Transcript Page 2 write Fred Webster, coordinator, at 4926 Stress Drive, Austin, TX 78731, or call 512/451-1669. PAST EVENTS OG field trip to the Cooling Ponds, February 24th, was frustrating to those attending, for the fog hampered viewing until about 10 oclock, and when it lifted, there were very few birds to be seen. David Dauphin said 20-25 Goldeneyes, including two males In spring plumage, were the best birds of the day, with Canvasbacks and Buffi eheads in good numbers. f$!?\S? Bird Research Group regular meeting, February 20th, was mainly organizational. They discussed features of the El Naranjo Christmas Count Circle and David Matson showed some of his slides of fancy Russian birds from his recent trip there. His best bird was a photographed adult male Montagu's Harrier 800 miles east of its known range. The following dates were established for the pelagic birding trips: March 15, April 5, and May 17. These trips will be aboard the New Buccaneer out of Galveston. The boat leaves the Party Boat dock at 7:30 a.m. and costs $20.00 per trip. If you need more information or would like to carpool from Houston call Colin Summerhayes at 977-9139. A reminder: don't forget the Fish-eating Bird Survey May 24-June 8. If you would like to participate call Fred Collins 526-7644 or 493-5409. Minutes of OG Meeting, March 6, 1980 David Dauphin opened the meeting and asked for announcements, which were made as fo11ows: 1) Our bank balance is $5002.00. Most of this money will go to pay for the check list. THE SPOONBILL is being mailed this month only to those who have paid their dues. 2) The new Check List had to go back to the artist for corrections. Hopefully it will be on sale at the next meeting. 3) Jerry Baker collected $25.22 in aluminum sale this month. 4) Linda Roach paintings will be on display at the Checkadee March 12. 5) HAS Research Group is having a pelagic trip out of Galveston, March 15. 6) Mayou Manor Association has asked us to leave the auditorium neat and clean with the chairs straight. Jack Gillette introduced Fred Collins, who gave a very Interesting program entitled "Tropical Birds of the UTC". Ellen Red, Secretary REQUEST FOR ASSISTANCE by Carol Meyer I wou Id I Ike to enlist the help of THE SPOONBILL readers in my current work with injuned and orphaned raptors. Each spring I handle many young birds which have no Injur ies, but are victims of miscellaneous troubles ranging from being abducted from nests to falling from felled trees. Many successful attempts have been made to place these nestlings into foster nests. I am, therefore, interested in locating suitable nests early so we have them available if nestlings of the proper age come to usj. Am mainly concerned at locating Screech owl and Barn owl nests in the Houston and surrounding area. Nestlings placed into nests must be watched carefully and chosen according to tight restrictions on their brood size, food availability and age correlation. Hopefully alI young of a chosen nest site will be banded to help determine the success, effect and possible disturbance of the nesting attempt. It is important to establish early the potential locations that may be suitable for such retntroductions. But this method of replacing young birds may prove to be superior to hand-rearing bacause of past imprinting problems. I can be reached after 6:30 p.m. in the evenings and on weekends at 461-3992 If anyone locates an active nest site or believes they may know of one. Caution must be the key as we do not want to disturb nesting until the correct s+age has been reached'. Observation is the best course, and should be done from a distance at first. If you suspect a nest call first, if we must investigate more closely; the judgement may be an important one.
