Transcript ) fe=a VOLUME XIV, No. 3 Jcly, 1965 "Bird watching embraces individual enterprise on the one hand, collective effort on the other. Above all else, it is marked by a ready exchange of experience, by a high regard for truth, and by a conviction that wild birds express the most spectacular development of nature.' Joseph J. Hickey, A Guide to Bird Watching, Doubleday, Natural History Library Ed., 19f-3 ************** *********** it * PUBLISHED BY THE ORNITHOLOGY GROUP, OUTDOOR NATURE CLUB, HOUSTON, TEXAS COMING EVENTS August 26 (Thursday) OG meeting, John O'Neill, who has birded much in Peru, will be our speaker. We are sure that anyone who heard John's preview at the Annual Picnic Meeting will NOT want to miss this meeting. Watch for details concerning time and place later in this issue. No August field trip; however, birders are advised to do their "homework* (birding on their own) so that they*—L be warmed up and "hot to trot" come September. Happy Summer! CORRECTION to the June Spoonbill? It seems that both the typesetter and the proofreader goofed badly ia the omission of an important word in the "Comiag Events"- section of the last issue. The sentence, of course, should read: "We are sure that anyone who heard John's preview at the Annual Picnic Meeting will not want to miss this meeting." Our apologies to Mr. O'Neill. FIELD TRIP ON GALVESTON ISLAND JUNE 12 by Josiephine Wilkin The Clapper Rails playing "hide and seek" at the East Jetty were most interesting. They would run up the side of the dam and before one oould get a good look, they were back in the grass. After everyoae had seen the rails including some brave young ones go over the dam much to our delight, our leaders Bill and Jean Harwell suggested that we be on our way. Driving down the east end of the island, we saw a Black Skimmer colony with a number of young running around, a Reddish Egret showing off, a Seaside Sparrow teasing us, and several species of terns including the Sandwich. Why, even chairs were there so one could sit and look at the birds in comforts On our way to the west end of the island we stopped at the Washburn's home. Their Purple Martin house was well-occupied and the birds very active. We were soon seeing Cattle Egrets along S Road, and on 8 Mile Road the first surprise of the day, an Avocet. Everyone was excited and Jean lost her sunglasses. Anderson Ways proved productive with the White Ibis and Clapper Rails most cooperative. One of the Clapper Rails was crippled, and we could not help but wonder how it happened and admire its spunk as it searched for food. Backtracking towards S Road produced Jean"s glasses, but the Avocet was gone. We saw Mottled Ducks and Black-necked Stilts with young where we usually see the Tree Ducks, but the latter were not seen by our party. Noel Pettingell, in Galveston the same day with his family, said he saw two Tree Ducks near Teichman Road. Other places on and slightly of S Road were skipped in favor of heading straight for the beach (13 Mile Road) to eat our lunch. Of course, while eating we were scanning the sky for Frigate birds. None was seea by our party; however, three were seea the following day, Sunday, by Norma Oates and Ruth Morman. Now, don't get the idea we missed all the "goodies" because the best was yet to come! After lunch,
