(Saturday) - Field Trip Meet at Almeda and Holcombe (SE corner of Hermanh 3?ark), just south of Holcombe on Almeda Highway esplanade. Our trip leader will be Josiephine Wilkin who will direct us south on Almeda (Texas 288) some 18 miles to Juliff in NE Ft. Bend County. Mrs. Wilkin adds the following information: "At the July 1 Business Meeting, several locales were discussed for future field trips, one being around Juliff. A trip was made July 24 by your Field Trip Chairman to this area and it appears to be a very good choice for a late afternoon trip. During the course of a pleasant chat with Mr. A. M. Miller (owner of the property)f the Ornithology Group was offered an invitation to view the Herons flying in to roost. The Little Blue Herons and Cardinals seem to have a "bumper crop11 of young this year. Unusual birds seen on this short trip (which we hope to show the group) were: Wood Ibis, Barred Owl (beside the road at dusk), Yellow-billed Cuckoos, Indigo Buntings, Prothonotary and Black-and-White Warblers, and Yellow-throats." September 2, (Thursday) - Business Meeting Please keep this date in mind as this is the only notice you will receive. FOR YOUR INFORMATION The August 1954 issue of NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE contains an article by Roger Tory Peterson entitled "A New Bird Immigrant Arrives" The article contains 9 illustrations of the Cattle Egret of the Old World which suddenly appeared in several States. Mr. Peterson made this significant statement: "I believe it will do extremely well when it reaches the coastal prairies of Texas. The veldlike, semiarid terrain, oak clumps, thicket-lined rivers, and hybrid Brahman livestock are made to order for the Cattle Egret's needs,"
