Transcript VOLUME VIII HO. 8 DECEMBER 195g fcsa lars) ************************* •The beak of a bird is the index of his charac- • •ter, just as character is written in the human • •face. A grain-eating bird has short, heavy • •jaws. Insect eaters have more slender bills, • •and birds of prey have a decidedly hooked bill • •The kind of nest they build depends on their * •bills. It is said that all trades are repre- • •sented among the birds. The robin is a mason. * •He takes mud and clay and binds it together • •with sticks and straw. The woodpecker is a • •carpenter. See him drill that circular open- * •ing in a hollow tree. The oriole is a weaver. * *So the oriole, the hummingbird and the little * •marsh wren with their long, sharp bills weave * •a dainty nest, while the grosbeak with his * 'thick, clumsy bill can only lay sticks loosely * •together. Taken from "Yearbook on Texas Con- * •servation of wildlife, I929-I93O" * ******* ****************** PUBLISHED BY THE ORNITHOLOGY GROUP, OUTDOOR NATURE CLUB, HOUSTOH, TEXAS FORTHCOMING ACTIVITIES December 17 Hr.

January 2 TWENTY-FIFTH ANNUAL CHRISTMAS BIRD COUNT in the Houston area. Please note changed date: SATURDAY. JANUARY 2. Sorry, but we had to change to be within the legal time limit for the National Audubon Society. Time will be from just barely can see to drop dead at midnight. Again, the J. A. Snyders have invited us to meet at the end of the day in their beautiful home. Buffet will be served, counts turned in, and bare-faced bragging will be indulged in. The man to see if you are willing to assist (in the birding not the bragging) is Walter Barbare, field trip chairman, at Gy 4-2365. 0. G. needs I-O-U. If you feel doubtful as to your ability in identifying birds, remember that this is a census and you can make yourself valuable by tallying, driving and spotting. It would surprise modest little ol' you to know how much you are wanted. January 5 Everyone is invited to be guests of the Photography Group for a special showing of the slides featured at the T. 0. S. meeting. The subjects Birds and bird nurseries. The time and place: 7J30 p.m. at the United Gas auditorium in Palms Center. January 12 Regular meeting of the Outdoor Nature Club. Mr. Phil D.

It takes a lot of work to learn a little. To succeed, says one writer, * you must have the bird in your heart before you seek him in the bush."
