Transcript -\ §POOI\[B_XL Published by the Ornithology Group- Outdoor Nature Club Houston, Texas, lobby Price, Editor; Ellen Red, Asst. Editor VOLUME XXXIX, No. 4 April, 1990 ^... C«w^ Ev***lt Tuesday, May 1: Ornithology Group meeting at 7:30 p.m. at Bayland Park, off Bissonnet just west of Hillcroft. Our May meeting is traditionally given by members bringing their favorite slides of birds (five per person). We have excellent photographers in our group and the results are always enjoyed by all. Contribute if you can and come see this great show if you are not a photographer. LEARNING CORNER at 7:00; Don Richardson leading; identifying nesting birds by their songs. Thursday May 3: Deadline for Clearing House reports and for Spoonbill material. Thursday, May 10: Outdoor Nature Club meeting at 7:30 p.m. at the Houston Arboretum. Dr. Richard Baldauf of the Museum of Natural History will present "Amphibians." Friday-Sunday, May 11-13: Joint field trip of the Outdoor Nature Club and Ornithology Group. This first of two May trips will be to Enchanted Rock State Natural Area, near Fredericksburg. This weekend trip will offer birding, botany and photography. There will be an organized birding expedition on Sunday morning led by Tony Gallucci, a skilled and well-known birder who has lived in the Hill Country for the past several years. This birding foray, which will start around 8:00 a.m. (time to be confirmed), is expected to end around noon, allowing ample time for the drive back to Houston. Note that there will be more informal birding available on Saturday, perhaps with leadership furnished by one of the group. There will be camping over the weekend at Ladybird Johnson Municipal Park, three miles southwest of Fredericksburg. There are also motels in town. Call Irene Leslie at 780-2828 to reserve a spot on the trip and for more information. Saturday, May 26: The second May field trip will be to Jones State Forest and nearby areas to search for Red-cockaded Woodpecker and other Piney Woods specialties. The trip will be led by Al Barr, who will be assisted by Jim Stewart. Both of these birders know this area well. We will meet at 8:00 a.m. in Jones State Forest. To get there take 1-45 north from Houston past the Woodlands exit to the FM 1488 exit. Go left (west) toward Hempstead about 2_ miles on FM 1488 to an unmarked dirt road on the left. After making a left turn onto the dirt road drive a short distance to the first pond, which is the meeting place. If you come to a housing development on FM 1488, you have gone too far. The trip will last until early afternoon depending on the weather and the birds, so bring a lunch, plenty to drink, insect repellent and a hat for sun protection. Call John Buckman at 359-4685 for information. JUNE FIELD TRIP Friday-Sunday, June 1-3: Our June field trip will be a weekend affair to Kickapoo Caverns State Park and vicinity, north of Bracketville in Kinney County, where we will look for breeding birds of western affinities. Gray and Black-capped Vireos, among many other species, are nesters in the park. Kelly Bryan, the park manager and an accomplished field ornithologist, has agreed to lead our Saturday field trip in the park. This trip will start early Saturday morning (time to be advised), so a Friday night arrival in the Bracketville area is nearly a must. His schedule permitting, Kelly said he would also introduce us to a significantly different bird habitat at lower altitudes near Bracketville on Sunday. The OG will provide supplemental leadership if required. Although Bracketville is about seven hours drive (about 320 miles) from Houston, this trip offers a rare opportunity to visit this park, which is not open to the public, and sample a rich birding area. There is no camping or overnighting in the park so we recommend staying at a motel. Since trip logistics are a little complicated your early call to John Buckman at 359-4685 to reserve a place is requested. (continued next page)
