NEWS BRIEFS AND YARD REPORTS Uhen the last individual of a race of living things breathes no more, another heaven and another earth must pass before such a one can be again. William Beebe (1877-1962), author and curator of ornithology at the New York Zoological Society in 1899. 1991 OG dues will be due in January, but if you pay up early, in November or December, your dues will be credited through December 1991. Send dues to Dr. Arch Dillard, 142 Imperial Drive, Friendswood, TX 77546-3827. Single membership-$15.00; double membership-$30.00; and The Spoonbill subscription only is $13.00. Each membership includes dues of $5.00 for the Outdoor Nature Club membership. The Ornithology Group thanks ONC Conservation Chairman, Jack Gillette for writing and running the computer program to revise (capitalize!) the OG mailing labels. Peggy Milstead reports that the post office has been using the lack-of-a11-caps as an excuse of some tardy deliveries of The Spoonbill. Peggy is most grateful to Jack as it would have taken her a year AND many, many hours on the computer to revise the mailing label list. Correction to U.T.C. Checklist Statement and Update published in the August 1990 Spoonbill: Number 8. Lesser Black-backed Gull. Dates should read 9/5/89-3/31/90, not 9/15/90. Bev and Al Clarke of the Brazosport Birders attended the HLumer/Bird Celebration in Rockport in September and they reported a "Hum-dinger" of a weekend. Bev and Al reported the lectures were well attended, deservedly so, and that the speakers were on hand generally throughout the weekend to answer questions and to autograph books. Over 300 people attended this, the 2nd Annual Hummer/Bird Celebration, sponsored by the Coastal Bend Audubon Society and the Rockport/Fulton Chamber of Commerce. On one of the birding excursions, Bev and Al reported sighting Acadian and Great-crested Flycatcher, Ladderback Uoodpecker, Wood Stork, Magnificent Frigatebird and lots of hummers, Ruby-throated and one Rufous. An old friend, Ben Feltner, Hill be returning to Texas to lead six days of Tex-Mex birding along the Rio Grande. The aim of the trip is to "find all of the South Texas specialties and rarities."
