Transcript "_> sfc-a A robin redbreast in a cage Puts all heaven in a rage. VOLUME XVIII, No. 3 July, 1969 A skylark woun-tad in the wing, A cherubim does cease to sing. He who shall hurt the little wren Shall never be belov'd by men.* from "Auguries of Innocence" by William Blake PUBLISHED BY THE ORNITHOLOGY GROUP, OUTDOOR NATURE CLUB, HOUSTON. TEXAS MINUTES OF THE JUNE PICHIC MEETING OF THE ORHITHOLOGY GROUP JUNE 7, 1969 Forty-two people attended the June picnic meeting at Gladys Galbreath* s farm on Cutten Road. The group began gathering at 2%00 P.M. and birded until picnic time - about 5 P.m. Bluejays, Cardinals, Grackles, and Mockingbirds were very much in evidence. Cattle Egrets flew down the creek, a pair of Carolina Wrens scolded in the brush near the bridge, and two Eastern Kingbirds sunned themselves on a nearby fence wire. And it was sunny, and it was hot! But the numerous Meadowlarks did not seem to mind, nor did the Bobwhites we flushed in the meadows. Yellow-billed Cuckoos were numerous and vocal around the farm house. Other sightings included the Carolina chickadee, Brown-headed Cowbird, Tufted Titmouse, and a Pileated Woodpecker tearing off great chunks of bark from a dead tree. The Common Nighthawk and the Chimney Swift flew high and low while, at dusk, two pairs of Purple Martins were joined by some thirty to forty others for some precision flying. Those birders among us who were also botanists identified the plants, trees and flowers, including the Wild Orchid (Ladies Tresses), Little Hip Hawthorn, Baby Blue Eyes, Wild Iris, and Huscadine Grape. At 6«15P.H. Mr. Wallace C, Mebane, Jr. called the meeting to order. The half-dozen visitors were asked to introduce themselves and were welcomed by the Chairman. In the absence of the Secretary, Mr. Mebane waived the reading of the minutes of the last meeting. Miss Sarah Gordon read the Treasurer's Report for the fiscal year April 30, 1968 to April 30, 1969 and for the two-month period April 1, 1969 through May 31, 1969. Balance on hand May 31st was $121.07. Mr, Mebane announced that there are only a few of Steve Williams' books left, at $1.25 each. Wally remarked that although the book is getting out of date, it is considered to be sort of a collector's item, Hest record cards, for free, are also available. The Houston International Exhibition of Photography will be held August 4-15. Of particular interest to us, according to Mr. Mebane, will be the nature slides to be shown at 8;00 P.M., August 14, at the Houston Lighting & Power Company, 610 West Loop. He also reminded us of the June 15 field trip scheduled to depart from the Angleton Courthouse at 7s45 A.M. Those present then extended a vote of thanks and a round of applause to the Bradleys for editing the SP00HBILL for the past two years, to Marian Washburn for her two years as program chairman, to both Marian and Dan Washburn for the loving care with which they printed the OG roster, and to Gladys Galbreath for letting us come out to her farm for our picnic. Gladys extended an invitation to come again, particularly for the spring and fall migrations. There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 6i30 P.M. Respectfully submitted, Louise Rogers, Secretary Pro Tempore EWELL AND JULIA BRADLEY VISITS KERRVIL__ * The above couplets are inscribed on tablets embedded in a stone wall in a tiny bird sanctuary on the grounds of the Butt-Holdsworth Memorial Library in .Kerrville.
