The computer donated by Exxon last year, which we use to produce mailing labels, is failing and needs to be replaced. If you know of a computer about to be replaced in your workplace or if you have a computer that you are replacing and may wish to donate to the OG, please contact Bob Honig at 665-6963. ___THE FOLLOWING LETTER WAS RECEIVED RECENTLY FROM OG MEMBER, MIKE GREMLLLION: Tm a current OG member on temporary leave in Virginia since last March...about a month ago I went on a pelagic birding trip out of Virginia Beach led by a local birder, Ken Bass. During the slow part of the trip, somewhere between laughing Gulls and Wilson's Storm Petrels, Ken mentioned that he had seen an issue of The Spoonbill and was very impressed with it. He said, 'It's one of the finest birding newsletters around.' He was particularly impressed with the Clearing House thinking that it provides invaluable information for local or visiting birders about what has been seen, and where. 'It's like having a print-out of a month's worth of bird alert tape,' was the way he said it. I was so pleased to hear that and thought you [all] should know about it..." THE SECOND ANNUAL TEXAS WILDLIFE REHABILITATION COALITION BENEFIT DINNER AND AUCTION, November 7: Cruise Galveston Bay with experienced birding guide, David Dauphin, then dine on board ship as it continues up the Houston Ship Channel. Cost is $50.00 per person and reservations are needed. Call Kathy Pyne at 621-8143 or the TWRC Animal Shelter at 468-TWRC for details. .™_OG BOLIVAR FLATS FIELD TRIP REPORT. About 15 OGers and two birders from Illinois met at Bolivar Flats for a great day of birding. At the new Bolivar Flats Shorebird Sanctuary we studied five species of plover, the confusing Royal, Common, Caspian and Forster's Terns. Diligent searching by a few failed to turn up a single Franklin's Gull, though over 30 American Oystercatchers were counted. A few Red Knots and Dunlins added to our morning of birding. Before leaving the Flats we managed close up looks at both Seaside and Sharp-tailed Sparrows and a few Common Yellowthroats. Enroute to High Island we enjoyed a Magnificent Frigatebird and Osprey. At High Island the woods were alive with vireos (four species), warblers (ten species) and tanagers (two species). We had numerous Magnolia Warblers and American Redstarts. Other warblers included Tennessee, Hooded, Black and White, Wilson's, Parula, and even a Lawrence's, the rare hybrid of the Blue-winged and Golden-winged Warbler. Also observed: Ovenbird and Northern Waterthrush. Dave Bradford .THE U.S. FISH AND WILDLIFE SERVICE has decided to accept a petition to list the southwestern Willow Flycatcher under the Endangered Species Act. The Interior Department will now conduct a review of the status of the southwestern Willow Flycatcher. The petition presented documentation of habitat loss and population declines and presented information on the threat of these trends continuing. The southwestern Willow Flycatcher occurs in riparian habitats, nesting in willows or similar dense vegetation found along streams. The species' range includes southern California, southern Nevada, southern Utah, Arizona, New Mexico and far western Texas. It may also occur in the extreme southwest corner of Colorado. Factors cited by the petitioners as contributing to loss and modification of habitat included impoundment and diversion of streams and rivers, river channelization, livestock grazing, brood parasitism by Brown-headed Cowbirds, and displacement of native riparian vegetation by the non-native tamarisk, or saltcedar. FWS News Release, Sept 4,1992 THE NORTHERN APLOMADO FALCON ONCE EXISTED AS AN IMPORTANT and conspicuous part of the desert grassland communities in the southwestern United States and northern Mexico. By the 1950's, this colorful falcon species disappeared from the United States and began to decline in parts of Mexico. Its decline was primarily due to deterioration of habitat from agriculture, cwergrazing and pesticide contamination. Efforts are now underway to restore the falcon through reintroduction to its unoccupied former range in the United States by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS), The Peregrine Fund, State wildlife agencies, Mexico and interested conservationists.
