G. field trip to Galveston. Meet at ls30 p.m„ at the Thornhill's Calfeterla just off the Gulf Freeway. Miss Ruth Moorman will be the trip leader. October 3 - Thursday/ - The exact location of the next bi-monthly meeting of the Ornithology Group has not yet been decided. It will probably be held at the River Oaks Garden Center, 2503 Westheimer. A more definite notice will be given in the September "Spoonbill". a********************** ORNITHOLOGY GROUP REPORTS July 14 - 0. G. Field Trip to Angleton and Freeport - (Noel Perley) High temperatures and humidity are the rule along the Texas Gulf Coast during the summer months and July 14, was no exception. Temperatures ranged from 76 to 94 In Houston, (56% humidity at 12s30 p.m.) and 81 to 92 at Galveston. Consequently, a relatively small group of fifteen hardy birders was on hand to brave the intense heat in order to observe an equally small, but Interesting, variety of summer birdlife. By 8s00 a.m. we were well on our way toward Freeport, in S. Brazoria County. Enroute to Angleton, we turned off highway 288 for a side trip along Miller Road, near Juliff. Here we found the bird of the day, an Indigc Bunting (rare summer resident). It was singing, so we were able to compare its song with that of the Painted Bunting, a fairly common summer resident here. Proceeding south along Old Angleton Road some 5^ miles, we arrived at the Angleton Hunting & Fishing Olub. Here we found a Black Tern and Green Heron. By noon we had reached Lake Jaekson, our lunch stop (65 car miles traveled). Carrie Holcomb and Norma Oates soon joined our group as observers sixteen and seventeen. After lunch we headed for Bryan Beach, south of Freeport, Here we found Piping and Thick-billed Plovers and Horned Larks. Times 2s00 p.m. Enroute to Surfside Beach (east of Freeport) we saw a Long-billed Curlew (uncommon summer resident). It was 4s00 p.m. by the time we reached the beach, where the group turned to such non-bIrd-watching activities as beaoheomblng, wading, and swimming. Our party (incl. Carl Aiken and the Klaisches) arrived in Houston, by 6s00 p.m. However, yours truly decided to do a little more birding on his own. Another two hours and I had added several species (incl. Wood Thrush at Murray's and Screech Owl at Hermann Park), bringing my day's list up to 62 species - 17 more than my previous highest July list. However, Arlie K. McKay of Cove, has listed as many as 73 species during this month - and without any companions. Total species, all parties; 65, Observerss Marv Clark. Hardin firaltr. JnVm rh.o-to- tshj-o nn«,« n -a
