Transcript Scenic Galveston continued... marvel to behold, because it enabled a group of 30-40 people to effectively clean a highly visible area along an interstate, and to enhance this increasingly valuable habitat for birds and other wildlife. This area is open to the public and meant to be enjoyed! And it will remain so! Take exit 6 off of 1-45 on your next visit to Galveston before you cross the causeway, and don't be too surprised if you see 50 or more species before you ever reach the bridge, much less the ferry to Bolivar. The 54 species that were tallied with the able assistance of Barbara Rapstein of GOS made the work go fast. The lunch prepared by Mary Faye Barnes and Ellie Childs was true rapture. Many thanks to everyone at Scenic Galveston, especially Lalise and Greg Mason, whom I met on a Christmas bird count (Thanks OG!). I enjoyed a beautiful morning of preservation, restoration, and birding. And I'm looking forward to doing it again! Scenic Galveston is on the web at www.ScenicGalveston.org. - Michael Williams OG FIELD TRIPS For more information on any of the field trips below, contact field trip coordinator Bill Saulmon at 281-537-6924 or at dean1960@aol.com. You can also check out this season's field trip schedule on the OG website. Saturday, November 20, 2004: Field Trip to Chappell Hill Area - Join our guest leader Darrell Vollert for a birding tour of the Clarann Estate just north of Chappell Hill. Darrell will also take us birding on a section of nearby Brazos River bottom. Both sites will be included in the upcoming TP&W Prairies and Pineywoods Wildlife Trail. Darrell has developed an interesting bird list for this area (including a rare wintering Louisiana Waterthrush last year). Meet Darrell at the Clarann Estate at 8:00 AM. To get there from Houston, drive northwest on US 290 to the intersection of FM1155 in Chappell Hill. Turn right (North) on FM 1155 and go about 1.1 miles to the entrance of Clarann Estate on the left (West) side of the road (look for the white fence). The entrance is marked by 6 brick columns and two iron gates. Enter through the right gate and go to the parking lot behind the first building. Allow about 70 minutes to drive there from the 610 loop. **No OG field trip is scheduled for December, so members can participate in the Houston Christmas Bird Count on Saturday, December 18, 2004. Report of September 18, 2004 Field Trip to Smith Point Summer weather returned with a vengeance for this trip to the Smith Point Hawk Watch. Hawk watching was on the slow side but we did manage to see 8 species of raptors from the tower, including migrating Broad-winged Hawks. There were also Magnificent Frigatebirds flying over the bay. Some members braved the heat & mosquitoes to look for passerine migrants in the adjacent Oak Mottes. We found Great Crested Flycatchers in abundance and also saw Black-and-white Warbler, American Redstart, Canada Warbler, Dickcissel and several other species of flycatchers. We concluded the trip with a visit to nearby Robbins Park on the bayshore. The expected gulls, terns, pelicans, waders, plovers & sandpipers were seen here. An obliging Clapper Rail posed up close for the group and allowed some great views. We concluded around noon with a bird list of about 60 species. —Bill Saulmon
