Birdwise, our area is one of America's richest. Add to this the fact that Houston is the South1 s largest citjy and it isn't hard to see why wefve got to measure up to what is expected of us by the rest of the State's and Nationfs birders. A great deal has been accomplished since we organized the Ornithology Group of the Outdoor Nature Club some fifteen months ago, but more remains to be done. Our horizons are ever-widening, our activities continually expanding* At the last Group meeting on May 13, 1953 certain projects were outlined for the coming year and they need energetic birders to carry them through* Can you help? Everyone can contribute to a successful year by taking part i^ the Croup activities, mm We want to thank those who helped make the Nesting Census at the Little Thicket Sanctuary a success and, at the same time, remind those who were not on this particular undertaking that there are other projects in the planning stage yet to be completed. Here are the projects outlined at our lsa$t meeting and which we hope to tackle this year: — (1). Organize Beginner's Bird Study Classes and Field Trips; — (2)t Sponsor Junior Audubon Clubs (Teachers, please note); — ^/TUkJS (3). Make an annual Nesting Census at the Little Thicket Nature Sanctuary/* •- (10 • J^^f^o Cooperate with the Conservation Coiranittee and promote vigorous conservation visits **6 measures to protect existing Spoonbills and Prairie Chickens in our regionj — tte&wi {$)* Make a Harris pounty map pin-pointing locales of various bird species through- ±T*t\)$oc~ out our areaf *-<^**<6).
