Transcript About the Ornithology Group The Ornithology Group (OG) is a member ofthe Outdoor Nature Club (ONC), a non-profit organization dedicated to greater knowledge about the environment and wildlife ofthe Upper Texas Coast. The OG is a club of individuals interested in all aspects of birding, including bird identification, listing bird sightings, competing in birding events and preserving bird habitat. Some members study bird behavior, biology, distribution and migration, while others just enjoy watching birds. The organization is designed to accommodate these diverse birding interests. Monthly meetings and field trips provide an opportunity to interact with and learn from experts in local and international birding. Officers: Chair Treasurer Secretary Clhouse SB Editor Skip Almoney Patsy Lawrence Margret Simmons David Sarkozi M.P. Haddican 713-524-4285 713-661-8954 713-520-5906 281-589-0005 Minutes of the November Meeting Margret Simmons Learning Corner: David Bradford talked about sparrows found on the roadside and in hedgerows. Chairman Skip Almoney conducted the meeting. Bird Sightings: Two Short-eared Owls were seen this morning at Morrison & Pattison Rd. in Waller Co. Other birds seen recently were Broad- billed Hummingbird in Willowbend area; also White- tailed hawk and Pine Warblers. Budget Approval: A sheet was made available with the 2001 budget and two proposed budgets for 2002, a "bare bones" and an "active" budget. A motion was made and seconded to approve the "active" budget. Some discussion followed about dropping some ofthe hems (hawk count & Christmas count boat) and not wanting to raise dues any more since we lost some members the last time dues were raised. Suggestions were made to use grocery store cards or to have seminars with fees to raise money. Some were concerned that the "active" budget could leave us with a large deficit if we fail to get new members, but others thought it was worth the risk The mo tion to accept the "active" budget passed. Memorial Park Golf Expansion: After some discussion, a nearly unanimous decision was reached for the Ornithology Group to actively oppose any expansion ofthe golf course in Memorial Park in order to bring the PGA tour there. Monthly Field Trips: Glenn Olsen announced mat the December trip is the Houston CBC on the 15th; January 12 & 13 are David Bradford's sparrow trips to West Harris County; and February is a trip to Huntsville State Park. Quarterly Field Trips: OG had a very successful trip to Rockport led by Michael Marsden. Thanks to Margaret Butler for all her work. The next trip will be to the Rio Grande Valley led by David Sarkozi February 15-17. The following quarterly trip is tentatively to Choke Canyon. A summer trip to Costa Rica is planned for June 8-15 led by David Sarkosi. David Poteet is planning to take a group to the Davis Mountains in early June for 6 or 7 days. Environmental Issues: The ONC has a website at www.outdoornatureclub.org that has current information on environmental issues. Everyone is encouraged to go to the Dec. 12 hearing on expanding the Bayport Container facility to oppose it Another concern is the proposal before Galveston City Council to build a golf course on East Beach. The EPA may have to get involved on the Houston ozone requirements being set by the Texas Senate environmental committee. Program: Very interesting information and pleas by several Christmas Bird Count compilers in the Houston area for participation in the following: P.D.
