For reservations call Derek Muschalek (473- 6876) as soon as possible. The trip will officially get under way at 12:00 noon Saturday, when all participants will meet at the Sea Gun Marina at Lamar, which is just north of Copano Bay causeway on State Hwy 35. Look for the pink buildings on the left. At this time the group will organize and each person will pay $16 for a 4-hour ride on "The Pisces" (1-5 PM). Afterwards you could find accommodations at the Best Western in Fulton (512-729-8357) or camp at Goose Island State Park in Lamar (512-729-2858). On Sunday the group will reunite at the headquarters of the Aransas NWR at 8:00 AM to explore this great birding area. Saturday, Mar. 14: Ornithology Group field trip to Attwater Prairie Chicken NWR to see the chickens perform their courtship display and utter their "booming" calls. You can expect to see a number of different raptors and some sparrow species as well. Directions: take I-10 west to Sealy, exit on Hwy 36 (not the first Sealy exit), go south on 36 about one mile to FM 3013, turn right and go about 10 miles. After crossing the San Bernard River look for the refuge sign on the right, and go to the headquarters building where the trip will begin at 7:00 AM. We will bird until noon. Bring lunch if you wish to bird on your own after noon. SUCCESSFUL TREE PLANTING A group of OG members under the direction of David Marrack planted 130 trees in Galveston State Park on Feb. 7. The hardy souls were: Barbara and Sam House, Arch Dillard, Bill and Jean Harwell, Laura Singleton, Marilyn Crane, Anne Bushman, and Ellen Red. They were rewarded by the sight of four Palm Warblers. MINUTES OF THE OG MEETING, FEB. 5, 1987 Chairman Robert Thacker opened the Ornithology Group meeting and the treasurer, Peter Vennema, reported that dues were coming in slowly. Libby Price told of the new list of OG library books now being sold for ten cents at the meetings. The Nominating Committee's report for next year's officers was: Robert Thacker, Pres.; Ed Rosenburg, V.P.; Caroline Callery, Sec; Jerry Patrick, Treas. Rob reported that the Galveston Co. Commissioners had partitioned a section of Bolivar Flats for a bird sanctuary, and thanked Stennie Meadours for her efforts in making this possible. Rob told of a request from Hana Ginzbarg that the OG erect a Purple Martin house at Russ Pittman Park. The Chickadee Bookstore has volun- teered to donate one and give the OG a good price on another. Peggy Milstead moved that the OG purchase a martin house from the Chickadee for $99 for Russ Pittman Park. The motion was seconded and passed. Ted Eubanks reported on the Breeding Bird Atlas which Keith Arnold of A&M University is promoting. The OG has given $250 to this project and the Audubon Society $1000, but many more individual donations are needed. Rob introduced Noel Pettingell, who gave the program on the subject of bird listing. The highlight was reading some delightful entries from his new book. Ellen Red, Acting Secretary
