Our Program Chairman, Leota Stilwell, has arranged to have Mr. Horace Jeter (a Louisiana ornithologist) show us some interesting color movies of his travels in Colorado and Louisiana. Lot's all show our appreciation of Loota's sfforts in preparing such entertainment and have a record-breaking attendance at our meeting. Those who have belonged to the group for a long time and have not been coming to the meetings should make it a point to attend. We also hope new members will attend so they can get acquainted with their fellow members. The Christmas count plans will be announced and anyone interested should be at the meeting for assignment to one of the greups making the count. Jimmy Murray, Chairman. Monthly Field Trip - Sunday November 25th Meet at 8:00 a.m. at Soars Parking Lot, South Wayside and Harrisburg Blvd. We plan to cover the Sheldon Reservoir and Lake Houston areas with stops at Buekhern Lake and "The Hurrays" summer eemp on the San Jacinto River for pienie lunch. ORNITHOLOGY GROUP REPORTS Field Trip to Cypress-Katy-Hoekloy area, Oetober 14 - (C. B. Gilman) Although not a regularly scheduled field trip, nevertheless, by reason of the very efficient functioning of a capable telephone committee, an interesting and profitable (bird- wise) caravan was enjoyed by the largest group to participate during the current season. The meeting place was at Cypress, and the time eleven in the morning. Before leaving the point of assembly we were favored by the sight of a Yellow-shafted flicker, and started our lists therewith, together with Barn swallows, Loggerhead shrikes, Blue jays and the usual eommon species. The reute then led northwest to Hockley where we turned east toward the Bob Robertson ranch. We had not driven far before a fine specimen of Barred owl presented itself for our inspeetien, and a Red-tailed hawk was seen. At a spot near the ranch house, and between two ponds, we wore fortunate enough to find tho Clay-eolored sparrow, and found the first wator birds - Common egret, Coot, Blue-winged teal. We also had the pleasure of watehing a Nutria in one of the ponds. With Mrs. Sally Longenbaugh acting as guide, we then headed west to her ranch and the pienie grounds whieh proved to be an ideal spot for birding. Within this area were seen many water and shore birds including Great Blue, Green and Trioolored herons; Glossy Ibis; Blue, Canada, Snow and White-fronted geeae; Pintail dueks and Blue-winged teal; Aveeets; Dowitehers; Westera Sandpiper; Greater and Lessor Yellowlegs and Common snipe.
