Transcript 2 VOLUME XVII, NO. 11 March, 1969 PUBLISHED BY THE ORNITHOLOGY GROUP, OUTDOOR NATURE CLUB, HOUSTON. TEXAS MINUTES OF THE REGULAR MEETING OF THE ORNITHOLOGY GROUP FEBRUARY 6, 1969 The February 6, I969, meeting of the Ornithology Group was called to order by Chairman, Wally Mebane. Avis Stobart, a new member, was introduced. Visitors who were introduced were: Adele LaCombe, Violet Nelson, and Mrs. Hardy, Dan's mother. The minutes were read and approved. Sarah Gordon gave the Treasurer's Report. The January 31, 1969, balance was $98.58. Harvey Patten reported on the last field trip to Sheldon Reservoir with a highlight of Hooded Mergansers. Melba Drake, Save the Spoonbill Committee, asked for a discussion of who would keep the bound volumes of the Spoonbill. A motion was made, seconded, and passed that we have a Librarian and Pat Sullivan volunteered to do the job of keeping these and any other books which the group might acquire by loan, gift, or purchase. Melba said that she thought that whoever was the mailer for the Spoonbill should be the one to collect and bind future issues. Pat Sullivan suggested that a letter be written to Mr. Emmott thanking him for the wonderful job of binding. There was a discussion of the budget and the cost of the Spoonbill. Suggestions on handling the problem were: cut the length, put a notice in the Spoonbill that contributions are needed, raise the dues, cut the summer issues, or find an angel to cut publishing costs. Pat Sullivan pointed out that the Spoonbill took all the money from dues and that nothing was budgeted for field trips and programs. A motion was made, seconded, and passed to pass the hat; this was done and $35-90 was collected. Marian Washburn, Program Chairman, announced that John Spinks, Southwest Field Representative of the National Audubon Society, would speak at the next meeting. There was a call for nominations from the floor for the officers other than Chairman, who was elected at the last meeting. There were none. Bill McClure moved that the nominations cease. This was seconded by Harvey Patten and the slate was elected by acclamation. Officers for the cosing year will be: Chairman, Wally Mebane; Vice-Chairman, John Tveten; Secretary, Katrina Ladwig; Treasurer, Sarah Gordon. Harvey Patten thanked the group for helping to publicize the first meeting of the Houston Audubon Society which had a good turn-out and over 100 new members joining. He also announced that he had received a letter from W. C. Royal of the Denver Biology Bureau who is doing a study of the Cattle Egret. They are interested in the dispersal of birds from the Waller Rookery and would like specific information from our group on roosts and rookeries of the Cattle Egret. Wally Mebane suggested that we might get the Chronicle to continue Louis Hofferbert and his column, Texas Notebook, by writing letters to that effect. The Outdoor Nature Club will host the San Antonio Audubon Society at the Little Thicket on April 12 and 13. There were current reports on the Evening Grosbeaks and the Purple Sandpiper. Marian Washburn introduced Professor Jed Ramsey who gave a very interesting program on the Kiwi. - - Respectfully submitted, Katrina Ladwig, Secretary.
