Transcript I __=3 VOLUME XX, No. 7 November, ly/1 PUBLISHED BY THE ORNITHOLOGY GROUP. OUTDOOR NATURE CLUB. HOJ3TON, TEXAS 19/1 CHBX&CK-S -COUNT by Sarah Gordon We want this reminder to alert vou to the date of our Christmas Count this year, your calendar for Sunday, January 2nd, and make your plans now to participate. i-.ark For those who are new members it might be of interest to know that the first annual Christmas Bird census was in 1900, and only 25 reports were submitted. Only 2/ people participated. Last year a record breaking 903 reports were published with over 16,000 observers. Texas alone had 53 counts published, more than any other state. How fortunate we <rre to live in such a good birding area! The purpose of th© Christmas Count is to keep track of our chinging bird populations. It is one of our most exciting and stimulating field tiips of the year, and participants derive much fun and excitement year after year. The count makes it possible to accurately follow the frequency aiV geographical extent of northern birds, the spreei of such birds as ths St-srling and hous* Sparrow across the country. Also birds such as Cattle Egrets can o« traced* Perflation trends are followed, and an index to the changes in abundan.e of birds in wintering areas are obtained. In the future the Christmas Count should become even more valuable as a means of showing trends in bird population as a result of such things as use of insecticides, growth of cities, drainage of marshes and any other means of changing habitat. The Christmas Count offers not only the excitement of finding a "rarity" or unexpected out-of-range or out-of-season bird and the satisfaction of aiding the cause of conservation, but also fellowship with those who love birds and enjoy our woods, streams and marshlands. Detailed plans will be published in the December issue of The Spoonbill, FIELD TRIP TO AKKAND'S BAYOU by Avis Brister The name of Armand Yramategui has a special place in the hearts of CG, members, so on October 23 s field -rip to Armand*s Bayou and the area surrounding it hqd a special interest to this group of birders. The land, which is presently owned by the Friendswood Development Company, has been preserved as a bird sanctuary. In this respect it is very valuable because coastal birds are found right alongside land birds. The bayou the adjoining coastal prairi© and the finger of pin© forest which filters into th© area comprise a unique ecosystem that offers a rare opportunity for nature study. The field t**ip was led by Mrs. Hana Ginzbarg, a director of the Houston Audubon society, and a hike through the area produced 43 birds. Notable among them were the uncommon Osprey, the Eastern Bluebird, a Cooper's Hawk and a Winter wren. To the delight of all, the Pileated Woodpeckers were very much in evidence. Their drumming and calls were heard frequently, and several times they were observed on the dead trees that rose from the waters of the bayou. At the conclusion of the trip the 33 people attending gathered for a picnic lunch at the Bay Area Park,
