AROUND AND ABOUT ** Current newsletter exchanges are brought to every meeting, and displayed on a table just outside the auditorium in Bayou Manor for the members to read. If a closer look Is needed, you may take any of them home until the next meeting, Just tell Margaret Jones so shewlli know where It is in case someone calls with a question about that Issue. Two of our exchanges, THE WESTERN TANAGER and THE QUAIL, both of California, contain excellent guides every month to birding in their areas. For the convenience of any of our members who may plan a trip to California in the future, we are placing the Issues we have, and all future ones, in the library, to be consulted when making up your birding Itinerary for a trtp to the West Coast. We also receive the Cornell University Laboratory of Ornithology quarterly newsletter, and also the annual Peregrine Fund Newsletter, published by the Laboratory. The latter newsletter is published "for the study and preserva+lon of falcons and o+her birds of prey" and contains Interesting reading about efforts to reintroduce Peregrines to former haunts, and to propagate peregrines and other falcons In captivity in order to bolster faltering populations. These also are being placed in the Iibrary. ** Speaking of birds of prey, the February, 1979 "Arizona Highways" is one of the most fascinating Issues from that always excellent magazine that the Editor has ever seen. Pictures and words contained therein are the work of one man, wildlife artist Larry Toschik, and constitute a stunning statement of his spirit of thankfulness and appreciation for the wilderness. This has been placed In the library for you to share In a rare experience. ** From "El Tecolote", Bulletin of the Santa Barbara Audubon Society, we learn the Christmas Count total for that group was 214. They led the nation last year, but Freeport's 216 this past Count so far seems to be high. ** Mrs. Gladys Donohue Is doing a study on vulture behaviour. She requests that anyone having had experience with Vultures doing unusual things such as investigating flying kites, for example, write her about it at P.O. Drawer 400, Penltas, Texas 78576. ** SAVE THAT ALUMINUM! Reynolds Aluminum collected an Honorable Mention from Harol Scarlett, Houston Post Environmental writer, for Increasing from 17 cents to 20 cents a pound the amount it pays the public for aluminum cans and other clean house- holdalumlnum for recycling. Reynolds, which operates a permanent recycling facility In Houston at 620 Gellhorn, said the price Increase is an outgrowth of the success of the company's recycling program. Last year, Reynolds paid out $25.4 million for a record 149.5 million pounds of aluminum. This is a good deal for everyone participating, for the OG treasury benefits, Reynold's Aluminum benefits, and the landscape benefits by having a little less litter lying around. So....keep a sack In your car, pick up those cans, and remember to bring them to the 0G meetings. ** In a recent Houston Post we were reminded thaf'birds have long been a problem a+ alrpor+s, and no+ for the same reasons they are problems on church s+eeples or o+her overhead perches. The Federal Avia+Ion Adminis+ra+ion (FAA) and +he United States Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) are getting together to try to improve measures to prevent collisions between aircraft and birds, reports Aviation Week & Space Technology magazine. Soon, airport personnel in areas where our fine-feathered friends are causing safety problems will be getting special training by the FWS. it is estimated that bird "strikes" cause about $20 million damage each year to aircraft. "A -pound bird striking an airplane moving at 500 miles an hour Impacts with a force of 80,000 pounds," the FAA reported. That's some bird, but we can only hope that the government solutions are humane. After all, the birds got the idea of traveling by air a lot sooner than we did." ■•;..:
