Transcript SPOOIHBIJX Published by the Ornithology Group, Outdoor Nature Club Houston, Texas B. C. Robison, editor Vol. XXXIV, No. 8 August, 1985 Q&tyXyU.fc.VJbtdt Thursday, Sept. 1985: Ornithology Group meeting, 7:30 PM, Bayou Manor Auditorium, 4141 South Braeswood. The program will be the showing of two movies from the Chihuahuan Desert Series: "Where Rainbows Wait For Rain" and "Desert Semaphore," also deadline for Spoonbill articles and announcements. Tuesday, Sept. 10: Outdoor Nature Club meeting, Hermann Park Garden Center, 7:30 PM. Program: "Plants of the Texas Shore" by author Mary Michael Conna- tella. Saturday, Sept. 28: Ornithology Group Field Trip: First Annual PTC Close-site Hawk Watch. This event is being organized to coincide with the existing annual hawk watch conducted on the same date on the central Texas coast. A number of potentially fruitful locations will be occupied on the OTC by observers attending this field "trip." Sites along the Brazos River and possibly other key waterways will receive high priority. Data collected will be organized, analyzed and submitted to Chuck Sexton, Regional Editor, South Central, for publication in THE NEWSLETTER of the Hawk Migration Association of North America. This field trip will definitely be different - no hiking, no driving from spot to spot. Observers will stay in the same location and identify and tabulate hawk numbers. If the weather is right, huge numbers of hawks can be seen. For further details, attend the OG meeting or call Ron Braun (496-3108) or Jim Morgan (461-3080). Breeding Avian Fauna of the Big Thicket by Art MacKinnon Another breeding season has gone and we had a most satisfactory count. Erin Williams, John Kendall and I covered a five-county area in a two- month period and totaled 91 breeding bird species, 14 of which were warblers. There were several significant sightings. On the Neches River, American Swallow-tailed Kites were observed in the Tyler County area; a Black-bellied Whistling-Duck with two downy young was spotted on the Neches River near Beaumont. Fourteen Red-cockaded Wood- jjpckers (5 juveniles) and eight Bach- man's Sparrows (4 juveniles) were observed. We were disappointed with the breeding results of the Prairie Warblers. Fourteen adults were observed in Hardin County near Silsbee. The many Brown- headed Cowbirds possibly contributed to this fact. This Census was taken to determine the number of summer residents in the Big Thicket Preserve. All birds included in the Census area are not breeders, but they are added to the data. Spring 1985 - A Fluke or an Ominous Sign? by Jim Morgan On the Upper Texas Coast (UTC) veteran observers judge spring migrations by some combination of the following criteria: 1)The number and size (or "volume") of neotropical migrant "fallouts"; 2)The number and "quality" of rarities (accidental and/or vagrant species); 3)Unusual numbers of "hard-to-see" attractive species (e.g. Western Tanagers, Bobolinks and Yellow- headed Blackbirds).
