Learning Corner at 7:00 P.M. .Mark your calendars: OG meetings will be held on the first Monday of each month beginning with the February 4th meeting! In order for the OG to have the large meeting room every month, the meeting date had to be changed to the first Monday. Eleven birders joined their diligent leader, Ruthie Helton, and her husband Don on December 1 tor the OG's Lake Texana field trip. Uhat a great birding spot! Twelve species of ducks fed, floated and slept in the water, 72 Wood Ducks perched in the water-killed trees, a Peregrine Falcon and Red-tailed Hawk lurked in the distant trees, Laughing Gulls and pelicans flew overhead and both Ruby and Golden-crowned Kinglets and woodland associates flitted in the reserve trees. After a perfect morning the seven birders joined the three couples camping at lovely Lake Texana State Park for lunch and then spent the afternoon birding. Eighty species were seen...not a bad day's work! A quick stop at the boat ramp on the way home Sunday was rewarded with the Cinnamon Teal, which was missing on Saturday. Our gratitude to Ruthie for a great day. Report by Karen Stoley. The Houston Audubon Society (HAS) office has acquired checklists and brochures from most of the wildlife refuges and state parks in Texas. If you are planning a birding trip anyplace in the states and want information on what is where, call the HAS office at 932-1639. They will be glad to send you what you need to plan your birding. If they don't have the particular checklist you need, they will help you find it. A donation to cover postage would be welcome. The Texas Parks and Uildlife Department has banded and color tagged Bald Eagle nestlings since 1985. If you are an Eagle watcher, keep an eye out for and report these birds. The birds have numbered and marked color patagial tags which can usually be seen only in flight. The right wing is marked with a yellow patagial tag and the left wing is marked with a blue (light) patagial tag with a yellow spot. If you see one of these birds, please report it to: D. W. Mabie, Texas Parks and Wildlife Dept., 715 South Bronte, Rockport, TX 78382. Submitted by Richard Uzar. The December 4th meeting of the Ornithology Group was called to order by Chairman Richard Uzar. Treasurer Arch Dillard presented the 1991 budget and announced that it would be printed in the December SPOONBILL and would be voted on at the January 8th meeting. Dr. David Marrack asked that a "moment of silence" be observed to honor all those who helped plant the 1000 tree seedlings and shrubs at
