Transcript Volume XXVI, No. 2 June, 1977 PUBLISHED BY THE ORNITHOLOGY GROUP, OUTDOOR NATURE CLUB, HOUSTON, TEXAS THIS IS RED MARK DAY! Please check your address label on the back page. If there Is a red mark beside your name we have not received your dues, and this will be your last SPOONBILL. We hope you have Just forgotten, and will send your check today to Mrs. J.M. Gillette, 5027 Longmont, Houston, Texas 77056. Remember, OG dues are $2.00 Cplus $5.00 ONC dues), or non-member subscription to SPOONBILL Is $3.00. PLACES TO GO Since there will be no field trips or meetings during the summer, you are on your own when birding. Ted Eubanks, Jr. suggests checking for nesting warblers In Bear Creek Park (add Spring Creek Pa k, Duessen, Memorial, Isenhower Parks to that, but week-ends might be frustrating —Ed.). A pleasant early morning walk might be the Sweet leaf Nature Trail In Jones State Forest where the Kentucky and Swalnson's Warblers, among others, can be heard. If you go to the Little Thicket Nature Sanctuary be sure to report your birds seen (especially nesting activity) to Alfred Chandler, 1200 Bettes, Conroe, Texas 773WV- Regretfully, we have another birding spot not to go. Please remove the Henslow Sparrow field from your list. Santa Fe has refused our request for permission to have a census of the Henslow Sparrows on their property, as well as denying permission for anyone to enter that area. Anyone trespassing on Santa Fe property will be liable to prosecution, and the personnel at this area have been Instructed to see that no unauthorized person enters. This Henslow Sparrow flock Is so unique, has been the subject of study for several years, we are Indeed sad to hear this ruling. At least we can take heart that a lack of birding "good manners" Cof which we have heard a good deal lately) has not caused this, but seems to be a decision of the legal department of Santa Fe. Last month we asked you to remove the Dow Wilderness Trail from your list, this time the Henslow field, and we wonder what will come next. With development spreading everywhere, especially noticeable in West Harris County, and Galveston Island, the following Item should be of special.Interest, A PLAN TO SAVE WATERFOWL HABITAT We know that mil I Ions of dollars have been spent In the past forty years In preserving wetlands environments In Canada and the northern edges of the United States. Stan Slaten, In the Houston Post, May 29, 1977, Informs us that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has a new program dedicated to insuring that "the wetlands along the Texas Coast don't shrink any more than they already have, and If It comes to a point of a piece of land being destroyed—duck-wlse~lt will be purchased by FWS. With almost two-tMrds of the entire Central Flyway's wintering waterfowl population Inhabiting the Texas Coast, this Is a very important undertaking." W.0. Nelson, director of the FWS, stressed at a recent meeting that they were not getting into the real-estate business, and would buy wetlands Con a priority basis) only as a last resort to keep It from being developed. According to Slaten, "By saving the wetlands for waterfowl, fishermen benefit because the nursery grounds for shrimp, redflsh and other gameflsh, not to mention the fact that keeping the marshes as they are cuts down on the possibility of pollutton that-would further add to the deterioration of the bays." And birders benefit because, according to Joe Lagow, longtime conservationist and water- fowler, "We only need the land for the ducks and geese about six months out of the year, the rest of the time. Its open for birders to enjoy It all alone." Several times In the past, THE SPOONBILL has urged birders to purchase "Duck Stamps". As a group, waterfowl hunters have been good friends to birders, for they have been
