Transcript gPOOiXBIIX Published by the Ornithology Group, Outdoor Nature Club Houston, Texas, Libby Price, Editor; Ellen Red, Asst. Editor VOLUME XXXIX, No. 5 May, 1990 Si. EDITORIAL Having announced my retirement some months ago, I thought I would slink out quietly at the beginning of the summer break, but on second thoughts I feel like indulging myself in my first, last and only editorial, because after ten years in the group and three as Spoonbill Editor, I have a couple of ideas to express. No one despises make-work more than I, or cares less to be in a group that tries by this means to give people a feeling of importance, but there is in every group, no matter how loose it hangs, an irreducible minimum of organizational work. To pile all of it on a few officers and not give them enough back-up is a sure way to burn out those who would otherwise do more than the average, and make belonging to the group less than satisfying. Ironically, the very reasons most people join, to get to know other birders, learn more about birds and where to go see them are best accomplished by volunteering to get involved, yet volunteering doesn't seem to be big on most birders' lists* Some people say old members aren't friendly. You'd be amazed at how friendly people can be if you offer to give them a hand! Simple things like helping with phone calls—a big part of officers' jobs—can give them a lift. Consider putting yourself on a list to do phoning, or to receive calls from people reserving places on a field trip. Would you run an errand on occasion if asked? Collect aluminum at a meeting the regular collector must miss ? Have you written up anything for The Spoonbill? Many hands make light work, so how about calling the Chairman to let him know you want to help, not just be a passive member? Richard Uzar (527-0454) has an answering machine so it shouldn't take but one call to say you can give limited time, even if you aren't prepared to be an officer. My next thought is global. Whatever we do for endangered species and the environment will not be enough if the world population continues increasing at the present rate. Write your U.S. Representative today to help pass HR 4075, the International Voluntary Family Planning Assistance Act of 1990, to "significantly increase funding for invest ments in international family planning information, contraceptive research, and services to ensure universal access to effective modern contraception." We could not make a national investment that would do more for our future and our children's and grand- childrens'. Don't just nod; DO IT! Thank you all for your support these last three years, especially those who have contributed articles. As for the Spoonbill staff, I could not have wished for a better group to work with. You have all done a terrific job. Thank you Ellen Red, Connie Clark, Peggy Milstead and Connie Schimbor for helping to produce all those issues. Thank you Yetta Chapman for filling in when needed. Finally the CH Editors, Lynne Aldrich and Peter Gottschling, Andrew and Rene Franks, and Wally Gardner: we all appreciate your hard work and dedication getting the CH compiled and delivered to me on time month after month. It's been a great experience that I put behind me with a good deal of regret and some relief. Good birding, everyone. QiMhri^ EVrttJU Friday-Sunday, June 1-3: Our June field trip will be a weekend affair to Kickapoo Caverns State Park and vicinity, north of Bracketville in Kenney County, where we will look for breeding birds of western affinities. Gray and Black-capped Vireos, among many other species, are nesters in the park. Kelly Bryan, the park manager and an accomplished field ornithologist, has agreed to lead our. Saturday field trip in the park. This trip will start early Saturday morning (time to be advised), so a Friday night arrival in the Bracketville area is nearly a must. His scedule permitting, Kelly said he would also introduce us to a significantly different bird habitat at lower altitudes near Bracketville on Sunday. The OG will provide supplemental leadership if required. Although Bracketville is about seven hours drive (about 320 miles) from Houston, this trip offers a rare opportunity to visit this park, which
