Transcript w Page 2 At the Baytown tunnel, we added gulls, Forsterfs Terns, Brown Pelicans, White Pelicans and Water Pipits to our list. The route then followed the Tri-City Beach Road to Chambers County Park where we enjoyed our picnic lunch. Along the way a number of woods birds were seen, Including Bluebirds, Yellow-shafted Flickers, Myrtle Warblers, Ruby-crowned Kinglets, Chickadees and several species of hawks and blackbirds. The return trip was made by way of the Lynchburg Ferry and a few more birding stops were made for hawks and water birds. Our species for the day totaled 64. Uhusual species recorded included, Kriderys Red-tailed Hawk (spotted by A.Y.); two Pigeon Hawks (Battleground), and several Scissor-tail Flycatchers (late migrants). Those who attended were: Nel Amthor, Vic Emanuel, Lloyd Lambert, Mr. and Mrs. C. R. Mattei, Ruth Moorman, Norma Oates, Mac Ramsey, Charlotte Reindl, Leota Stilwell, Josiephine Wilkin, and Armand Yramategui. Meeting; - November 10 - by Jerry Baker Principal business was discussions and plans for the program which the Ornithology Group will present at the next Outdoor Nature Club meeting. The Photography Group was invited to assist the Ornithology Group in putting on this program - to compensate for any lack of artistic ability which the bird group might possess. Leonard McWhirter, both birder and photographer, said he was already hard at work making slides, etc., for the program but that he runs out of birds occasionally. Slides of "birders in action" were shown, together with Josiephine Wilkin's photograph of the Oystercatcher which had only to be seen to be admired♦ The Woodcock is believed to have been heard on the Nov. 7 field trip. At the time, only a few members were familiar with its voice; therefore, the recorded call of the Woodcock was played several times so that other members will recognize its voice on future field trips. » Rookport-Aransas T.O.S.
