venezuela. In addition to the Christmas Count and the Spring Big Day Ceunt, the Ornithology Group went on seven good birding trips. Beginning in September, a trip to Galveston and Bolivar Peninsula led by Steve Williams was highlighted by 123 species and many fall migrants! a weak-end trip to Palmetto State Park under the excellent leadership ef Fred Webster was particularly exciting and appropriate for its many sparrow sightings, fhis proved to be a field laboratory following our program on sparrow identification; the Brazoria Wildlife Refuge trip produced a great deal sf interest and 39 birders attended, LeCont's and Grasshopper Sparrows and a large flock of Black-crowned Nightherons were ameng the more interesting findings. Rewarding trips were made te Janes Ferest and Camp Strake, Cinco Ranch and the Silsbee-Big Thicket area, where we saw the Bachman's Sparrow and Red-cockaded Woodpecker and Swqllow-tailed Kites. These trips were under the able leadership of Marilyn Crane, Under the skilled leadership ef Linda Snyder the group visited High Island in April. Several of our new members attended this trip and.benefited by Linda's usual expertise in birding. Some of the rare species reported at various times of the year were the Reeve, Ruff, Swallow-tailed Kite, Yellow-headed Blackbird, the Lesser Blaek-backed Gull which returned to the Texas City Dike, Surf Scoter again seen in Oetober, Rufous and Allen's Hummingbirds, Oldsquaw and Iceland Gull. During migration the Tropical Kingbird, Brewster's and Cane May Warblers and Western and Hepatic Tanagers were sighted. Twelve excellent issues of the Spoonbill wore furnished to our members and subscribers during the year. Our editers, Mr. and Mrs, David Lefkevits, have done a most complete jeb in keeping membership current on the activities ef the group and matters of interest in the area of Ornithology. Some of the year's accomplishments are;
