The Ornithology Group (OG) of the Outdoor Nature Club is a group whose mission is to promote the study and appreciation of wild birds and encourage their conservation.  We are comprised of individuals of every degree of expertise, from beginning birders to experts.  Some members focus on bird identification and listing, some enjoy studying bird behavior and habitat, and some just enjoy watching birds. The OG is organized to accommodate all of these diverse birding interests.  All of these members benefit from the synergism of getting together to share knowledge and interests during the club's activities.  OG activities make learning about birds fun!

Regular monthly meetings feature a wide variety of local and nationally recognized speakers. The first 15 to 20 minutes of each meeting are devoted to club business and sharing information. The remainder of the meeting is reserved for the featured speaker. Guests and new members are always welcome and the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. Monthly meetings also feature an informal discussion session called the Learning Corner to enhance member birding skills, and offer special information about local birding. It begins 30 minutes before the regular meeting and is an alternative to the always-popular activity of socializing and comparing recent birding war stories during this pre-meeting time.

Our monthly newsletter, The Spoonbill, announces group activities, reports group business, and presents articles of birding interest. The Spoonbill includes The Clearing House, a monthly record of bird sightings along the Upper Texas Coast.
