Transcript .....„PLEASE NOTE: THE BOARD OF THE OUTDOOR NATURE CLUB HAS VOTED to raise ONC dues from $5 to $8, effective 1 February 1993. This would rake total dues for OG members to $17.00. (Get your checks in the mail to save a few bucks.) The Board's vote was based on rising costs and the fact that ONC dues have not been increased in quite a few years. OG costs similarly have increased. I would like to entertain a motion at the next OG meeting to increase OG dues from $10 to $12 (thus total ONC/OG dues would be $20.00. If such a motion is made, this announcement will serve as advance notice to the OG membership so a vote can be taken immediately. Bob Honig, OG Chairman. ••••••• JvnNUTES OF OG MEETING, DECEMBER 7,1992: David Bradford wrapped up his great sparrow identification session for the Learning Corner. Chairman Bob Honig opened the meeting at 7:30 P.M. The proposed budget [shown below] for 1993 was presented and will appear in the December issue of The Spoonbill prior to membership voting on its approval at the January 11, 1993 meeting. Following a brief business meeting and field trip announcements, Bob requested notable bird sightings. Among the notables were Pyrrhuloxia, Ferruginous Hawk, Mountain Bluebird and Rufous Hummingbird. Gail Luckner announced that the January meeting will be on the second Monday, January 11, and that Jon Dunn will be the speaker. Gail then introduced writer and photographer, John Tveten, who proceeded with a wonderful presentation of slides and stories of his trip to the Galapagos Islands. He explained the islands northwest of Ecuador are not tropical due to the cool (58-70 degree) Humboldt Current. Mr. Tveten described the system of tectonic plates in the area, the discovery of the Galapagos, evidence of visits from the Inca of Peru and Charles Darwin's visit which contributed to his theory of natural selection. Mr. Tveten introduced us to Lava Gulls, California Sea Lions, marine Iguanas and Lava Lizards. Mr. Tveten described snorkeling in grottos of crystal blue water where fur seals would make nose-to-nose contact while investigating the humans. Nesting Blue-footed Booby, Great Frigatebird, Tree Cactus, 700 lb. toroise...there is a lot to wonder at in the Galapagos and the slide presentation whetted many appetites.

NOEL'S NICHE LOOKING BACK By Noel Pettingell 10 YEARS AGO/FROM DECEMBER 1987 SPOONRTI T. On Coping with Non-birders bv Dorothy Dimsdale A birder's spouse leads a lonely life. A birder can bird anywhere as long as the outdoors can be seen; almost every other hobby is limited to either specific time periods or to particular localities. From another viewpoint, one could say that a birder can be a pain in the neck 24 hours a dayl ...do birders ever consider what a drag they are to their partners? For instance, lugging bird books and binoculars everywhere and looking for birds everywhere. Examples: A shriek of rapture was once heard coming from inside a restroom in the San Gabriel Mountains when a Western Bluebird nest was discovered there. Another time, through the window of a church during a funeral, a longspur species was sighted. The specifications were not noted, as the binoculars were wrenched from the birder's hands by the indignant spouse.
