Please join us, 9:00 am to noon, at the Bolivar Flats traffic barricade with hat, gloves, insect repellent and two willing hands to help clean our sanctuary. To get to Bolivar Flats take the ferry from Galveston to Bolivar Peninsula. Drive 3.7 miles and turn right on Retilon Rd.

We still need a librarian. Gail Luckner introduced local ornithologkt Bob McFarlane. Bob presented the results of hk urban breeding and wintering bird surveys. The questionaire he developed for the Audubon Society "Naturalkt" was the bask for hk research. He divided the criteria into: 1) urban vs rural; 2) habitat: park-like, open field and forest canopy; and 3) summer vs winter. ___OPEN HOUSE EXTENDED AT BRAZORIA NATIONAL WILDLIFE REFUGE. Open house, scheduled the first full weekend of each month will be expanded because of increased interest. Over 20,000 Snow Geese are wintering on the refuge, many can be observed using the grit pad early in the morning. Over 25,000 ducks are using the refuge, shovelers and pintail are common on Olney Pond. Numerous Sandhill Cranes can be seen roosting around Olney Pond early in the morning and feeding in the mowed pastures later in the day. Some shorebirds are occurring in the tidal mud flats such as Willet, dowitchers, curlews, and avocets. Bob shared many interesting behaviors of both humans and the urban birds that benefit from human behavior. Of particular interest was what Bob called "contagious behavior." One neighbor decides to plant some trees and the surrounding neighbors follow the lead, thus a park-like setting k produced. He ako noted how humans create foraging habitat by mowing their lawns scattering seeds to the concrete providing easy pickings for Inca and Mourning Doves, grackles and House Sparrows. Bob's fascinating presentation increased awareness of the valuable information that can be gleaned from backyard birding. Christine Bourgeok, Secretary i
