Transcript MINUTES OF OG MEETING SEPT. 5, 1989 New Chairman Richard Uzar conducted the first meeting of the 1989-90 year. The first item of business was to offer a round of applause to Ed Rozenburg in appreciation for the great job he did as chairman last year. Two sign-up sheets were circulated. One was for those planning to help with the Texas Coastal Cleanup on September 23. The other was for those interested in participating in one of several small study groups to research topics of interest to the group. A new addition to the regular OG meetings was discussed. Before each meeting at 7:00 p.m. novice birders will meet for an informal discussion moderated by an experienced birder. Don Richardson met with the group this time. The first Novice Time focused on the five peeps. There was an enthusiastic response to Novice Time and we expect it to become a regular part of the monthly meetings. Treasurer Jerry Patrick reported that the OG is in good shape financially, thanks to Phillips 66's generous contribution to the checklist. Jerry made a motion to establish an expenditures policy which would allow the officers to expend money for budgeted items and small expenses that do not recur, but give the whole membership time to consider any large expenditure or recurring expense rather than voting on it at the first meeting at which it is proposed. The motion is printed elsewhere in The Spoonbill. Members may read and consider the motion before voting on it at the October meeting. The long-awaited checklist, "A Birder's Checklist of the Upper Texas Coast," Seventh Edition, May, 1989, was presented to the group. After acknowledging Phillips 66, which printed the checklist, and Exxon, which helped with computer graphics, Richard turned the program over to David Dauphin to present an overview of the new checklist. Unlike previous checklists, this one was done on computer. The database belongs to the OG and will not be made available to the general public. It took the committee 1000 man-hours over eight months to compile. Every published bird record in Texas was examined and many authorities consulted so that each dot and dash on the checklist was justified. David claimed that this checklist is the best in the world. For the rest of his presentation he showed slides of some birds whose status on the checklist has changed. Fire ants were blamed for the decline of many shorebirds. Loss of habitat was another reason. Some species, we are happy to note, are on the increase. Before concluding, David welcomed any constructive criticism, which he would keep on file for the next revision. The checklist is on sale for 204 to members, 250 to non-members and 150 each if bought in lots of 100. Don Richardson presented the second part of the program on birding techniques for new birders. He stressed being quiet, doing nothing to disturb the birds, learning habitats for various species, and being considerate of both the birds and other birders in the use of tapes. Kathy DeFord, Secretary THANKS FROM THE EDITOR Another year of Spoonbills has gone to press, an accomplishment that could never have been made ^fr without the monthly efforts of our staff. Ellen Red ^mV as Assistant Editor helps with editorial decisions, saving the Editor many gray hairs, as well as writing articles and announcements. The Clearing House Editors, Rene and Andrew Franks, Lynne Aldrich and Peter Gottschling and Wally Gardner, have been very cooperative in getting their hard work done by deadline (or even sooner!) and keeping their format easy to handle. Connie Clark pastes up The Spoonbill in spite of an amazingly busy schedule of full-time job, night classes and volunteer work. Connie was a delegate to the Democratic convention and serves on the Traffic Committee of West University Place for example. Peggy Milstead has now got the address label list on computer, but still has to revise it constantly. The computer saves some work and creates a few headaches on occasion. Connie Schimbor has done her usual superb job with the mailing chores. Yetta Chapman has taken over when Connie was out of town. One could not ask for faster or more accurate service. The former Checklist Committee, composed of Ted Eubanks, Jr., Jim Morgan and Noel Pettingell, scanned masses of data to get out two updates to the checklist before Ted and Jim had to resign because of other responsibilities. The new committee Of Noel, David Dauphin and Ed Rozenburg, finished the updates and got the checklist ready for printing, ^E and did a superb job, as those of us at the last ^Lv' meeting were able to verify. The editor wishes to thank all of these people for the many hours of work they contributed and for their cooperative attitude which makes it a pleasure to work with them. Thanks also go to our contributors, may their tribe increase, because we depend on them to share their experiences with us. Thanks to their articles on area birding and trips they have made, we are better able to find birds, learn about them and increase our pleasure in birding.
