Transcript Volume XVIII, No, 11 March, 1970 Is this a time to be cloudy and sad, When our mother Nature laughs aroundj When even the deep blue heavens look glad, And gladness breathes from the blossoming ground? There are notes of joy from the hang-bird and wren, And the gossip of swallows through all the sky; The ground-squirrel gayly chirps by his den, And the wilding bee hums merrily by, "The Gladness of Nature." William Cullen Bryant, PUBLISHED BY THE ORNITHOLOGY GROUP, OUTDOOR NATURE CLUB, HOUSTOH, TEXAS REFUGIO SAFARI by Gladys Galbreath At 7830 A.M, February 14, 1970, Messrs, Craft and Henry. Quintana Petroleum Corporation employees and Mr, Williams, Dennis O'Connor employee, acted as leaders of Refugio Safari in which 40 Outdoor Hature Club members participated. We were granted the special privilege of going on the O'Connor Ranch of many thousand acres and bordering on Copan% Bay. Mr. Williams lead us over roads that were questionable, some of such black mud as to cause bogging, but with his Ford of many wheel-drives, no one was lost in the brush country. Mr, Craft was official gate closer and Mr. Henry kept a good eye on all concerned. Bird speeies spotted numbered about 50 with a Caracara being the outstanding. This particular fellow entertained us with a beautiful exhibition of gliding, A Greathorn Owl was found in one of the few wooded areas we passed. Deer were abundant and two wolves loped into view. Conservation is constantly practiced on the Ranch and we were the largest number of ears ever allowed on it. The really speeial part of this trip was a visit to the Port de Copana, now in ruins, which at one time handled the largest number of schooners on the Texas Coast at the end of 1700 and the first part of 1800. It was discovered in 1528 by Cabeza De Vaea and was named for a small tribe of Krankawa Indians who were cannibalistic. A very good time was had by all on this day, lasting from 7:30 A.M to about 5;00 P.M, at which time we were greeted by nine species of happy dogs who were especially glad to see Mr, Williams, About 9:00 A.M, February 15, 1970 Outdoor Hature Club's able leader, Mr, Clayton Gilman, lead us on a trip to Welder Wildlife Refuge, There we counted 42 species of birds; wild turkey gobblers, in their beautiful bronze feathers, were to be seen in large flocks; most Members were especially delighted in seeing a Pyrrhuloxia. Redbirds were all over the drab brush country and what a splash of color they made. About noon a rain began, and couple that with gumbo black mud our viewing interests were curbed, Hr. Henry accompanied us and thouroughly enjoyed Welder as it was his first visit even though he lives in that area. He needs the Outdoor Nature Club me thinks. A list of birds follows; White Pelican Anhinga Great Blue Heron Pied Billed Grebe Egret, Common Cattle Hawk, Marsh Sparrow Caracara Crane, Sandhill Killdeer Crow Thrasher, Brown Herman Kinglet, Ruby-crowned Cowbird Shrike Warbler, Myrtle
