Transcript c Volume VII Bo. 3 July 1958 ************ * Is it a crane? Is it * * * * a heron? *•***••** Is it an ibis?* *Wellman, in "Gentlemen of the jury" makes this •rather apt observation: * "The male crane and some other birds do a •weird dance when they want to impress the laddies of their affectione, and go through tome •other strange antics, and a juror is led at •times to believe that some of the lawyers have •read about it and are trying to do the same." A*********************** PUBLISHED BY THE ORNITHOLOGY GROUP, OUTDOOR NATURE CLUB, HOUSTON, TXXAS FORTHCOMING ACTIVITIES July 19 Ornithology Group field Trip SATURDAY, July 19, to Galveston. Meet at THORNHILL'S CAFETERIA off the Gulf Freeway (Xxit 8 at Woodridge) at IsOO p.m. and at Humble Station at Broadway and 6lst street in GALVESTON at 2:00 p.m. This will be an excellent opportunity for beginning birders to study shore and water birds. Later there will be a picnic supper on the beach. Bring your swim suit. Some of our group have been seeing migratory birds; so this may prove to be a very exciting trip. DON'T FORGET: Thornhill's Cafeteria off Freeway at 1:00 p.m. OS Humble Sation at Broadway and 6lst in Galveston at 2:00 Saturday, July 19 * * * • August l6 Ornithology Group Field Trip to FREEPORT. We will meet at 7:30 a.m. all bright-eyed and bushy tailed in the Weingarten parking lot on Almeda at Cleburne. We will eat lunch (a sort of continuation of those frequent mid-morning forays into the trunk of the car for a cup of coffee and just half a sandwich.') between noon and 1:00 p.m. at Lake Jackson Park; so you join us there if you can't make it earlier. Clayton Gilman has been studying the area; and, in a road the group has not been on before, ha* seen nestlings of many species. ********************* ORNITHOLOGY GROUP REPORTS: 0. G. FEBLD TRIP TO DICKINSON REPORTED BY JERRY STRICKLING June 8, I958 Fifteen members of the ornithology group met at the Thornhill Cafeteria on the Gulf Freeway and under the leadership of Conrad Deats went to the home of Mr. and Mrs. Jack Hughes, located on Dickinson Bayou. The house is located on the bayou and is surrounded by oak, pecan, and haekberry trees and is an ideal birding spot. Numerous summer residents were seen and heard, including families of Carolina wrens, red-bellied woodpeckers, cardinals and mockingbirds. Considerable time was spent listening to the bird songs and valuable experience was gained in sound identification . Mr. and Hrs. Hughes were charming hosts and invited the group to come back as individuals or as the 0. G. Conrad Deats then led the group south of Dickinson to the reservoir area where waders and shore birds were studied. Two king rails were flushed, one of which was actually touched by Ronald Fowler before he fled through the grass. This points up how difficult this species is to flush, and emphasises why so many more are heard than are seen. A casual summer resident, the marsh hawk (5SR) was seen on three occasions and finally Jay Atlas pointed him out to the entire group near League City.
