Transcript 2 VOLUME XXI, NO. 9 JANUARY, 1973 PUBLISHED BY THE ORNITHOLOGY GKOTTf, OUTDOOR NATURE CLUB, HOUSTON, TEXAS' "THE INCREDIBLE FLIGHT OF THE SNOW GOOSE" - by Dirk Hagemeyer Those who saw my slide show on the Churchill area In Canada might remember my remarks about the Australian wildlife photographer team, Jen and Des Bartlett, whom I met at Churchill and spent several weeks with on the tundra. They were the ones who had snow geese and a sandhill crane "Fred", all born from wild birds in the North, as company. I just got word from the Bartlett's that "The Incredible Flight of the Snow Goose" is the title of their 1-hour TV-Special to be shown on NBC-TV (Channel 2 in Houston) on January 23rd at 7 P.M. (but you'd best check your TV Guide on the time to be sure and not miss it.) They themselves are not too well satisfied with the editing done in England (quote: "there are too many Bartlett's in it"). However, having met them and knowing their dedication to everything wild as well as their technical skills, I am certain that this show should be a real treat. Don't miss it. MIGRATORY BIRD MINTING STAMPS (AND FIRST EDITION PRINTS) ON EXH±Bt___ Now, through February 13th, in the Herman Brown Auditorium of the Houston Museum of Natural Science, are the prints and resultant duck stamps: the following is copied from information furnished, entitled "Art For Conservation": "The creation of the duck stamp, as the Migratory Bird Hunting Stamp is popularly known, was a dramatic event in conservation history. For decades preceding the first stamp in 1934, the nation's migratory waterfowl had been declining at an alarming rate, despite efforts of the federal government, conservationista and sportsmen to halt the bird's plummet toward extinction. The mandatory purchase by hunters of federal duck stamps was instrumental in providing funds to buy, develop and maintain refuges across the country. The finest wildlife artists in the country are selected to illustrate the stamp. For the first 15 years the design of the stamp was commissioned by the committee administering the Duck Stamp Act. In 1949, the selection of art to provide the motif for the stamp shifted from commission to an annual contest, which Is now open to all interested artists. Art—in the form of superb illustrations of the birds the Act intended to conserve—has become an effective weapon in the battle to preserve North America's wildlife heritage. The black and white series of duck stamp prints (1934-69) is among the most sought after and select art collection of migratory birds in the world. This fine collection of first edition prints and stamps is on loan to the Houston Museum of Natural Science from Mrs, Albert B. Fay. It is one of only thirty complete sets in existence and has taken years to assemble." The Herman Brown Auditorium will "ho opon during i^egular museum hours.
