Texas FORTHCOMING ACTIVITIES August 19 - Sunday Field Trip to the Freeport Area. Bring picnic lunch and meet at 8:00 a.m. on the parking let of Weingarten's Store, 4100 Almeda. Field Trip Chairman, C. B. Gilman, has arranged for the group to explore some new birding spots in the Freeport area. There will also be an opportunity fer beach-combing or surf-bathing on Fulton Beach later during the afternoon. Sept. 1-2-3 Labor Day Trip to the Valley to visit the Laguna Atascosa Wildlife Refuge (located in Cameron County about 80 miles north east of Harlingen) and the Santa Ana Wildlife Refuge located about 34 miles southwest of Harlingen on the Rie Grande River. Mr. Milton C. Chandler (T.O.S. member who lives at San Benito) writes as fellows: "A jacana has been seen in the Santa Ana this spring and summer, there are black-bellied tree ducks up there - lately a pair with ten ducklings, also chacalacas, pauraque, red-billed pigeons, white fronted dove, possibly the Alta Mira and Audubon orioles, green jay, groove billed ani, and a possibility of seeing the rose-throated becard." For more information on this trip contact - C. B. Gilman, MI 9-7716, or Jimmy Murray, UN 1-8837. (Call either number after 6 p.m.) Fall Migration Study Galveston Island has been selected by the Ornithology Group for a fall migration study. This area was chosen because ef its accessibility and the fact that more species of shore and water birds can be found close-by in the ponds and marshes on the Western half of the island, and land birds can be found in the fields and wooded sections of this area. On the Eastern portion ef the island land birds can be seen in the city parks and water birds on the jetties and along the beach. A count will be made on the island each week-end (either Saturday or Sunday) and all are invited to participate in as many trips as possible. Besides being much fun, these trips will afford an excellent opportunity for the inexperienced birder to become better acquainted with the good birding spots in Galveston and to learn to recognize the birds found there. The weekly trips will be divided as fellews:- Vic Emanuel and Carl Aiken will be responsible for the count made the first week-end of each month Carrie Holcomb will take the second week-end Leota Stilwell - the third week-end, and Mrs. Jerry Baker - the fourth week-end The above members will either lead a trip or secure a substitute leader for the particular week-end assigned to them during the migration period which extends through November 30th. For more detailed information en this project - call one ef the names listed above. Anyone birding en Galveston Island, whether a member of one ef tho official weekly parties or not, is requested to send a list ef birds, showing the estimated number of each species observed (whether migrants or residents) to the SPOONBILL editor. (NOTE:- The .editor would also like to have check-lists from other areas?)
