Transcript Continued from p. 2 Non-OG Events Mary also provided information from the League of Conservation Voters website about Bush's record on the environment with dates of the latest rollbacks of our environmental protections. There was also a scorecard for elected officials for the 107* Congress. The plans for the Katy corridor expansion continue to be a concern. City Council is considering an extension of Hwy-90 through Hermann Brown Park as well as other extensions through Hermann Park. Skip encouraged everyone to speak up and act on these environmental issues. Other announcements: David Sarkozi announced that the TOS convention in Port Lavaca April 24-27 will celebrate the TOS 50* anniversary and Houston OG created the original TOS, with the same person as the head of both organizations. Sumita Prased invited people to sign up for bird-banding workshops to be offered by the Gulf Coast Bird Observatory to train people to band birds on the upper Texas coast. Pat Pease reminded everyone that it's time to renew OG/ONC memberships - only one more Spoonbill will be sent to those who have not renewed. Skip mentioned that referrals need to be noted on membership forms in order to get credit in the current membership drive. Dick Whanger will accept entries in the ONC photo contest until the day they are judged on February 20. Program: Photographing Birds in your Backyard by Kathy Adams Clark Kathy Adams Clark showed a wide variety of slides of birds she had photographed, in her own backyard and those of others. She emphasized providing food, water and shelter to attract the birds to a habitat. Then she gave many tips en how to produce better pictures of the birds by placing feeders and perches in ideal conditions and using flashes to create ideal lighting on the birds. She gave suggestions for building a backyard photo blind and setting up a camera with a cable release to allow tripping the shutter from a remote location. Her talk gave many detailed instructions for camera settings to produce better bird pictures. I think we all realized that her wildlife photography skills have taken years to learn and taking excellent pictures of birds is a honed craft.
