Transcript Page 2 All motions having been disposed of, Mr. Armand Yramategui introduced Mr, Martin Kroesohe of the Photography Group who presented some movies that he had made. There were highlights from some of the Naturs Club's field trips, including trips to the state park at Gonzales, to Box Canyon near Austin, and to the' Aransas Wildlife Refuge. He also showed films made in Florida. The scenes made in the swamps were of especial Interest and those of the water skiers at Cypress Gardens were thrilling indeed. Our sincere thanks go to Mr. Kroesohe. February 23 - Field Trip to Western Harris County - (Miss Thelma Smith) As has become customary, gray skies and threatening rain greeted the 0. G.'s as they gathered at 8:30 a.m. Sunday, February 23, at Westheimer and Post Oak for the Cinco Ranch - Sandhill Crane trip. The drive to the ranch produced only the usual roadside birds but the last two cars of the five ear procession stopped along the entrance road to Clnoo, and the occupants saw one of the high-lights of the day, a Ferruginous Hawk (dark phase). Birding at the ranch was good despite the mud under foot and the following speoies were seen: Anhinga, Redwing Blackbird, Common Bluebird, Cardinal, Carolina Chickadee, American Coot, Mourning Dove, Mallard, Yellow- shafted Flicker, Blue-gray Gnateateher, American Goldfinch, Pied-billed Grebe, Belted Kingfisher, Ruby-crowned Kinglet, Eastern Meadowlark, Mockingbird, Barred Owl, Eastern Phoebe, Robin, Spotted Sandpiper, Yellow- bellied Sapsueker, Field, Harris', Vesper, White-erowned and White-throated Sparrows, Brown Thrasher, Hermit Thrush, Tufted Titmouse, Myrtle and Orange- crowned Warblers, Downy and Red-bellied Woodpeckers, and Carolina Wren. After lunch the three men drivers fortunately deferred to the wishes of the two women drivers who wanted to stay off muddy roads, and all proceeded west on Route 1093. There, scattered through several fields and in the air, approximately 300 Sandhill Cranes were sighted. Those on the ground were very close to the road, enabling all to see them clearly. In several of the groups, a few were performing their courtship dance. Turning north on Farm Road 1463 to the Katy Road, many Snow, Blue, and White-fronted Geese were observed, some at very close range. In the ponds along this route, Baldpate, Mallard, Pintail, and Lesser Scaup were seen. At Katy, the group drove north on the Katy-Hookley Road, then west on House-Hall, adding Shoveler, Green-winged Teal, and Dowitchers to the list. The group then broke up with three cars returning to the city while the diehards turned back to Katy-Hookley Road and birded north. They were rewarded with three Caraoaras and two CATTLE EGRETS just north of the Cypress bridge. One of the Cattle Egrets was first seen following a black steer in typical Cattle Egret style while off in another part of the field some Common Egrets were; clustered. All flew as we approached and the black feet and thicker neck of the Cattle Egret were clearly observed. From across the road a second Cattle Egret flew up and joined the first in flight. Members making the trip were: Carrie Holcomb, Norma Oates, Leota Stilwell, Ruth Moorman, Jimmy Murray, Edna Miner, Carolyn Simmons, Myrtle Phillips, Nance Cunningham, Katrina Thompson, Thelma Smith, Josiephine Wilkin, Henry and Louise Hoffman, Clayton and Eva Gilman, Ella Wolfer, and Robert Simpson.
