A CORRECTION On page II of the January SPOONBILL, David Dauphin wrote "Despite poorly detailed Eastern warblers on the Freeport Count, this is perhaps the best year in my memory for a virtual fallout of Southern and Western rarities this year". David says that though it was printed exactly as he wrote It, he meant to say "Despite a heavy tally of Eastern warblers on the Freeport Count, with only a few poorly detailed, this is perhaps the best year in my memory for a virtual fallout of Southern and Western rarities this year". He wanted the context to show that Freeport had lots of Eastern warblers but Southern and Western rarities drove all counts up. He says he Is galng to owe Jim Morgan another case of beer for falling to proofread his writing a little better! He doesn't want anyone to question a great count, Freeport, which he considers this country's most prestigious count. PAST EVENTS 00 Field Trip to W. Harris County On January 19, about 50 OG'ers met tn W. Harris County for a field trip Into this rapidly developing area. The trip began at Bear Creek Park where 5 species of woodpecker were found in addition to Sharp-shinned Hawk, Red-shouldered Hawk, Purple Finch and a good-sized flock of Rusty Blackbirds. At our next stop, near S. Mayde Creek, we received permission to bird on the property where Margaref Anderson and Marilyn Crane found a Green-tailed Towhee on the Cypress Creek CC. Just as Margaret was pointing out the bush where the towhee was first seen, up popped the bird! While trying to flush the bird back out for a better view, a real surprise occurred. We were treated to a second rare bird—an Ash- throated Flycatcher! After good looks at this bird we located a second Green-tailed nearby while the first individual was still being watched by some of the group. Other good birds seen on the day were Cinnamon Teal at Borgstedt's Pond, 2 White- tailed Kites and a Cooper's Hawk near Clay Rd. and Katy-Hockley Cutoff Rd., both a Harlan's and Krlder's Red-tall, Ground Doves, and 5 Groove-billed Anis, in addition to the usual birds more common to W. Harris Coun+y. In all, 93 species were recorded on the day. MINUTES OF OG MEETING, February 7, 1980 David Dauphin opened the meeting and asked for announcements, which were made as fo11ows: 1) Our bank balance is $4,813.00. Much of this money will be used for printing the new Checklist. 2) Thanks were expressed to Mr. & Mrs. J.G.G.frost (long-time SPOONBILL subscribers from Sandusky Ohio) who donated $25.00 for the new tripod for the 0G scope. 3) Another appeal was made for volunteers for help In typing the CH. 4) Our new Upper Texas Coast Checklist will be ready soon, and will sell for I0« apiece at the 0G meeting, lOtf plus postage by mail. 5) Call David Dauphin (383-3955) for Information on rare birds (or unusual birds) before going birding, especially to the Rio Grande Valley. 6) There will be a showing of Linda Roach's paintings at The Chickadee, beginning March IIth.
