Transcript HCSB sjs=a VOLUME XI No. 6 OCTOBER 1962 * ♦•it************************** * "The decline of hunting opportunity .... is * * causing more than one wildlife administrator to cast * * covetous eyes at modern shore bird numbers and * * suggest that they could again stand hunting. This * * must be opposed firmly because shore bird habits * * make them particularly vulnerable to hunting pressure.* * The small egg clutch, and the inability to renest in * * the north's short summer, result In an annual repro- * * ductive success of only 25$ Instead of the 50$ which * * is usual with gallinaceous game birds. The shore bird* * migrations are so long and hazardous that they place * * special stress on the population; and the fact that * * these birds do not resort to cover, often fly in * * flocks, are easy to decoy, and concentrate on now much* * reduced feeding areas during migration, all combine to* * make it unthinkable that they should again be sub- * * jected to gunning pressure within our borders." * Roland C. Clement * * Introduction to A GATHERING OF SHORE BIRDS Henry Marion Hall * -x- * * * * # * ********** PUBLISHED BY THE ORNITHOLOGY GROUP, OUTDOOR NATURE CLUB, HOUSTON, TEXAS November 6 (Tuesday) November 18 (Sunday) December 6 (Thursday) COMING EVENTS Audubon Wildlife Film, VILLAGE BENEATH THE SEA by Harry Pederson, Prudential Auditorium, 1100 Holcombe Blvd., 8:00 P.M.
