Transcript NEWS BRIEFS .MINUTES OF OCTOBER 4, 1993 OG MEETING: Winnie Burkett gave a talk on putting ornithology back into your birding for the Learning Corner. [Winnie encouraged everyone keep a journal and to submit interesting observations of bird behavior to The Spoonbill and other ornithological journals, noting that professional ornithologists can't see everything and amateur ornithologists have made great contributions to science with their individual observations and long term group endeavors such as Christmas Bird Counts. Winnie read from her own journal and told of seeing 50 or so hummingbirds swarming around the oak tree near the Barn Owl barn at Smith Woods. On close observation she found that they were feeding on the sweet liquid in the caps of acorns that had fallen. She tasted it and found that it was indeed sweet! Ed.] Chairman David Bradford opened the meeting at 7:00 p.m. Treasurer Mike Gremillion stated that he is still looking for suggestions as to how to spend our extra money. Current ideas include special program speakers and scholarships for Victor Emmanuel birding trips for kids. Field Trip Chairman Dwight Peake announced that we need volunteers to help with field trip carpook. David Veselka announced that the first youth field trip k coming up on October 16, so if you know of any interested kids ages 12 - 18, have them call him (692-1384).

Peggy Boston announced the upcoming Southern Flights of Fancy Audubon Awards Dinner on October 28 at the J.W. Marriott in the Galleria. The Roger Tory Peterson Award will be presented at thk dinner. Pam Palmbino k putting together new field checklkts for Bolivar Flats and High Island and would like people to send recent sightings her way.

FISH AND WILDLIFE SERVICE (FWS) TO mCREASEIAWENFORCEMENT PRESENCE IN HILL COUNTRY. FWS...has announced the establishment of a permanent federal wildlife law enforcement station in Austin, Texas. The move k in response to the large volume of reports of illegal land clearing activities in the developing urban counties surrounding Austin. FWS receives numerous reports of potential clearing and destruction of endangered species habitat. Most of the reports are linked to concerns for habitat of the endangered Golden-cheeked Warbler and the Black-capped Vireo...two species which require habitat unique to the Texas Hill Country for their survival. "Clearing endangered species habitat k against the law, and unfortunately for the species, it k currently happening," said FWS Southwest Regional Director Dr. John Rogers. Until the new Austin Law Enforecement office k open to report violations or to seek assistance, contact FWS at 1874 Grandstand Drive, San Antonio, TX 78238, (512) 681-8419. FWS News Release, October 1, 1993. Submitted by Bob Honig DID YOU GO SEE THE BLUE-FOOTED BOOBY? Since June thk immature booby has been hanging out on Marjorie Bryant's dock at Granite Shoak, Texas on Lake LBJ, and though its not the first Blue-footed Booby for Texas(the first was spotted October 5,1976 on South Padre Island), birders have been traveling from far and wide to add thk booby to their state lkts. Thk bird attracted the attention of ABC News and was featured on ABC World News Tonight with Peter Jennings October 13 or 14. Ako mentioned in the piece was the Collared Plover spotted near Uvalde by Gail Luckner a couple of years ago and Rockport's Hummingbird Celebration. You may be interested to know ako that Peter Jennings explained that people who go around looking at and for birds are "birders." We are birdwatchers no more!
