The-.dandeliomiieihis* * trampolin; he leaps wildly upon it, for the * * fun of bouncing and the taste of seed. Only * * in midsummer does the Goldfinch sober up. * * Then you see the happy result —- pale blue * egg in thistledown, thoughtful parent. * E. B.

Everyone enjoyed our last meeting in the park - so it was voted to meet there again this month. All members and friends are invited to bring picnic lunch to the large pavilion in the picnic area, southwest section of Hermann Park. **************** ORNITHOLOGY GROUP REPORTS June 7 - 0. G. Meeting at Hermann Park - (Thelma Smith) While the O.G's enjoyed the picnic suppers they'd brought, two robins fed on the ground near the tables. Our Chairman, Jimmy Murray, introduced the guests - Hiss Jarre11, and Marilia and Robert Furcolow and children from Arlington, Va. The minutes of the previous meeting and the treasurer's report had barely been given when the meeting was interrupted for some on-the-spot birding. A family of screech owls was flying about and perching in the trees overhead. Flashlights were turned on the owls and everyone had a good look. When the meeting resumed, Jimmy Murray discussed plans for this year's program with the objective of having more members participate in the work of the group. He called for volunteers to plan one program each. He also called for volunteers to revive the "calling committee" of the O.G's. Jerry Baker, Ella Wolfer and several others offered to do this work. Suggestions for a meeting place for the group were also requested. Since the park is so centrally located and the meeting was 30 well attended there, it was decided to hold the August meeting there also. **************** CLEARING HOUSE June 3 - Swainson's Hawk was seen near the Seabrook cutoff on the Freeway by Vic Emanuel. June 4 - Armand Yramategui reported a pair of hummingbirds feeding in Mimosa at this home, 2580 Calumet - seen at frequent intervals and possibly nesting in the vicinity. June 7 - Three young bam owls seen perched in the attic vent of the Chemistry Building, Rice Institute, by Aimand Yramategui.
