Transcript About the Ornithology Group The Ornithology Group (OG) is a division 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.

Learning Comer: Fred Collins gave a brief account of the splitting of Cackling Goose from Canada Goose. Both species have many subspecies, making ID difficult unless one sees the bill, which is more sloping and larger on the Canada Goose. Though most Canada Geese are larger than Cackling, one cannot always go by this as size varies considerably. Cackling are more common than Canada in west Harris County. Winter numbers of geese in our part of the state are dropping because of loss of rice farming lands. 2. Welcome: With a Ho Ho Ho, Chairman Michael Williams opened the meeting at 7:15. 3. Bird Sightings: Fox Sparrow, Cackling Goose, Cave Swallows, Great Kiskadee, White-tailed Hawk, Red Phalarope, Pintail, Northern Shoveler, Blue-Winged Teal, Redhead, Ring- necked Ducks, Red-tailed Hawk with squirrel in mouth, Red- shouldered and Cooper's Hawks, Osprey with a fish, Ruby- crowned and Golden-crowned Kinglets, Blue-headed Vireo, Orange-crowned Warbler. 4. Minutes: Minutes of the November meeting were approved. 5. Membership: Margaret asked all to please sign in and stated that dues can be paid now. 6. Texas eBird Announcement: Robin Leonard is now at the helm of Texas eBird and asked all to please send rare sightings and stories to her and she will put these in The Spoonbill, Any images will be accepted. 7. Newsletter: Michael asked for submissions to The Spoonbill by December 10th. We now have new printer and mailer for The Spoonbill and expect to benefit from more efficient handling. 8. Field Trips: The OG trip to Sheldon Lake was a great success with great views of Le Conte's Sparrows. The quarterly trip in January will be to NE Texas; there are a few openings left. The SE Arizona trip in June is filled, with a waiting list. David Sarkozi needs volunteers for Houston Christmas Bird Count, especially for the San Jacinto monument area. Adam Wood will lead the Nelson's Farm area of the Katy Prairie CBC, and needs volunteers. Skip Almoney reported the trip to Hermann Park was well attended and mosquitoes were out in force. The next midweek trip is to Edith Moore Sanctuary. Skip also asked for any old Spoonbills (50's & up) as he is compiling an archive. Volunteers are needed for FeatherFest, March 30 - April 1; Kevin Karlson will be back. 9. Budget: Jim Winn reported $7,068 in the bank. He also had handouts on "How to Preserve Birds and Wildlife for Future Generations." This will help each of us to be participants in helping not only our State Parks but also surrounding parks. He urged all of us to be more active in contacting our state representatives about this very grave matter. His excellent presentation will be of great use. 10. Speaker: Fred Collins, creator and director of Kleb Woods Nature Preserve in Northwest Harris County, is well known throughout the area for his birding expertise and the many positions he has held. His talk, "Ivory-billed Woodpeckers in Texas - Fact or Fiction," was most informative and convinced us it may be Fact. In the 1970's when he began studying the Big Thicket area he was going on information from James T. Tanner's book, 'The Ivory-billed Woodpecker." Tanner was the last to take photos of this bird. Recent tantalizing but inconclusive reports give hope that Ivory-bills may be found in Texas, Arkansas, Mississippi, and Florida. Cornell Lab of Ornithology, the Nature Conservancy, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service are backing extensive searches. Fred believes the bird will be found in Texas. 11. Meeting adjourned at 8:45 pm. — Shirley Mondshine
