Transcript 2 VOLUME XVI, NO. 12 April, PROGNOSTICATIOHS FROM FOLKLORE: When man-of-war hawks fly high, 'tis a sign of clear sky; When they fly low prepare for a blow. When the swallow buildeth low, You can safely reap and sow. When the peacock loudly bawls, Soon we'll have both rain and squalls. If birds in autumn grow tame, The winter will be cold for game. If the Hovember goose-bone be thick, So will the winter weather be; If the November goose-bone be thin, So will the winter weather be. So long as kingfishers are sitting on their eggs, no storm or tempest will disturb the ocean. From the Article TALES ONCE TOLD appearing in the Book, BIRDS IN OUR LIVES. PUBLISHED BY THE ORNITHOLOGY GROUP. OUTDOOR NATURE CLUB. HOUSTON. TEXAS REGULAR OG FIELD TRIP TO EAGLE LAKE PRAIRIE CHICKEN REFUGE. MARCH 3 and Sarah Gordon by Melba Drake Twenty-four intrepid birders were "up with the chickens" - more accurately up BEFORE the chickens - on a cold and windy Sunday morning, March 3rd, for the OG Field Trip to the Eagle Lake Prairie Chicken Refuge. The group was led by Mr. Tom Waddell, Warden, and our Field Trip Chairman, David Marrack. After meeting at 6:15 A. M. at the square in Eagle Lake, the group drove to the Refuge area. On ranch land near the Refuge numerous chickens were sighted. We were asked to stay in the cars and I dare say with the cold north wind blowing over the prairie there were few objections as the chickens approached near enough for good viewing. Unfortunately, the majority of the chickens in sight were males and they acted singularly uninspired to display without their ladies present. Only half-hearted attempts at drumming were made. Mr. Waddell showed us the boundaries of the Refuge but road conditions would not permit any traveling through the area. He told us also that ranchers in the area cooperated in protecting the birds from hunters. After a breakfast and/or coffee break at the Sportsman Motel-, Dave Marrack led the group out Highway 102 in search of Sandhill Cranes and Sandhill Cranes there were - in the hundreds I We had fine.views of the cranes feeding and in flight and particularly outstanding at close range was the lovely red color of their heads. Many large flocks of geese were seen all morning. Along Highway 102, among one such large flock mid Snows, Blues and White-fronteds the Lesser and Greater Canada and Ross' goose were spotted. The group went their separate ways back to Houston, most birding along the way back. Some of the more appealing birds that we heard of were a large group of White- crowned Sparrows and the "Brasita de fuego" - the Vermilion Flycatcher.
