Learning Corner Coordinator needed! The ONG needs someone to coordinate the Learning Corner for future meetings. Please call David Sarkozi to volunteer. I've seen the future of birding and it looks very bright indeed While I was scouting for the Great Texas Birding Classic GTBC, I ran into a couple ofthe "roughwing" teams. These teams are made up of kids, ages 8-13.1 was frankly impressed These kids were good very good The winning team found 125 species in eight hours of birding. The third place team had 115. Think about this achievement. How often have you had a 100 species day in that short a time? Not only did these kids find more than fifteen species per hour, they did it without a driver's license. I watched and talked to them. They were excited about birding and while they made mistakes, they showed me that they were really learning and had knowledge many birders would envy. The flame is lit, but we need to be fanning that flame. Birding can't be a once a year event for them. We need to nurture that interest. In short, we need field trips for them. Are there any OG members up to this challenge? Would any of you be interested in developing a youth program? How about a youth committee? We need field trips and we need to get the word out to them. I think an excellent way would be to form a group that would advise merit badges for the Boy/Girl Scouts. We could reach many youths at once. We need to do this. We need to form and train our own Roughwing team. Anyone up to getting ready to pass the torch?
