Transcript Publication of the Houston Outdoor Nature Club Ornith OG News & Announcements also quite although we did get looks at several Black-crowned Night-Herons in the usual winter roost in the tall cattails across the pond from the observation platform. At our next stop we were able to locate a few Marsh Wrens and a Common Yel- lowthroat. By now it was time to join Kelly McDowell for the rest of the tour. When we met up with him he surprised us by taking us along with a group from TAMU who were working on a Ph.D. project studying Yellow Rails. After a few minutes of instructions and introductions. A few of us grabbed ropes and nets to help flush and capture rails for the study. We attempted to flush Yellow Rails towards the main group from the field trip. We "weren't very successful in getting rails out where everyone could see them, but we did manage to flush 4 Yellow Rail, 1 Black Rail, 1 Sora, and many sparrows and Sedge Wrens. Sparrows that I was able it identify were Seaside, Savannah, Le Conte's, White-throated, and Swamp. I regret that we were not able to get more of the group in a position to see the Yellow Rails, although it sure was exciting for us out on the prairie chasing and trying to help capture the rails. I would like to try another Yellow Rail field trip with the OG. Watch the Spoonbill for details. I'm going to stay in touch with the Yellow Rail study at Anahuac. I've some ideas on how to flush the rails so that more can see them. I'm considering a much longer line of rope and flushers, maybe 200' and working in a V concentrating and flushing birds towards the main group. Watch the Spoonbills for details for this tentative trip sometime in late February or early March. Report filed by David Sarkozi, Field Trip Coordinator Future Field Trip Set David would like to designate the Houston Christmas Bird Count (CBC) as the OG's December field trip.

The joint venture features classes taught over a six month period and includes all the birding habitat accessible in the Houston area. It offers an excellent way for people to get into birding. As in years past, classes are led by the very capable Don Richardson. Classes are taught in the field and begin in late winter, run through spring and end in early summer of 1997. The students learn identification, technique and where to bird. Besides looking for and at birds, students also learn from discussion about birding materials. Doris personal experience and hard won advice are also shared. The combination builds confidence in the beginner. Class size is limited to 12 participants to enhance the learning process. Each class will participate in five day-long field classes, one per month from February through June of 1997.
