This trip will be an excellent opportunity to learn and study the various shorebirds. Don't miss it. ONCE MORE UNTO THE THICKET by Betty Williams Dr. William Graeber of Beaumont led a small but determined group to the edge of the Big Thicket near Silsbee to search for that elusive Red Cockaded Woodpecker. After several hours of fruitless searching, we found his nest in a "still live" pine tree and peeking out at us was our bird. We banged on the tree and out he flew for all of us to view. The group sighted at least 49 different species during the day. Included were many Brown- headed Nuthatches, and a real "goodie" was the Bachman's Sparrow in full spring plumage AND singing two of his lovely melodies while perched in full view on the top of a small oak! About 10 miles west of Beaumont was a plowed field just brimful of White-rumped Sandpipers- at least 100! The woodpecKer, sparrow and sandpiper were all lifers for me so I'm not going to complain about the poison oak, mosquitoes and chiggers that fouad us! Hr. Sherwood Davis found the nest of the Red-cockaded Woodpecker. If you'd like to see this nest, call Harvey Patten for route particulars. FIELD TRIP TO AVERY ISLAND BY BUS by Edna Miner (Saturday and Sunday, May 21 aad 22, 1966. Led by Jim O'Neill aad Clayton Gilman) It was fun. With two-supermen as leaders, more than. 85 members of the Outdoor Nature Club went in two busses and four, or more private ears. Seven in the morning was the deadline at the Continental station. All arrived in high spirits, ready to enjoy the trip to .the limit, which they did. The first stop for a coffee break at the Ramada Inn ia Beaumont gave a chance to take a picture of the sign "Welcome Outdoor Nature Club". The lunch at the Holiday Inn in Lafayette got the whole crowd together to see who was there. The Jungle Gardens at Avery Island are a rewarding experience at any time of the year, but this was the nesting seasoa for the Common Egrets, Snowy Egrets, Louisiana Herons, and Anhingas.
