Transcript i t **************** * I HEARD A BIRD SING * VOLUME XVI, HO. 8 December, 1967 I heard a bird sing * In the dark of December. * A magical thing * And sweet to remember. * * "We are nearer to Spring * Than we were in September," * I heard a bird sing * In the dark of December. * * —Oliver Herford ***************:* PUBLISHED BY THE ORNITHOLOGY GROUP. OUTDOOR HATURE CLUB, HOUSTON. TEXAS MERRY CHRISTMAS - HAPPY NEW YEAR ********************************************************************************************* NOVEMBER FIELD TRIP TO BRAZORIA COUNTY by Pat Ridge Fourteen faithful followers of our feathered friends joined forces at 6:30 a.m. on November 26, for a day of bird-listing and bird study. The bird listing efforts were somewhat less than expected as we warmed up for the "big one" in December, it seeming that the birds failed to furnish their full cooperation, and a total of only 85 speeies was tallied. Under the highly capable leadership of Trevor Ben Feltner, however, the bird study efforts were excellent and many of the group, this writer included, had the opportunity to learn some new tricks of difficult identification. The trip began at Gulfgate Shopping Center and proceeded to the roadside park south of Alvin. The stop was rather non-productive until several Eastern Bluebirds, Pine Warblers and a Chipping Sparrow took pity on us and brightened a tree briefly just as we were ready to leave. The next stop at Lake Stubblefield and environs brought forth both Marsh Wrens, a Pileated Woodpecker and a Palm Warbler, the latter cornered for some few minutes for our benefit by Jerri Baker. After a lunch stop near Lake Jackson, where several ducks were spotted, the group continued on to Freeport where we were able to pick up several waders and water-birds, including a very obliging pair of Common Loons, "lifers" for a couple of us, always a guaranteed satisfactory conclusion to any trip. The excursion broke up reluctantly near dark. The following participated in the Field Trip: Trevor B. Feltner, Marie Feltner, Sue M. Buck, Louise Rogers, Jerri Baker, Larry Borella, Tommy Barnes, James Barnes, Julia and Ewell Bradley, Pat Ridge and daughter Ramona, Bud Anderson and David Marrack. BLIND SPOTS by John L. Tveten I want to add a belated second to the sighting last month (October 21) of the Violet- green Swallow by Haney Strickling and Hazel Hichols; although, I'm sure the detailed observation of these two needs no corroboration.
