HOUSTON, Tex., June 14.-A determined group of 58 birders in some 21 parties defied wind and rain last May 2 in order to hang up a new local record of 250 species recorded in a single day. This was 9 more than last year's record of 221 species, 2 more than the Lower Rio Grande Valley1s 228 set on April 25 this year (by 31 observers in 11 parties), and A more than the Delaware Valley's 226 species on May 16 (by 61 observers in 14 parties). Last year the Upper Gulf Coast Area finished third in the Nation, topped by the Rio Grande!s all-time record count of 244 species and the D.V.O.C.'s list of 230. Next year the Upper Gulf Coast Area will try to make it two in a row by enlisting the aid of an even greater 'Army of Bird Watchers11. Their Goal: 240 species (plus) in !'551 REPORT ON THE LITTLE THICKET NATURE BANCTUAR3C NESTING CEIJ5US" The O.G. members congregated at the Sanctuary Saturday afternoon, May 29. At nightfall, a campfire was built, and the group had an enjoyable time chatting and admiring the clear, star-studded sky. Two shooting stars were observed. Bedtime was 9530 PM and alarm clocks were set for 4:30 AM. The next morning, territories were assigned and all departed from camp at 5:30 AM and returned at 11 AM to rest or return home. But, we were not without excitement. During the night a Whip-poor~ will was heard. As the song was heard by a majority of the group, it caused quite a debate as to whether one would be with us this late in the year. One party remarked that the song was the same as on the record. After further investigation'that is exactly what it turned out to be. Unbeknownst to the group, two members had a phonograph a ■ short distance awa.y and v/ere playing a recording of "Bird Songs" . This' was very disappointing as to some this bird would have been a "lifer"• The thirteen observers recorded some 45 (of known) breeding-species- 5 more than last year. For further details see the June Supplement.^ June 27, Sunday 5 PM, O.G. Field Trip, Galveston Island. Meet at Humble filling station, Broadway and 69th Street. This is an excellent opportunity to study the summer residents of Galveston Island, and will provide ample time to cover our usual haunts in the cool of the evening. July 1, Thursday 8 PM, O.G Meeting, 5815 Schuler. The O.Gf will have their monthly meetings at Mr. Leonard McWhirterfs place of business one block north of the 5800 block of Washington Ave. The Photography Group has found this the ideal place to meet and we hope the Ornithology Group members will find it convenient also.
