MONDAY, NOVEMBER h OG MEETING. 7:00 p.m. at Harris County Bayland Community Park located on the north side of Bissonnet just west of Hillcroft. Nancy Newfield, considered to be one of the top experts on hummingbirds of North America, will give a presentation on hummingbirds. She has been a licensed hummingbird bander since 1979, and in that time has banded more than 4000 individuals of 11 species of hummingbirds in Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas. Nancy is a widely published author of articles on hummingbirds (Condor. Birder's World. Rirr)jng, and Birdwatcher's Digest), and authored the booklet, "Louisiana's Hummingbirds" for the state of Louisiana. She is in demand as a lecturer and workshop leader and has lead several birding tours to Costa Rica. You don't want to miss this meeting! Learning Corner begins at 6:30 pjn. Dr. David Marrack will discuss how knowing a bird's relationship to its habitat aids in locating specific species. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 13: OG FIELD HUP TO BRAZOS BEND STATE PARK. Meet at the Park Headquarters entrance to the Park (You can buy a TPWD Conservation Passport there) at 8:00 a.m. This area is always excellent for waterfowl and passerine birds.

To reach the Park, take 288 south from Houston, take State 1462 west (right) through Rosharon, turn right onto State 762 and turn left into the park after approximately 1-2/3 miles and proceed to Park Headquarters.

Meet Gail Luckner and Winnie Burkett at the flats at 8:00 a.m. To get to Bolivar Flats, take the ferry from Galveston's east end to Bolivar Peninsula. Drive east on Hwy. 87, 3.7 miles and turn right on Rettilon Road. (Did you notice that Rettilon is "no litter" spelled backwards?) Drive to the beach. Turn right and drive along the beach until you reach the vehicular barrier. This half- day field trip will start at the barrier. Dress appropriately.

Meet at 7:30 a.m. for this half-day trip next to the Diamond Shamrock gas station/convenience store on the west side of Highway 6 at Briar Forest (parking lot for the reservoir is on the north side of the store). Bob Honig will be the trip leader. Barker Reservoir was built by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to control flooding on Buffalo Bayou, and is currently managed by Harris County as Cullen-Booker Park. Despite additions of park facilities, the reservoir remains largely undeveloped and provides an excellent variety of habitats—grasslands, brush, woodlands, wetlands and ponds—all within the western edge of Houston. Over 10 species of sparrows are possible, as well as hawks, woodpeckers and a variety of songbirds. Barker typically nets over 70 species during each Buffalo Bayou Christmas Bird Counts. Last year Common Ground Dove, Pyrrhuloxia, Bewick's Wren and Grasshopper Sparrow were spotted. We may be doing a lot of walking and it may be wet and muddy. Be prepared. For more information, contact Bob Honig at (713) 665-6963 or Dwight Peake at (409) 740-4621. MONDAY, DECEMBER 6: OG MEETING. 7:00 p.m. Harris County Bayland Community Center.
