Transcript Hod'* H^lt LMiikfr^gAcIt by Noel Pettingell 10 YEARS AGO/FROM AUGUST '79 SPOONBILL "Recommended Reading-Hazel Green, of Wimberly, recently sent an excerpt from 'Wildlife Watcher's Handbook' by Frank T. Hanenkrat, in which the author preaches restraint by photographers, data- seekers, birders or just the curious. He says, 'All of us should also show voluntary restraint (and observance of law) by staying away from endangered or rare species. For many of us who are intensely interested in wildlife this amounts to a kind of self- denial, and perhaps we should be able to earn points in some way by not having made the trip to see a rare creature. Many of us would like to see California condors at their nests, or peregrines at their aeries, or, if one should be found, an active ivory- billed woodpecker's nest. Don't try. No amount of interest in or love for animals entitles anyone to disturb these or other dwindling species.' "If you haven't read it, get a copy of Audubon Magazine and read Mr. Graham's 'Case of the Ugly Birder,' and listen to the thunder rumble. Resentment is mounting, and there is a storm coming that will engulf all birders because of the actions of a minority of the estimated 5 to 10 million birders in America. Take responsibility for your actions, and do nothing, even unconsciously, that will add to the problem. Be aware of the results of your actions for instance, did you know that a predator can later follow your scent if your approach too closely to a nest? did you know that taped bird calls during breeding seasons may force abandonment of the nest and drive the birds away? and the list can go on. "Enjoy birding, and by your actions prove it can be a joy to all around you." MAKE A BEACH BEAUTIFUL! Have you been to a Texas beach in recent years that was NOT littered with plastic bags, bottles, cups and other trash too disgusting to mention? Only Beach Buddies get that chance; after the TEXAS COASTAL CLEANUP they can look at miles of beach that has regained its natural beauty and serenity. The recent storm tides have gathered a lot of the trash at the vegetation line, so our work should be a bit easier this year. Let's do our part to help the cleanup and field more members this year. If you can't lean over to pick up, you can record the trash on the cards for those who can lean over. Get details at the September meeting or call the OG coordinators, George and Celeste Hinds at 984- 1634. Or just come to Bolivar Flats 9:00 to 12:00 noon on Saturday, September 23, and make the beach beautiful! THE OG BIRDING CARD CONTEST by Peter Gottschling Purpose: To increase interest and membership in the i OG and win new friends and influence enemies by " introducing yourself and the OG to other birders. How to play: Design a business card that does the above. Basic design requirements: 1. Everything must fit onto one side of a standard business card. 2. It should have our name, Ornithology Group. 3. It should have a short message telling who we (you) are and what we do. 4. It should say for further information contact "OG Membership," P.O. Box 271374, Houston TX 77277. 5. It may have a space for you to give your name and phone number so someone can contact you personally to learn more about the OG and your birding avocation. These requirements are pretty loose, so be creative and let it all hang out. First Prize: A free OG membership for one year. Second Prize: A picture of Zeiss 10 x 40 binoculars. Third Prize: Our gratitude for playing. Send entries to "OG, Birding Card Contest," P.O. Box 271374, Houston TX 77277. Entries must be postmarked no later than Sept. 15, 1989 so we can announce the winners at the Oct. meeting. Don Pardo will not announce the winners nor will the entries be audited by Price Waterhouse. Members, officers and Spoonbill editors are all encouraged to participate in this contest. j ORNITHOLOGY GROUP Elected Officers Chairman Richard Uzar Co-Chairman John Buckman Secretary Ronnie Carrol Treasurer Jerry Patrick Appointed Officers Spoonbill Editor Libby Price Assistant Editor.
