Rockport-Aransas Refuge Field Trip Meet at HopperTs Landing, Austwell (Sat. j 8AM Due to the ever-increasing amount of material pouring in from "contributing editors" (thanks) to the SPOONBILL, several new departments have been created (beginning with this issue) in an attempt to offer as varied a "menu" as possible of "choice morsels" to fit everyone's reading tastes... ORNITHOLOGY GROUP MEETING REPORT - OCTOBER 7 Again, as at tho last "business" meeting of the O.G., bird recordings and slides highlighted the proceedings. Mrs. Edna Miner played her "Music and Bird Songs" LP record featuring the songs of the Winter Wren, Song Sparrow, Wood and Hermit Thrushes at both natural as well as 1/2, l/4, and l/8 normal speeds. All present were spellbound as they listened to the unbelievably intricate patterns of each bird's song in slow motion." Tho commentary and analysis by James H. Fassett of CBS Radio was most enlightening and very well done. (Ed. Note: "Music and Bird Songs", a 10-in. 33-1/3 vinylite record, may be obtained from Cornell Univ. Press, Ithacr, N.Y. §5.00.) Ella Wolfer's excellent color slides of the nests of Swainson's Hawk, Cactus Wren, and Red-wing were shown next, followed by slides taken by members of the Fnotography Group of bird paintings for teaching purposes. Mr. McV/hirter reported on his vlsib to the "Thursday Island" Spoonbill sanctuary near Morgan's Point and added that he hopes to supplement the vegetation already growing there so as to improve this significant breeding site o£ one of America^ most spectacular birds. (Ed. Note : Francis McMahon says these spoil banks will soon be enlarged, as further dredging operations are planned in the near future; also, To0.S. editor, Kincaid tells of a breeding colony of Spoonbills at Eagle Lake, 60 air-miles from the coast, and mentions reports of the bird in Beaumont and Oklahoma—truly an amazing comeback for a bird which did not begin its current breeding cycle in Texas until some 35 years ago...) Other topics discussed at this meeting included: 1) The forthcoming (about 1-1/2 years) TEXAS GUIDE TO BIRDS by Roger Tf Peterson (see Oct. NEWSLETTER;; 2) Lake Houston controversy; -5) The Whooping Crane migration now under way (see "Clearing House"). LUNAR WATCH REPORT - OCTOBER 9 Observers were there ten strong but, "where oh where were the little birds flyins?" Not across the face of the noon, that's for sure. (Could they have Imovro of the tropical disturbance?) ..Only forty-two birds were counted by the first shift of observers. Those on the second shift, who were to c° on duty at 1AM were given the privilege of dismantling the telescopes, tables, and chairs. Then they were told they could go home and get some sleep to which no one objected.
