Take Hwy. 71 from I-10 to Austin. Just before reaching Bergstrom Air Force Base (approximately 15 miles outside of Austin), turn right on Hwy. 973. You will see the Hornsby Bend sign on your left after crossing the Colorado River, about one-half mile off of Hwy. 71. Turn left into Hornsby Bend and follow the road around the ponds. In mid-October, Red-necked Phalarope, Ruff and Surf Scoter were spotted on the ponds. In late October, I spotted 15 Common Snipe, Peregrine Falcon, numerous Green-winged Teal, Northern Shoveler, Spotted Sandpiper, Black-bellied Plover, Avocet, Lesser Scaup, Blue- winged Teal, dowitchers, and Dunlin. Other birds reported at Hornsby Bend in September were King Rail, Sora, ___JMINUTES OF NOVEMBER 2,1992 OG MEETING: David Bradford shared his knowledge of sparrow identification, habitat and behavior for the Learning Corner. Bob Honig, Chairman, opened the brief business meeting by announcing that he, Peter Gottschling and Lynne Aldrich will be the nominating committee for 1993 officers. Bob noted the 70th anniversary of the ONC will be celebrated April 4, 1993 at the Houston Arboretum. OG members interested in leading a short nature walk that day were encouraged to volunteer. You may call Bob at 665- 6963. Treasurer Frank Peace reported a balance of $7,766.62 in the OG account. Membership is down by 40-50 members from last year. Jim Morgan gave his excellent presentation on the various Red-tailed Hawk color morphs. With all seven subspecies, both adults and immatures appearing on the Upper Texas Coast identification offers a challenge. With an excellent selection of slides, Jim stressed diagnostic markings such as the ptagiak, which are obvious on lighter morphs, but blended into invisibility on the dark morphs. He also noted the tail was not always obviously red due to available light during observation. Of interest was the Harlan's Hawk, which Jim has observed for thirteen consecutive years just west of Mason Road on Clay Road. He's back! Christine Bourgeois, Secretary ******* ___ANTIFREEZE KILLED RELEASED CONDOR. A rare California Condor that died in the wild last month suffered kidney failure after drinking antifreeze. Officials said the bird, named Chocuyens, apparently came across a puddle of antifreeze left by a vehicle at the Pyramid Lake recreation area. Chocuyens was found dead October 8 on a rocky ledge near the lake's dam in southern California's Angeles National Forest. Officiak said the bird was probably attracted by the sweet flavor of ethylene glycol, one of the ingredients of antifreeze. Only 63 California Condors exkt, all but one in zoos. Six more are to be released in December. Houston Chronicle, November 9,1992. ******* HYBRID CRANE OBSERVED IN NEW MEXICO.
