Transcript • # Jtrage c. was now around 2 P.M. and the more energetic birders guided by Jimmy Murray, made their way back down toward the river in search of the elusive Woodcock. Upon entering the so-called "Woodcock area" the group spread out in hopes that someone would flush the hard-to-find bird. After a twenty-minute search, two birds were flushed by Mr. Murray. There were those, of course, who just had to "see for themselves" and one of the birds was flushed two more times before the out of binocular range) feeding along the shore and flying out over the water. After a bit the bird turned its back and showed a yellow rump—I-fyrtle Warbler, of course! (Earlier, at Lake Houston, a Myrtle had been mistaken for a Water Pipit I) This, one might say, was enough and a perfect time to end a wonderful trip. Total species for the day: 64. Mileage: 60* Observers: Jerry Baker, Mary Clark, Betty Crowley, Sue Harris, Darris Massingill, Don Melstrom, Edna Miner, Ruth Moorman, Jimmy Murray, Hilda Wesom,Norma Oates, George Palmer, Noel Pettingell, Mac Ramsey, Charlotte Reindl, Leota Stilwell, Theo Temple, and Josiephine Wilkin. Meeting - February 3 - by Josiephine Wilkin Although it was raining, we had a nice group present at the meeting. After the business part of the meeting, Mabel Cline showed some posters she had made for the exhibit at Woodrow Wilson School and some bird nests gathered by the school children. Now comes the big surprise - we are happy to announce we have another photographer, Charlotte Reindl, who showed two reels of moving pictures she took, entitled "Birds and Animals." You may take our word for it, the rooster crowing at the beginning of the film had every right to do so. Charlotte!s pictures were taken from blinds, but once she was forced to climb a ladder when photographing a battle between House Sparrows and Purple Martins for possession of a home—the Martins won. Pictures were taken of Cardinals, House Sparrows, Blue Jays and a Brown Thrasher bathing in the bird bath. We saw a male Cardinal feeding his offspring at the feeding station. Another hard-to-get picture was of a Blue Jay stealing pecans put ou for the squirrels. Charlotte's brother, Carl, thrust wire thru the pecans and fastened them down so the Jay would remain in camera range long enough to be photographed. In this way, we were able to see the Jay take the pecan, crack it and eat the nut-meats. She captured a flock of Robins on film which were feeding on berries. There were also pictures of Quail, Laughing Gulls, and Pelicans. Our photographer took us on a visit to the Houston and San Antonio zoos and showed the various acts performed by the animals. Among the pictures were a few of scenery; e.g., azaleas, beautiful autumn tree foliage, and Guernsey Lilies in full bloom in her yard. We could go on and on, but here we will steal one of Charlotte's clever titles and say, "That's all Folks!" t Exhibit at Woodrow Wilson School - February 15 m*mwmmmm~Lmmmm*-~mmmmmmm~m*m**mmmmmmm , , n —~~+m» hi i —m- I Ii I ^m~m»~mm~ms*—mmm~—m~~—mmmm i i I I n m i •mmm~m~mm—*p^m~~~*~mmm This exhibit was sponsored by the Elementary Science Council and was displayed on grade level, each grade having a room of its own. The material was furnished by teachers and their pupils. On display were mounted specimens, drawings, wood carvings, nest and eggs (some furnished by the Museum of Natural History) , games to test your skill on identifying birds, posters displaying the "weapons" of the bird-watcher, and a live Sparrow Hawk which was in a cage eating his meal as though he was in his natural habitat. Eleanor MacMahon and Josiephine Wilkin assisted Mabel Cline in distributing the material Miss Cline had gathered to be given to each person attending the exhibit. This material was eagerly accepted by all and consisted of Birding Quips, The Migration of Birds, Books about Birds, list of birds observed on the "Big Day" Hay 2, 1954, and the Christmas Count Jan. 2, 1955* Conservation Bulletin No. 1, "Attracting Birds," No. 14, "Homes for Birds," and a collection of poems on birds sent in by the teachers and compiled by Nannette Hartnan. Everyone assembled in the auditorium at 4 P.M. to view the Ornithology Group's show entitled "Birds and Their Habitats" presented by Leonard McWhirter. As most of you know, the background
