Transcript r gPOCM^BIIX Published by the Ornithology Group, Outdoor Nature Club Houston, Texas, lobby Price, Editor; Ellen Red, Asst. Editor VOLUME XXXVIII, No. 2 February, 1989 QettJihfi Evchfo Thursday, Mar. 2: Ornithology Group meeting at Bayou Manor, 4141 S. Braeswood, at 7:30 p.m. Don Richardson will present the program: "Spring Migrants Other Than Warblers." Friday, Mar. 3: Deadline for Spoonbill material and for Clearing House reports. Thursday, Mar. 9: Outdoor Nature Club meeting at the Houston Arboretum at 7:30 p.m. Doug Williams, a staff member of the Arboretum, will present a program on wildflowers. Saturday, Mar. 18: Ornithology Group field trip to Jones Forest and nearby areas. The leader is Steve Gast. Meet at 8:00 a.m. Steve will do some advance work and try to locate a Hairy Woodpecker. If he is successful, and if the bird stays where he tells it to, we may see all eight local woodpeckers on that day. Bring lunch and plan on spending all day. We'll spend time near Stubblefield Lake and Lake Conroe, and in the afternoon we'll visit Houston Audubon's Damuth Sanctuary. To get to the forest exit 1-45 nine miles north of Spring Creek (the Harris-Montgomery County line). Go west on FM 1499 for 2.4 miles and turn left into a dirt road that parallels the forest on the west side. We'll meet at the wide spot about 200 yards from the highway. For more information call Don and Lee Richardson at 661-1365. AUCTION! AUCTION! Two beautiful prints will be auctioned at the March 2nd meeting. These prints were bought by T. Paul Jones years ago when they were auctioned for the benefit of the OG. Margaret Jones has donated them to be auctioned again for the OG. One is The Immature Tundra Peregrine by John Langford, and the other The Red-tailed Hawk, by Charles Frace' Both are signed and numbered. Come and make your bids! HOUSTON CHRISTMAS BIRD COUNT - 1988 by P. D. Hulce The 1988 Houston Christmas Bird Count was characterized by unseasonably nice weather. A total of 62 observers turned out to enjoy the sunshine and participate in the oldest Christmas count in the area. 1988 was the 75th anniversary of the first Houston count in 1913. Held intermittently until 1940, the 1988 count was the 49th consecutive count and the 55th count in all. In a year marked by drought, and a possible preview of the "greenhouse effect," the species total for the Houston count was 163, only down one from the 1987 total. The total number of individual birds seen, however, 773,579, was the fourth highest total ever for the count. The best birds of the count were probably the 12 Brown Pelicans, seen for only the third time since 1956. One bird was seen on the 1982 count, and eight birds were seen in 1965. Let's hope that this is continuing evidence of the reestablishment of this bird on the UTC. Other good birds seen on the count included Northern (Bullock's) Oriole, Yellow-throated Warbler, American Oystercatcher, Black Duck, Greater Scaup and Harris' Sparrow. 1988 also marked a break in count coverage of the H L & P Cooling Ponds. For whatever reason, H L & P refused to allow even one person one hour of observation time, at any time during the day. Perhaps next year we can get permission. The compilers would like to thank our great area leaders, who get the people out in the field, rain or shine, and everyone who helped. We hope to see you all again next year. PRINTING ERROR FOUND by Randy Finkston Spoonbill readers who own the book Hawks in Flight, by Dunne, Sibley and Sutton, will be interested to know that there is a printing error in the captions on page 80. They should be corrected so that "C" is the Prairie Falcon, "D" the Gyrfalcon and "E" the Peregrine. This was first noticed by Harry Goldstein of Philadelphia and John Stellwagon of Goshen, N.Y.
