Save the date! LEARNING CORNER: David Merrick will review ducks. Bring your field guides. Chairman's Message David Sarkozi Recently two events got me thinking about birding inside Houston. About a month ago. I was looking out my window when a Peregrine Falcon flew by low and close. If I had a beach house on the Bolivar Peninsula that wouldn't be so weird but I live so close to downtown that I got a sore neck looking up at the buildings of downtown trying to find the roost of that falcon over the next week. I also got a telephone call from a thirty-year member ofthe OG. We talked at length about some ofthe birding spots that used to be major destinations for the OG many years ago. Many of these locations are still just as good I'll bet, as they were thirty years ago. Writing this reminds me of another experience related to me by an OG member. He told me of birding at Russ Pittman Park in Bellaire for lunch during spring migration. He said often he would only have seven species of warblers, but a Hooded Warbler for lunch was a pretty good lunch break. I couldn't agree more. Its time to rediscover some of our urban birding spots. Let's explore our neighborhoods and find out what birds are here in the city with us. Let's report those good spots here in The Spoonbill. We can't always take the whole day to go birding sixty or more miles away. Sometimes, we can only get away for part of a day, maybe only two or three hours. Wouldn't it be great to have a list of locations to spend them at that were only few minutes away? So I challenge the OG to create an Urban Birding series of articles here in the pages of The Spoonbill. Don't forget that the Houston Christmas Bird Count is coming up December 18*, 1999. Please plan to attend. We've been barely breaking 150 species during that last decade, but that count circle could certainly get more species, we just need more eyes (and ears) in the field. Please plan to attend and contact P.D. Hulce.
