Meet at 40-Acre Lake at 8:00 a.m. Go to the first large parking lot on your left after coming in through the park check- in station, if you are not camping and wish to join the group at this time.

A limited number of campsites have been reserved for the ONC/OG. Some hookups for RV's will be available and there will be sites for conventional camping. RESERVATIONS are needed: call John Buckman at 713-359-4685 ASAP. Thursday, Oct. 12: Outdoor Nature Club meeting at the Houston Arboretum at 7:30 p.m. The program will be "Rain Forests of Costa Rica," presented by Carlos Hernandez. Saturday, Oct. 21: This second Ornithology Group field trip will be to Galveston Island. It will be led by Arch Dillard, and should produce a good variety of late migrants and winter visitors. The trip will last most of the day, so bring lunch, drinks, a hat and insect repellent. We will meet at 8:00 a.m. at the west end of the seawall on Seawall Blvd. in Galveston. Take 1-45 south from Houston to Galveston; exit at 61st St.; turn right on 61st St.; drive to Seawall Blvd.; turn right and drive to the end of the seawall. THE CHAIRMAN'S MESSAGE So we are a study group of the ONC. And what exactly does that mean or imply for our regularly scheduled activities? What exactly is it that we are studying?

The primary objective of our Ornithology (study) Group, as a branch of the ONC, stated in our formative days is the "...promotion of the study, observation and recording of bird life." That idea, expressed in July, 1953, is as an articulate an expression of who we wish to be as any utterance I might produce. Yet the question remains, what exactly are we studying? One might argue that the activity of doing a field trip each month is promoting the study of bird life, and that the regular submission of field observations to the Clearing House and publishing of The Spoonbill fulfills our commission. So there! That ought to be the end of it. And I suppose, in the most shallow interpretation of our stated purpose, that argument would be true. Are we truly experiencing fulfillment in this accomplishment, or is there a greater hope for our collective effort? There is no question that our habit of regular field trips is very educational. But is it a study if we use these simply to add tick marks to a personal life list? Perhaps it is past time we rededicate ourselves to our primary objectives. Will you help in an exercise toward a redirecting of our group's energies? There are numerous things we could work on, but let's be specific, and
