Transcript L Volume XVIII, Ho. 12 April, 1970 GOOD BIRDING, EVERYONE!!!I PUBLISHED BY THE ORNITHOLOGY GROUP, OUTDOOR NATURE CLUB, HOUSTON, TEXAS GIFT! IH ARMAND.' S MEMORY by Bessie G. Cornelius In the February issue I told about finding a number of rare early editions of "Bird Lore", starting with Number 1, Volume I, dated 1899, and proceeding through the year 1913. and that shortly before his death Armand Yramategui had expressed a desire to have these volumes for the Museum of Natural Science in Houston. Armand's wish has now become a reality, I am happy to announce! Mr. and Mrs, Cleve Baehman of Beaumont, who knew and esteem-.. Armand's work, have purchased these costly volumes and are presenting them to the Museum in honor and memory of Armand, Mr, Baehman is an outstanding attorney in Beaumont and Mrs, Baehman is a well-known conservationist throughout the State and among other offices, is past secretary of TOS, on the Board of Directors of Texas Nature Conservancy and on the Board of Beautify Texas, She has worked with Armand on numerous occasions on conservation matters. These volumes will constitute a worthy asset to the Museum's library and this generous gift is certainly a noble gesture on the part of Mr. and Mrs, Baehman. GOOD NEWS!II by Joe M. Heiser, Jr. On a quick cheek-up yesterday, March 27, Joe Farrell and I repeated our discovery of early Spring, 1969- a Black Vulture nesting in the Little Thicket Nature Sanctuary. Madame "V" left her two handsomely marked eggs uncovered and rested on a branch nearby for the second or two it took for us to make the observation and move quickly and quietly from the area. Last years* nesting was a complete success, with two well-feathered chicks ready to leave the nest soon after our final look-in, A Red-shouldered Hawk nest in a tree top near "the Swamp" produced at least two young graduates, as viewed with field glasses. This year we have seen no signs of life around the hawk nest, whieh nevertheless appears to have been enlarged. My records show that in several years of the early 1950's at least two families of Brown-headed and one of White-breasted Nuthatches were raised within Little Thicket Boundaries. In repeated searches, Farrell and I found only one family of Brown-heads last year. So far this year, neither sight nor sound of Nuthatches recorded on several careful quests. Have others noted the apparent decrease in abundance of the Carolina Wren? And of the box turtle, the cottontail rabbit, the horned lizard, and snakes and reptiles in general? Disturbing thought: Of what use are organizations (under any name), bigger "big days" afield, and fatter books listing bird counters, without relevant statistics, broad planning, and effective action to meet emergencies which are the special responsibilities of ornithological people, both professional and amateur especially on the local level. BELLAIRE HIGHLIGHTS by Dave Marrack My daughter and I were startled by the call of a Chuch-Wills-Widow at sundown on the 22nd of March, Clearly spring was with us, I regard it and the swifts as the real harbinger of spring on the (Bulf Coast. Martins ans Swallows seem to come almost too early when harsh weather may still occur. Mary and I had a wonderful view of our bird on the back gate post. We crawled to within 12 feet of it. I had not previously appreciated the series of short grunt-
