Transcript Volume 44, No. 1 January 1995 The Spoonbill Published by The Ornithology Group, Outdoor Nature Club, Houston Membership Meeting "Rancho del Cielo" Lawrence V. Lof Date: Monday, February 6 Location: Bayland Community Center, 6400 Bissonnet Time: 7:00 p.m. Pre-meeting Learning Comer to hear Karen Beekman discuss "Winter Birds of Lake Tawokoni Area" at 6:30 p.m. A native of Brownsville, Lawrence V. Lof, became involved with Rancho del Cielo first as a student and president of the Gorgas Science Society, then as a full-time volunteer in the program. For 18 years, he served as Associate Director, eventually becoming Director of the Biology Station Program. Mr. Lof is a member of the faculty of the Natural Science Department at the University of Texas at Brownsville. A charter member of the Board of Directors of the Gorgas Science Foundation, Mr. Lof was instrumental in the establishment of the foundation. Chairman's Message I trust you all attended as many Christmas Counts as possible in December. I was glad to see many people new to this endeavor join me in Area Two on the OG's Houston Count. We were treated to about 20 Sprague's Pipits spiraling up, up and away at the Houston Raceway parking lot. This is the same place where we have seen Sprague's Pipit for the last five years. A few lucky souls did get extended views of a pipit on the ground in good light. Now might be a good time to make a New Year's Resolution to learn sparrows. Get out and meet them on their own field or hedgerow. When I first began birding, sparrows fit into three categories. 1) Sparrows that flew a long distance when flushed. These were good sparrows because no time or thought was wasted trying to identify them. 2) Sparrows that just sat on a fence or wire allowing a close approach and a slight glimmer of hope that identification might just happen this time. It never did. 3) Sparrows that were not sparrows, but looked like sparrows to me. You know the kind...female Red-winged Blackbirds, house "sparrows," female Brown-headed Cowbirds, or any other small brown bird. If you missed the OG's January sparrow trips, do not despair. Saturday, February 4th, I will lead a trip for Pineywoods Wildlife Society (Meet at 7:30 a.m. Bear Creek Park jogging trail parking lot). Saturday, February 11th, David Veselka and I will lead another OG "Youth" field trip to west Harris County. (Meet at 8:00 a.m. Bear Creek Park jogging trail parking lot.) If you bring a young birder, you are more than welcome to attend. If you bring a youthful spirit and an eagerness to learn sparrows, we won't say no and you will be setting a good example for our younger participants. Finally, on Saturday, February 25, John Eriksson will lead an OG field trip to Waller County in search of sparrows and other birds of the prairie. Check the calendar for details. If you are unable to attend any of these helpful events, you can still do it the old-fashioned way...no, not with a gun.but with your field guide and a map of west Harris County that can be purchased at our regular monthly meetings. May all your sparrows be adult White-crowned. David Bradford
