Transcript Strictly for the Bird-ers A Big Thank You from Ramiro! I cannot find the words to thank the OG for making it possible for me to participate in Victor Emanuel's camp for young birders in Texas, Camp Tejano. I have been birding around Houston and a little in the El Paso area, but this was my first chance to go to Big Bend and the Hill Country. What I experienced in Big Bend is indescribable. The park is awesome, beautiful and very interesting. I was so happy just being there. There is no one word to describe all the joy I experienced when I encountered so many new birds. We saw all the park's specialties, from Colima Warbler to White-eared Hummingbird Big Bend is probably the best place I have ever been birding, but the Texas Hill Country is an awesome place. At the H.E.B. camp we saw Golden-cheeked Warbler, Black- capped Vireo and Rufous-capped Warbler. Camp Tejano was the best experience I have ever had. I thank the Ornithology Group, David Bradford, David Veselka, Victor Emanuel and Gregory Butcher, executive director of the A.B.A.— everyone who has helped me develop my knowledge in ornithology. To you all my most sincere thanks. Ramiro Garcia Sabine Woods Field Trip September 30,1995: The weather was just too darned good for warblers and other migrants. No Mourning Warbler this day. A little rain and a headwind might have helped. Fifteen OGers and our good-humored leader Mike Austin tiptoed through the leaf Utter of Sabine Woods and checked out salt cedars on the road to Sea Rim State Park to find a total of 62 birds including one Worm-eating Warbler seen only by the leader. Uh-huh. In the woods we saw a smattering of American Redstarts, Black and White, Magnolia and Chestnut-sided Warblers, Acadian Flycatchers and Brown Thrashers. Some in the group who went cn to High Island added Tennessee, Wilson's, and Nashville Warblers. The wilctflower, Gaura lindheimeri, is tall and thick at Sabine Woods, and along with the Lantana camara, attracts numerous butterflies. The drab Long-tailed Skipper, many brilliant orange Gulf Fritillaries, Tiger Swallowtail, Pipevine Swallowtail sipping at the pink Salt Marshmallow, hairstreaks, sulphurs and Eastern Black Swallowtail were seen. Some birders brought their butterfly field guides. This is wise. Hot, sunny weather is prime time for butterflies! Judy Boyce OG Meeting Minutes October 2,1995: The meeting was brought to order by Dan Coleman. He announced that our meetings in November and December will be held at St. Philip's United Methodist Church due to remodeling of Bayland Community Center. Tom Lewis announced the October 18 Weekday Field Trip will be at Attwater's Prairie-Chicken NWR, and the November weekday trip has been changed from the 18th to the 17th. David Marrack offered red buckeye seeds and mulberry and Turks' Cap seedlings for those interested. Fred Collins of the Nature Discover Center in Bellaire announced upcoming program in the adult lecture series in October and November on bats and bird feeding. Vent Tour leader, Jeff Gordon, gave a wonderful program on the Dry Tortugas. Kate Fine, Secretary Free Publicity! Many thanks to Gloria and John Tveten for announcing OG meetings and speakers in their Nature Trails column. If you haven't seen their columns that celebrate Texas birds and birding, pick up the Houston Chronicle on Fridays. A Vote for Wildlife Nov. 7 Proposition 11 on the statewide ballot November 7 would, if approved, amend the Texas Constitution so that open-space land which is actively devoted to wildlife management could qualify for ad valorem tax exemptions in the same manner as agricultural land. Proposition 11 would make wildlife management more attractive to landowners because they could have both an agricultural exemption and an exemption for wildlife management at the same time. It would end the penalty of losing their agricultural exemption if they take special steps to save wildlife. Proposition 11 would assist in the preservation and nurturing of endangered species like Whooping Cranes, the Golden- cheeked Warbler, Peregrine Falcon and the many migratory birds that move through Texas. This proposed amendment is endorsed by the National Audubon Society, the Audubon Council of Texas, and a number of environmental, agricultural and landowner groups. Beach Cleanup Tally Saturday, September 16: 9,940 volunteers picked up 180.9 tons of trash off Texas beaches. Found on Texas beaches in among the usual plethora of plastic trash: a live mouse in a beer bottle, a box of crayons from China, an 8-foot-long disposable aircraft fuel tank, a TV set and a dead seagull entangled in fishing net. There will be another cleanup in the spring. Be there!
