Houston Garden Center in Hermann Park, 7:30 PM. Friday evening-Sunday afternoon. May 17- 19, 1985: Joint ONC/OG field trip to Pedernales Falls State Park in the Hill Country west of Austin. Priscilla Bauer is coordinating the outing; please call her at 923-5139 for information about activities. Contact the park directly (512-868- 7304) to reserve a campsite; reservations can be made for Friday and Saturday nights, or for Saturday night only. (Please note: all the campsites reserved previously for this trip as a group have been filled already, so you need to make the reservations on your own). Motels in Johnson City, about 10-15 miles from the park, are another option. Charles Motel (512-868-7171), Krieders Motel (512-868-7163), Eureka Motel (512- 868-4490). On Sunday morning, Greg Lasley will lead a birding outing to look for golden-cheeked warblers, black-capped vireos, and other birds of the Edwards Plateau. Greg is an OG member who lives in Austin and is very familiar with the birds of the area. A botany walk led by Kay Lewis will be held Saturday. Bring hot dogs and fixings for a group campfire Saturday night. Inadvertent Red Crossbill Record for Houston by Randy Pinkston Was it a bad year for Douglas fir cones in the Rockies or did winter storms hit early and severely enough to drive them southward? Maybe there's been a population explosion of Cooper's Hawks or perhaps the appearance of mutant genes for vagrant behavior. For whatever reason, this winter hints suspiciously of a Red Crossbill invasion into Texas. This parrot-like oddity was added to many a state list when a half dozen took up residence near Comfort for three weeks in November. Twenty were observed in Big Spring on 17 November and two females were seen in Concan (n. of Uvalde) on the 11th. One was found dead in San Antonio earlier in the month. Additional reports came from the Panhandle in Amarillo, Lorenzo and Lubbock. Prior to other reports across the state last fall, an adult female Red Crossbill appeared briefly at a feeder in w. Houston (near 1-10 and Kirkwood). It was sighted, identified and superbly photographed by Don Wilson at his home on the 2nd and 3rd of September and then it disappeared. It was the tall pines in Don's neighborhood and his backyard Droll Yankee feeder that attracted the crossbill. He said she seemed somewhat exhausted or disoriented at first but that there was never any doubt about her dominance over the House Sparrows attempting to share the seed. She was actually quite aggressive toward them but allowed Don close approach to within 2 feetl—close enough to see well that the upper mandible crossed on the left side. He describes its single call note as harsh and jay-like.
