April 38 * ORNITHOLOGY GROUP REPORTS O.G, Spring Roundup * * * * Details will be announced in April SPOONBILL O.G. Meeting, Thursday, February 7th - Thelma Smith, Seey. Jimmy Murray, Chairman, called the meeting to order at the River Oaks Garden Center and introduced the guests: Mrs. Evans, Mrs. Strong and Mr. Don Bredweister. Mr. Murray ealled on Noel Perley, Chairman of the Christmas Count, for a brief resume of that undertaking. Mr. Perley gave the following highlights of the Count: 133 species recorded; one party observed a total of 94 species which set a new record for the Houston counts; unusual species recorded were Black tern, Oregon junco, Parula warbler, Green-tailed towhee. Carl Aiken presented the idea of a spring migration count to be conducted through April and May in an area yet to be defined, probably Kemah and Galveston Island. Armand Yramategui reported that the State Game and Fish Commission had rejected the request for an economic study of the golden eagle. If made, the study would underscore the need for putting the eagle back on the protected list. Henry V. Aldrich, ONC Chairman for the flower show in March, described the proposed exhibit and requested the loan of bird houses, feeders and mounted birds to be used in the arrangements. In addition to the exhibit, the ONC program will inelude two shows of colored slides, one a Sanctuary Show to be presented by L. A, McWhirter and the other, a Flower Show by Mrs. Laurence N. Dexter. Mr. Murray reported that the land sought by the O.G. as a bird sanctuary within the City, is close to Miss Tm« Hogg's home which she is deeding to the city. There is talk of putting a road through there which would make the land more accessible. Mr. Yramategui*s discussion of the "Darwinian Finches" of the Galapagos Islands was most interesting. He explained how the four genera of the Island, composed of fourteen speeies, are believed to have evolved from one species. The balance of the program was devoted to 16-millimeter, color movies, taken by Mrs. Charles Aves and shown and narrated by Charles Aves. The O.G.'era enjoyed a delightful armchair field trip to three of their favorite birding spots - Aransas Wildlife Refuge, Rockport Shore Line and Freeport. Wild turkeys stalked through the tall grasses of the refuge; snow and Canada geese and Sandhill cranes fed in the open fields; deer looked inquisitively at the camera and then scampered off • Shor-e birds fed and preened in the water edge,with one reddish egret putting on a particularly good show. Many other shots of wildlife appeared in Mrs. Aides' excellent film. On behalf of the O.G.'s Mr. Murray thanked both Mr. Yramategui and Mr. Aves for their fine programs.
