Transcript Pa^e 10 T. 0. S. SPRING MEETING by Jimmy Murray The T. 0. S. annual meeting was held in San Antonio, Texas, March 30 through April 2 with headquarters at Whitte Museum in Breckenridge Park and with the San Antonio Audubon Society as hosts to the more than 100 birders present. Our hosts went all out to provide attending members with the necessary components of a very successful meeting, collaborating with their weathermen for a very pleasant weekend, although Friday turned out to be a: bat windy. Numerous field trips were arranged: To Wassenberg Ranch, where the Blaok-eapped Vireo and the Canon Wren were seen and heard singing, and also the rare treat of hearing the Vermillion Flycatcher in song. To Breckenridge Park, where the Long-billed Thrasher and Golden-fronted Woodpecker were sighted together with numerous warblers and vireos. To Conroy Raneh, where Black-crested Titmouse and Carolina Chicakdee crowded around the feeding stations, and a Cactus Wren nested in the barn. Other trips included the Episcopal Church property, Olmos Park, Mitchell Lake and Medina: River off Potramco Road. One of the highlights was the special trip to the San Antonio Zoo - led by the old master himself, Edgar Kincaid - covering the unusual number of birds and waterfowl caged there, both native and foreign. The informal meeting held Friday night was well attended. Members were served coffee and cakes by our hosts and entertained by a movie in color taken by Ed Jones of the San Antonio Audubon Society. The dinner meeting was held Saturday night at De Winne's Belgian Inn. Mr. Theron D„ Carroll, Director of Information and Education Division of The Texas Game and Fish Commission, gave a talk, covering the work of the commission in the conservation of wildlife in Texas. The program was well illustrated with colored slides. Those speoies of special interest to our local members which were seen included the following:: Black-capped Vireo, Yellow-throated Vireo, Canyon Wren, Cactus and Bewick's Wren, Black-crested Titmouse, Long-billed Thrasher, Inca Dove, G den-fronted Woodpecker, and Ladder-backed Woodpecker. Local members attending were small in number. This was due to various reasons! out-of-town guests, Easter Sunday, and the arrival of the Eskimo Curlew in Galveston. ++++++++++ GALVESTON AREA The Galveston Area Committee has acquired a limited number of permits to enter the 5 acres on Stewart Road where The Old House is located. Any member planning a trip for the day to this property please contact the editor or aney Strickling and acquire a permit. Please DO NOT enter this property without a: signed permit. The owner ha this property patrolled, and if you are asked by the sheriff to show your permit, do so freely. Clean up all trash before leaving. ATTENTION PLEASE by Harvey Patten This writer wishes to enlist the help of all interested 0. G. members on a project whieh eould yield valuable results over a period of years. Most of you may be familiar with the large number of migrating birds that are often killed in the fall as they fly against tall buildings and television towers. Similar "kills" have also been recorded during the spring migration in various parts of the country. Several TV towers in Houston probably take their toll of migrating birds, i.e. KH0H-TV, 1945 Buffalo Drive, KPRC-TV, 3Q14 S. Post Oak, and KTRH.- TV, 4513 Oullen Boulevard, Time and the physical layout of the eity prevent me from visiting these localities as often as I desire, and I am sure that some of you pass the towers to or from work. If you are able to stop for a few minutes and dead birds are present, I Would appreciate the following information: 1. A complete list of all birds that are identifiable. 2. If any of the birds are in fairly good condition, you might place them in a paper bag and keep them for me. I suggest placing them in a freezer until I can obtain them from you. Prior to April 15 and after May 1 call MO. 4-O504. During the last two weeks in April, Jerry Strickling (PA 3-5394) will ccept calls for me. Long lists, if there are any, can be mailed to 9714 Marline Lane, Apt. 24, (25). If any of you do obtain birds, you should retain them until I can pick them up personally.
