Announcing the first Weekender of the upcoming Fall Season. Once again Mel Cooksey and Larry Jordan will host a program focused on migrating shorebirds to the Texas Coast. This Weekender will be held at the Comfort Inn on Ennis Joslin Road in Corpus Christi, but the dates are earlier at the request of Mel. Mel notes that the height of shorebird migration on our coast is in mid-August, so he requested to do this program on the weekend of August 15-17, 2014. Once again this event will be capped at 30 participants and the fee will be $75.00. Unfortunately I will be out of the country at that time so I need those interested in attending to notify me and pay before the 9th of August at the below address. This will secure your space. Last year’s workshop was a major success with everyone expressing their gratitude to Mel and his helpers. A Friday evening class will be followed by a Saturday morning field trip. Saturday afternoon the group will reconvene for another class, followed by a late afternoon field trip. The final event will be another field trip on Sunday morning. To sign up for this class please email me at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it and I will hold you place for this Weekender.

The Texas Ornithological Society and the Texas Birding Community at large has suffered a great loss with the passing of Steve Gross. Steve Gross was a dedicated educator both as a professional and in the birding world. He was a mentor to many of all ages in Texas Birding. Many will be familiar with Steve's work with the Rockport young birder's big day Bird-a-thon to raise money for our sanctuaries.  Less well known was Steve was the first to volunteer to assist with summer workshops to aid teachers in introducing more young people to birds.
