We have the good fortune of being in one of the major migratory flyways, as well as having access to both land and water birds. For knowledge to have value, it must be recorded. We have in Ronald Fowler a willing and orderly intellect who will make valuable use of all material sent to him. What YOU see and. YOUR observations recorded by Ronald have importance. And this doesn't mean just the oldtimers in the group; it means everybody. PLEASE DON'T FAIL US! ORNITHOLOGY GROUP REPORTS 0. G. FIELD TRIP TO FREEPORT REPORTED BY CLAYTON GILMAN After meeting on Almeda at Cleburne at 7:30, five cars of birders headed for the Freeport area. The first diversion was along Miller Road where, due to a heavy covering of duck weed on the lake, there were not many birds, but we did find a family of red-headed woodpeckers, a cormorant, egrets and a few spotted sandpipers. The outstanding sight of the day was a group of HISSISSIPPI KITES at Sandy Point that put on a real show with demonstrations of all their flight patterns.
