Hay 14: OG WEEKDAY FIELD TRIP TO GALVESTON ISLAND. We'll be covering several areas of the island for shorebirds and passerines and expect to see both migrants and slimier residents.

We hope to get a key to allow us to drive into the forest, BUT WE WILL HAVE TO LOCK THE GATE BEHIND US, SO BE PUNCTUAL. We will spend the early morning hours birdwatching, looking for Piney Woods specialties such as Red-cockaded Woodpecker and Brown-headed Nuthatch, This will also be a good opportunity to become more familiar with some of the songs and calls of east Texas birds. Later in the morning we will study the abundant damselflies and dragonflies at the ponds, expecting to see Blue-fronted Dancer, Comet Darner, Prince Baskettail, Roseate Skimmer, Calico Pennant and more. (The ONC program on May 14 will help prepare you for the second part of this field trip; you may also want to pick up copies of Sid Dunkle's excellent field guides to florida dragonflies and damselflies.)
