Transcript Page 2 with the birds of the Cove area was a welcome diversion. Christmas counts were discussed and our genial host said that he would welcome the opportunity of participating in the forthcoming Houston count which,as of this year, is to be eonduoted farther to the east (from Battlegrounds to Chambers County Park). With Mr. McKay's invaluable assistance, Houston's 1957 count should show a marked Improvement over last year's. Mr. McKay's amazing and reliable records over the past 23 years speak for themselves; for example, he recorded 120 speeies on December 26, 1938 (within a 10 mile area) - the all-time Christmas count record for an unaided observer in Texas. The rain finally stopped for about an hour so we took advantage of it and headed across Old River (NE of Cove). Near the bridge we found a flooded field virtually alive with various shoreblrds: Least, Western. and Pectoral Sandpipers, Lesser Yellowlegs and White Ibis. The "peeps" busily went about feeding only a few yards from where we stood and some Tree Swallows flew by very close too. A Peregrine Falcon (uncommon migrant) also put In an appearance here. A little later (at the Trinity River near Wallisville) another unusual bird of prey flew by - an Osprey. We left Mr. McKay at Chambers County Park and shortly thereafter ran into rain again, Enroute to Houston we added Black Skimmers, the last bird of the day. It was 5:45 p.m. and our list totaled 82 species. Total species recorded by all parties was 88, an unusually high figure for a rainy day in September. Total mileage (by the writer) - 162 by car, 3 on foot. Observers: Carl Aiken, Jimmy Barnette, Johnny F. Barnette, L. A.

Mattei, Secretary) The Ornithology Group of the Outdoor Nature Club held its regular bimonthly meeting at 8:00 p.m. on October 3, at the River Oaks Garden Center. Twenty-eight members and several visitors were present. Those visiting us for the first time weres Mr, M. L. Heisey, Mr. Tommy Thompson, and Mr. Bob Lutz. Mrs. Louis Brand became a new member. The meeting was called to order by Chairman C. B. Gilman. Minutes of the previous meeting were read and approved as was the treasurer's report. Mr. Gilman reported that the check list committee was making progress on the revision and that the new cheek lists would probably be ready by February. He indicated that 3000 cheek lists would be printed at a cost of about $79.00, $25.00 of which is to be paid from the treasury and the balance underwritten and repaid as funds are available. The report of the Balscope Committee (Mrs. Norma Oates, and Miss Carrie Holcomb) was read. This report set forth a description of the Balscope costing as follows: Balscope and one eye piece (30-power) $115, an adapter for attaching the scope to either a tripod or a car window $15, and a carrying case $15 — or a total cost of $140.00, The club can get a discount of 10$ on this equipment, leaving a net cost of $130,60, which can be financed without interest or carrying charge. The committee recommended, however, that the Ornithology Group allocate an Initial payment of $30.50 from the club treasury and that the balance be paid off over the next eighteen months by fund-raising projects, one project being that of renting the scope to individual members when it is not being used on an official 0. G. field trip. After a brief discussion, a motion was made and carried that the scope be bought according to the plans of the committee. The chairman appointed Miss Holcomb and Mrs, Oates to continue functioning as a committee to develop ways and means of raising funds to pay for the balscope. Mr. J. F. Murray offered his resignation as representative to contact City Council members about making a nature sanetuary out of the fourteen- aere plott off Memorial Drive, Mrs. Edna Miner was asked to serve in this capacity but said that she was unable to do so, and the appointment was
