Transcript The Spoonbill A Publication of the Ornithology Group Of the Houston Outdoor Nature Club December 2002 Vol. 51 No. 10 January Program BIRDS OF SOUTH AFRICA Steve Matherly will take us on a photographic birding tour of South Africa. The Republic of South Africa boasts a bird list of over 800 species. As we might expect, this species diversity is directly related to habitat diversity. Pelagic trips to the rich waters off Cape Town frequently encounter six species of albatross. The unique vegetation around Cape Town supports a number of endemic species, most of which seem to have "Cape" in their name like "Cape Sugarbird" and "Cape Sparrow". Around lakes and marshes, migrant shorebirds like Ruffe share the habitat with African shorebirds. Our tour will conclude in the desert grasslands of the Kalahari, Which support birds that prefer a drier habitat Steve's birding career started at the age of two, when, while watching the spring waterfowl migration with his parents in southwest Iowa, one of his first words was "tintail". From his roots in Iowa, Steve has expanded his birding range to include all the continents except Australia, a fault mat he says he intends to correct in the next couple of years. Another of Steve's faults is that he has been known to chase a rare bird now and then. Since 1997, Steve has been one of the co- compilers for NARBA, the North 7:00 p.m. Monday, January 6 Bayland Community Center 6400 Bissonnet Learning Corner 6:30 p.m. Ron Thacker will present bird identification tips. Inside this issue: About the OG 2 Chairman's Message 3 OG Schedule 3 Field Trips 5 Summer Birding in the Adirondacks 6-7 Membership Form 8 American Rare Bird Alert. Steve was instrumental in helping to move NARBA into the internet era, and now NARBA reports are available both via telephone and the internet Over the last ten years, Steve has mixed his passion for birds, travel to exotic places, and love of photography. As a result, he is one of Houston's newest "professional" photographers, as two of his photos are in the December issue of the British magazine "Birdwatch". Join us on the 6th for a South African tour. 1
