Transcript r SPOONBILL Published by the Ornithology Group, Outdoor Nature Club Houston, Texas B. C. Robison, editor Vol. XXXIV, No. 5 May, 1985 Qc#h+4»C. SvZ+Zt Monday, June 3, 1985: Deadline for announcements, Spoonbill articles, and Clearing House reports. Saturday, June 8, 1985: OG field trip to Brazos Bend State Park for breeding birds, led by Bob Honig, Don Richardson and Doug Williams. Meet at the Park Headquarters at 7:00 AM. Acadian Flycatchers, Parula and Pro- thonotary Warblers and Painted Buntings are among the species which breed in the park's woodlands, while the several lakes support populations of herons and egrets, ducks, and Anhinga, among others. To get to the park, take U.S. 59 South from Houston. After crossing the Brazos River, exit Crabb River Rd. and follow signs to park (from U.S. 59, you will first be on FM 2759, then FM 762; if you reach the end of FM 762 at FM 1462, you have gone about 1 mile past the park. ) Bring lunch, water and bug spray; be prepared to do a fair amount of walking. There is a $2 per car entrance fee for the park. Allow 45- 60 minutes from Houston. THERE WILL BE NO OG MEETINGS DURING JUNE AND JULY Report of "O. G. Oglers" Birdathon -1985 by Noel Pettingell Our team consisted of Stennie Mea- dours, Gene Heitzman (who did all the driving,) Steve Williams, and the writer representing the Ornithology Group membership of the Outdoor Nature Club of Houston. For us, the Birdathon began at 3:25 A.M. when we drove off in a rented Toyota mini-van loaded with ice-chests filled with canned drinks and sandwiches, bags and boxes bulging with cookies, donuts and a variety of assorted munchies, and other birder necessities such as containers of coffee and water. We heard our first species of the day an hour later(4:22), a barn owl along the old Angleton Road. Three more owls (Screech, Horned and Barred) were added to the list by the time we reached the Lake Jackson Wilderness Trail along Buffalo Camp Bayou. We hiked this woodsy path from 5:30 to 7:00 A.M. without finding a single warbler, thrush or tanager, although a House Wren and White-throated Sparrows helped ease our keen disappointment over the lack of passerine migrants. However, Lake Jackson was where we found the best bird of the day - Buff-bellied Hummingbird! Stennie had checked with Faye Humphrey earlier in the week and found out that a Buff-belly had been frequenting the feeder at Carolyn Killian's residence (208 Oyster Creek) for some two weeks. The next day we learned that an immature Rufous was also present at the same feeder we had watched the day before, but the only other hummer we saw while there was an adult male Ruby-throat. We arrived at the San Bernard National Wildlife Refuge (in. the southwest corner of Brazoria Co.) just before 9, adding the only Marsh Wren of the day and then boarding a tractor-drawn "rail wagon" for a 45-minute ride into the marsh. Our driver was Mike Lang, who was a most helpful and informative guide. During this time we added a number of species which were found nowhere else, including Sora, Sedge Wren, Sharp-tailed and Seaside Sparrows. Other essential species which we observed from within the refuge were White- faced and White Ibises, Fulvous Whistling
