Transcript About the Ornithology Group The Ornithology Group (OG) is a member of the Outdoor Nature Club (ONC), a non-profit organization dedicated to greater knowledge about the environment and wildlife of the Upper Texas Coast. The OG is a club of individuals interested in all aspects of birding, including bird identification, listing bird sightings, competing in birding events and preserving bird habitat. Some members study bird behavior, biology, distribution and migration, while others just enjoy watching birds. The organization is designed to accommodate these diverse birding interests. Monthly meetings and field trips provide an opportunity to interact with and learn from experts in local and international birding. Contacts: Chair Skip Almoney 713-524-4285 Treasurer Patsy Lawrence 713-661-8954 Secretary Margret Simmons 713-776-2511 Clhouse David Sarkozi 713-520-5906 SB Editor M.P.

Monthly Field Trip: Glenn Olsen will lead the field trip February 15 to Brazos Bend State Park meeting at 8:00am in the parking lot of 40 Acre Lake. There will be two field trips in March to see the Attwater's Prairie- Chickens at the Texas City Nature Conservancy Preserve on March 25 and March 29. Those wishing to participate need to sign up early since space is limited to ten people on each trip. Quarterly Field Trips: Bill Saulmon reported that the January field trip to the Rio Grande Valley was very successful and was attended by 12 people. The guide was Brad McKinney of the World Birding Center and he has an excellent ear for the birds as well as extensive knowledge of their habits. The group saw the three target birds of Golden-crowned Warbler, Blue Mockingbird, & Greater Pewee as well as Tropical Kingbird, Northern Beardless-Tyrannulet, Green Kingfisher and many others. The next quarterly field trip is a joint trip with the ONC to Choke Canyon State Park on April 25-27 to be led by Bob Honig. It will be a study of not only birds but other wildlife as well. A block of rooms has been reserved at Nolan Ryan Bass Inn and a group of campsites has also been reserved. It will be limited to 20 people and a sign-up sheet is available. A summer field trip will be led by David & Cheryl Sarkozi to Costa Rica June 28 - July 5 at a cost of $1600. They will visit Arena! National Park, Monte Verde Reserve, Santa Elena National Park, Carara Biological Reserve and points in between. Contact Cheryl at cheryl@sarkozi.net with questions. Programs: The May program will be a dinner on May 5 at 7pm at the Bayland Community Center to celebrate the 50 anniversary of the Ornithology Group. We'll try to have as many of the founding and older members join us as possible. Patsy Lawrence is planning the evening and has set up several committees that need volunteers: host & hostess, decoration, heat the food, prepare the salad committees. She plans to hire someone to do the clean up. Select a committee and contact Patsy or plan to sign up at the March meeting. Environmental Issues: Mary Dodson reported that Metro is planning to have transportation hearings in locations all over Houston and people are encouraged to take part and let their ideas be heard. Mary provided copies of Jim Blackburn's December 2002 Coastal Update in which he summarizes the following: actions to try to protect freshwater inflows in Texas bays; funds intended to save wetlands being diverted for air pollution research to aid Houston industries; illegal discharge of dredge material into Aransas Bay; continuing opposition to the Bayport container port proposed by the Port of Houston Authority; good news about Formosa Plastics plan to achieve zero discharge into Lavaca Bay in 2003. He also provided a list of groups and their addresses in need of financial help in these battles. Continued on p. 4
