Transcript The Volume 45, No. 4 April 1996 Spoonbill Published by The Ornithology Group, Outdoor Nature Club, Houston Calendar MAY Monday, May 6: OG Membership Meeting. 7:00 p.m. St. Philips United Methodist Church, 5501 Beechnut at Renwick. Mario Cohn-Hoft, a doctoral student at Louisiana State University, will present a program entitled "Bio-geography of Little Green Amazonian Flycatchers That All Look and Sound Alike." Mario, born and raised in Massachusetts, received his bachelor's degree in biology from Dartmouth College and his master's from Tulane on dietary specialization in Amazonian birds. A naturalist since earliest memories and a birder since age 14, Mario first visited the Amazon after college graduation in 1987 for what was supposed to be a 6-month birdbanding internship. He stayed three years, became fluent in Portuguese, fell in love with the birds, the forest and the people of Brazil, and met the Brazilian scientist who became his wife. He lives in the United States long enough each year to meet requirements for school and owns a house in Manaus, Brazil. Mario occasionally leads tours for Field Guides. Mario wrote, "I'm interested in all aspects of bird biology, especially vocalizations, species limits, distribution patterns and behavior of Amazonian forest birds. And, I've been involved in the discovery of two new birds (species or sub-species) so far, but there are more out there!" This should be a fascinating program. Pre-meeting Learning Corner at 6:30 p.m.: Karen Beekman on bird vocalizations. Saturday, May 4: OG Field Trip to Atkinson Island. This trip, limited to the first 14 who sign up, has been filled, however, if you are interested in participating, call Bill Eley. A second boat will be made available if another 14 sign on for the trip, or a cancellation may enable you to go. Participants will be ferried to Atkinson Island, located at the north end of Galveston Bay just off the tip of LaPorte, for a half-day of birding with P.D. Hulce. Bring your lunch and appropriate footwear for wet and muddy walking. Meet at 7:30 a.m. at Bayland Park in Baytown (on the Baytown side of LaPorte bridge). Expect to see breeding Least Terns and Black Skimmers, as well as rails and shorebirds. Bill Eley, 662-0034. Friday-Sunday, May 10-12: OG Field Trip to Kenedy Ranch. The Kenedy Ranch, just south of Sarita, Texas off U.S. Hwy. 77, has a large population of nesting Ferruginous Pygmy-Owl and nesting Tropical Parula. The ranch managers have offered the OG a special rate of $ 100 for two nights and a day and half of birding on this large, private south Texas ranch. They provide guide service and a large bunkhouse that sleeps 11. You must provide your own sleeping bag and food. If you do not mind sleeping in a bunkhouse with 10 others, this is your chance to see many of the Rio Grande specialities. This trip is limited to 11 participants. Register early. Call David Bradford between 9:00 p.m. and 9:45 p.m. to sign up and for trip information. JUNE Saturday, June 1: 7th AnnualOG Potluck Picnic and Field Trip. Brazos Bend State Park. Details in next month's newsletter.
