Transcript gPOOI^BILL Published by the Ornithology Group, Outdoor Nature Club Houston, Texas B. C. Robison, editor Vol. XXXIV, No. 12 December, 1985 CevhU+fi £v&hZ>t Thursday, Jan. 2, 1985: Ornithological Group meeting at Bayou Manor, 4141 S. Braeswood, 7:30 PM. Tommy Michael will present the program: "Rocky Mountain Splendor." Tommy spent his summer in true wilderness, and those of us who lack his fortitude and stamina, or else the free time to do likewise, can enjoy hearing about it. Deadline for Spoonbill articles and announcements. Fridayf Jan. 3, 1985: Deadline for Clearing House reports. Tuesday, Jan. 14 Outdoor Nature Club meeting, 7:30 PM, Garden Center, Hermann Park. The program will be "Explorer's Texas - The Lands and Waters," presented by Del Weniger of Our Lady of the Lake University in San Antonio. Saturday, Jan. 25: Ornithology Group Field Trip: Ron Braun and Fred Collins will lead the group to Cinco Ranch and West Harris Co. mainly to see sparrows, but possibly Sandhill Cranes and Woodcock as well. Meet at 7:00 AM at the northeast corner of West Oaks Shopping Center parking lot, Westheimer and Hwy. 6. Bring lunch and be prepared for wet walking. Thursday, Feb. 6, 1985:. Ornithological Group meeting. Doug Morris, Special Agent for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will speak on federal wildlife law enforcement, from its origins in the days of overhunting of egrets for plumes to current endangered species laws and international wildlife traffic regulations. (The last item should be of special interest to those who travel abroad and like to bring back souvenirs of the wildlife you encounter.) Among the various duties of a Special Agent is involvement in sting operations, so Doug should have many fascinating stories to tell. Plan to be there. THE EXTINCTION OF A MAGNIFICENT BIRD by Art MacKinnon On August 8, 1985 the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service declared Campephi- lus principalis extinct in these United States. The Ivory-billed Woodpecker was listed as endangered on March 11, 1967; no critical habitat has been designated. The lack of confirmed sightings in recent years may indicate that the Ivory- bill is extinct, and if so, it should be removed from the list of endangered and threatened wildlife. So read the Fish and Wildlife announcement. I planned an expedition for February 15-16 and 22-23; I have canceled on the basis of facts that the Fish and Wildlife Service have presented. Let us hope the Ivory-bill has not joined the Great Auk and Passenger Pigeon. If it has we should focus on other species which need our help so as to prevent their demise.
