Transcript BOLIVAR SUNSET If you are looking for a spectacular birding experience, head to Bolivar Flats at sunset. From late July to mid-September, tens of thousands of birds roost at Bolivar Flats every night. One to two hours before sunset, large flocks of gulls and terns stream into the flats. The birds come off the gulf, cross Bolivar Peninsula from the bay and fry down the peninsula from wherever they have been feeding during the day. The chicks are thrilled to see their parents come back with food and the noise can be truly amazing. Egrets, herons and spoonbills show up along with pelicans and cormorants. One evening I watched 150 Snowy Egrets and 15 Roseate Spoonbills feeding on schools of little fish in the receding tide. When they started flapping around, other herons and pelicans noticed the activity and joined them. There were ultimately over 200 birds feeding together. What a sight. Every evening is different and each one spectacular. The new observation tower really gives you a great view of all the activity. Bring a chair and watch it all in comfort. If you are worried about long lines at the ferry, go on a weekday evening or wait until school starts in mid-August. Once school starts, the ferry lines are much shorter—even on weekends. Saturday, September 17 is Texas Beach Cleanup Day and as usual, help is needed at Bolivar Flats. The Houston Audubon sponsored cleanup starts at 9:00 a.m. and will be preceded by a field trip at 7:30 a.m. We will attempt to sort out fall shorebirds, which will be around in good numbers by then. Winnie Burkett DUES ALERT-LAST ISSUE! If your Spoonbill has "Last Issue" stamped on the front, it is because our records indicate you have not paid your 1994 dues. Printing The Spoonbill and the ONC Yearbook is costly, therefore, until your 1994 dues are paid we are not able to continue sending you our publications. ONC dues are $8.00 and OG dues are $12.00 for a total of $20.00. If you have paid your 1994 dues, please call Pat Wight (859-8817) so we can rectify the situation Remember, it is the membership that makes a club like the OG special. We value your support and interest AND we understand how easy it is to overlook paying dues. Dave Bradford, Chairman ADOPT-A-ROAD Sixteen OG and ONC members picked up 26 bags of trash along Highway 945 on June 25 in one and a half hours. Aaron & Karen Stoley, Calvin & Connie Blakley, Charlie & Wanda Smith, David Dody & Tyler Bradford Frank Greg, Russell Jeffords, Mary Tigner, Lois Lentz, Kellene Jarratt, Cissy Donaldson, and Gwen Kuntz celebrated with watermelon and donuts. Our thanks to Aaron Stoley for organizing this work force. Dates of future Adopt-A-Road excursions will appear in the next ONC Yearbook.
