Transcript c_ ssa VOLUME XI JULY No. 3 1962 ************************ "In this latitude, much vegetation, * * instead of being in its prime at the time * * of the solstice, as in more northern re- * * gions, has reached or gone beyond its mat- * * urity. The period of heat is not half * gone, but for many plants growth is more * * than half completed and in some cases is * * practically at a standstill. Although for * * many weeks the superficial appearances are * * those of summer, hidden processes of life * * are pointing towards the quiescence of * fall. Hot, dry days of July and much of * * August, even though interspersed in some * * years with many rains, are a time of ■; * * stagnation for some birds and other life * * that ushered in the earliest warm days * of spring." * * Wild Acres Henry Kopman A book of the Gulf Coast Country ************** * * * * * PUBLISHED BY THE ORNITHOLOGY GROUP, OUTDOOR NATURE CLUB, HOUSTON, TEXAS August 2 (Thursday) August 12'(-Sunday) - COMING EVENTS 0.

M. eight cars had reached-the intersection of North Shepard and Hwy. 75j which was to be our meeting place for the Big Spring field trip. The day was beautiful, partly cloudy and warm. The high predicted was 90° and winds were from the south at 5 mph. Seventeen miles south of Conroe we turned onto a small dirt road. Three miles down this road, a search for warblers was started in a grove of oaks, while Jim Ellis, our leader, scouted ahead. The grove produced Buntings, Cardinals, Carolina Chickadees, Crows (flying by), Tufted Titmice, and Downy, Pileated and Red-bellied Woodpeckers. In addition, the voices of the Pileated and Downy Woodpeckers, Titmice and Cardinals were heard abundantly. A precariously narrow dirt road led us to a fence line, where with a little walking the following birds were seen: Kentucky Warbler, Great-crested Flycatcher, Blue-gray Gnateateher, Blue Jay, Eastern Kingbird, Brown-headed Nuthatch, Turkey and Black Vultures, White-eyed Vireo, Red-headed Woodpecker and Parula Warblers. Victor Emanuel's discovery of some blackberry bushes halted birding temporarily, while some hot, weary birders enjoyed the fruit. The taste of the berries made the decision to adjourn to the oaks for lunch easy.
