So first they tried to find a new place; the Sugarland area. That took special permission, letters, etc. Then they needed an additional place for waterbirds so that took more wire pulling = permission from the board of the Hermann Hospital estates to go on the Highway 6 lake.

However, two weeks later the sun shone brightly. It was a gorgeous day and Leota Stilwell, Carrie Holcomb, Thelma Smith, Ruth Moorman, Norma Oates, and the Hoffmans wanted to have another try at the area. So off we went and had an exciting day. We saw a Caracara standing in a field having a heated argument with a flock of Crows. We saw a Crow dive-bombing a Red- shouldered Hawk. We saw a Cooper's Hawk harassing a Red-tall. We saw a melanistlc Red-tailed Hawk, as black as the ace of spades. We observed an
