Transcript ~? _cse) s_-a VOLUME XVIV, No. 3 July,1970 PUBLISHED BY THE ORNITHOLOGY GROUP, OUTDOOR NATURE CLUB, HOUSTON, TEXAS MINUTES OF THE MEETING JUNE 6, 1970 by Gladys Galbreath, Secretary The June 6, 1970, meeting of the Ornitology Group was called to order by the Chairman, Sarah Gordon, at 4:30 P.M. at the G.G. Ranch. The thirteen members and one guest, Marjorie Ross, began arrinving at 2:00 P.M. for the combination meeting and picnic. Birding was limited. The Chairman expressed the Group's appreciation of the hospitality extended, and for a most delightful afternoon. The Minutes of the last meeting were read and approved after correction of date of June meeting from the 2nd to the 6th. The Treasurer, Kelba Drake, read her report which showed an April balance of $129.03 plus receipts of $52.10, less expenses of $51-33 leaving a May 30 balance of $129.60, however, she reported the financial condition was not really as bad as it appeared. Melba advised there are a number of Steve Willians' Check Lists on hand selling for $1.25, same being limited editions. It was suggested one would be a valuable addition to one's bird library. Old business discussed was the sale of most of the Check Lists which leaves the Group with the problem of having new ones printed. The cost of prining this list four years ago was approximately $421.80 for 5,000, Methods of raising money were discussed, and garage sale, movie, etc were suggested. Mr. Gilman suggested an new price of 2/25^ or 15^ each. The Chairman will check further with Wally Mebane, and will submit other ideas and prices. A new roster is needer for the Ornithology Group for 1970, as many changes have occurred. Prices will be checked on the prining for a simpler one. New business was the announcement of next meeting which will be Thursday, August 6 at 7:30, Recreation Center. Manager of the Center is to be notified. Melba Drake, Treasurer, requested permission to change bank account from Bank of Texas to University State Bank, There will be no bank charge. No motion was necessary. It was suggested that we appoint a member to notify Outdoor Nature Club of our activities, as well as giving publicity to news media. Marjorie Adams of Austin wrote regarding a statewide bird alert, Sarah Gordon will write a letter to Parks and Wildlife, Reagan Building, Austin, Texas. Tess Barry made a motion that Sarah Gordon write letter agreeing to Bird Alert if there was no expense to us whieh was seconded by Gladys Galbreath. Carried. Mr. Gilman has a pamphlet, published by ONC, which he hands out at various parks, etc. telling of our Club, Mrs. Massingill has agreed to serve as head of "Bird Alert" for whieh we are most appreciative. There being no further business, the meeting adjourned, BIRD BEHAVIOUR OR "BIRDS DO THE STRAHGEST THINGS" by Dirk Hagemeyer Most of us have at one time or another seen the broken wing act of a Killdeer dr1 maybe a Black Necked Stilt or perhaps even a Nighthawk. I always understood that this behaviour was to attract attention and lead the interloper away from a nesting site or hidden young. Recently however, I saw a Killdeer do a brokem wing act right in front of a Black-necked Stilt.
