This is the department devoted to reports from our readers. Any unusual local bird observation or, for that matter, news of out-of-town or out-of -State trips should be sent to your Editor for publication in the next issue of the Spoonbill. * # * Miss Erna E* Giesecke's Pine Siskins finally left for the far North after enjoying the benefits of her feeding s tand at 1509 Courtlandt here in Houston for the past Winter and most of this Springs Miss Giesecke saw them for the last time on May 25th. * # * Mrs. Minor Hurst saw a flight of some 75 to 100 Wood Ibises fly over her house (located just inside the northern city limits of Houston) on May 31st. They were heading hortheast. Mrs. Hurst and her neighbor, Mrs. L. W. King of 5217 Young also report the Baltimore Oriole nesting in their area, as well as the #ose-breasted Grosbeak at Resthaven Cemetery some 10 miles north of Houston off U.S# Highway 75, and also in the vicinity of West Road and U.S. 75. The Rose-breasted Grosbeak was last seen June lUth and the Baltimore Oriole, June 2Uth, at the latest report. * # * Anyone wishing to see a Golden Plover in full Summer plumage (noted by Mrs. Hurst, June 23rd) should go north along U.S. 75 to Steub^er Airline Road and watch the pastures in the vicinity for this crippled bird inamong the many nesting Killdeers. * * * A new Spoonbill colony on an island r.e^rMorgans Point was discovered on June 6th by Armand Yramategui andj^anklinSmith. Over 150 adult Spoonbills were observed over the island* It was e s t im-a I edgier e were 50 pairs nesting. Four kinds of herons were also found tobe nesang on the island, viz. 300 pairs of Louisiana Heronsj 125 pairs of Bl&ck Crov/red.Night Herons; 300 pairs of Snowy Egrets; and J 125 pairs of American Eferecs(aU figures are rough estimates)". Armand, who is S the Outdoor Nature Club's Conservation Committee Chairman, is now investigating > the possibility of making tbis area a refuge similar to the Vingt-un-Islands, i # * * Watch the CIXARINGHCO^fc for future developments concerning this important project. # * * »• Before bringing this department of the Spoonbill to a conclusion, here are a few reminders •••- The new year will need the means to carry onj if you have not don© eo^lease send #1.00 registration fee to Betty Crowley, Secretary-Treasurer. The f undsreceived the first year were spent for stationery, the Spoonbill plate which ,-cusee reproduced at the top of this issue, stamps, cards for r ecording names of members and dues paid, filing card box, and a scrap- book for keeping items of interest contributed by members such as articles, pictures, cartoons, etc*, and other supplies needed to carry on. There was left over in the treasury from last year 4>9.20 and to this has been added $12.50 this year. Funds for the printing of the Check-Lists were advanced by Joe Heiser md repayment for this advance has been made from the sales of the Check-Lists, i'o-date about 2/3 of this obligation has been paid. The Check-List was compiled and printed as a Group project last year and once the cost of printing is paid thru future sales will be a source of revenue for the Oroup. A full accounting :;T11 be made at the next Group meeting in September and we hope that every member VIJPL be present at that time. * # * * Send your field notes to Noel Pettingell to incorporate in the Spoonbill. # * -* Notify Darris Massingill regarding andy unusual species which other birders may be interested in seeing. Also, call her if you desire information on forthcoming field trips. Her phone number is FA-7766. * # -* Finally, keep in mind the next Business Meeting of the Ornithology Group in September (definite date to be announced later). Topping the agenda will be a review of our chief activities and accomplishments during the period following our organizational meeting on April 11, 1952* \/ M \/ tt £
