Ferguson. This brisk fall weather should encourage everyone to bring family and friends and enjoy the beauty of the Little Thicket Nature Sanctuary. Come at any time, and if you plan to stay overnight, bring bedding and food. There will be something of interest for everyone - plants for the botanists, birds for the ornithologists, snakes for the herpetologists, insects for the entomologists, and trees for those who just want to sit in the shade and relax. Even a refreshment booth to buy hot and cold drinks, home-made pie and cake, hot buttered pop corn and apples. Proceeds go to the Sanctuary fund. Lets all take advantage of this opportunity to visit the Sanctuary and at the same time get better acquainted with other members of the Club. November 26-27 ~ T.O.S. 1955 Fall Field Trip to Rockport —»«—i • ——«— ■ i in ii i iswmm-sm. i i ■ i i n i i i i i i m ii <»—■*msm*»»■' 'nr »■ i mmmmm*. ■ i i ■ i i « n I i n n ■■ i i i — i i 11 ■! i For the third year the Texas Ornithological Society has selected the Rockport- Aransas National Wildlife Refuge area for its fall field trip to be held on Friday, Saturday and Sunday following Thanksgiving. Interested birders, whether members of T.O.S. or not, are invited to attend this outing. Plans include field trips to the Aransas National Wildlife Refuge, wintering grounds for wild turkeys, ducks, geese, many shorebirds, and numerous species of woods birds, as well as the fajjious tthooping Cranes. A 37 foot tower has been built on the refuge at Dagger Point and a 30-power telescope was provided by the T.O.S. so that visitors to the refuge will have an opportunity to view the whoopers without disturbing them. Boat trips are being planned along the intracoastal canal following the coast-line of the refuge. In this way the whoopers may be observed at closer range as boats moving up and down the canal past their feeding grounds do not seem to disturb them. Each party will make their own reservations for overnight accommodations. Boat reservations are to be made with Miss Carrie Holcomb, 1008 Missouri, Houston 6, Texas (JA-4-4985).
