This should be done immediately so that the parties can scout their areas and make all necessary arrangements. February 6 - Thursday - Bi-monthly meeting to be held at the River Oaks Garden Center, 2503 Westheimer. 8:00 p.m, ***** ORNITHOLOGY GROUP REPORTS **»***»«**»***# ># November 10 - Field Trip to Lake Houston Area - (Mr. C, B. Gilman) Our group must have lost its rabbit foot. In the past we have, with few exceptions, had almost ideal weather on our field trips. However, things have been different recently. The September field, trip was held In a veritable downpour, and our most recent one, held on November 10th, was not any great Improvement. The precipitation may not ha>% been as heavy, but the cold, raw wind made heavy "duds" and weather proof footwear feel mighty good. After meeting at the Sear's parking lot on Harrisburg, at 7:00 a.m., we proceeded out the Beaumont Highway to John Ralston Road, along which several stops were made, and where,we were pleased to hear the tuneful song of the White-throated Sparrow. By devious cross roads, we then proceeded to portions of the Sheldon Reservoir where various species of waterfowl were observed, as well as land birds in the thickets along the highways. Probably the Palm Warbler and Marsh Wren were the prize finds in this area. Buckhorn Lake was noteworthy for Its lack of bird life, although a considerable number of flickers, including one or two Red-shafted were observed there on the return trip. The group gathered at the Murray's camp on the San Jacinto River where we were joined by Mrs, Murray, to partake of a picnic lunch, and filled the cabin to overflowing. A Pileated Woodpecker, announced his arrival, and gave nearly everyone an opportunity to observe him In a nearby tree. Not satisfied with the minor hazards of birding, Carl Aiken also went "snaking", found two Copperheads, captured them and, with the able assistance of Klela Klaische, sacked 'ernup. What a taste in pets'. (No comment - Ed.) We were very happy to welcome Nancy and Jerry Strickling to the group, and It was quite evident that they will prove to be as enthusiastic birders as any of us„
