Paul Jones Black-billed Cuckoo: Bird was reported to me by Mrs. Brannon at Smith's Woods on the IIth. On the 18th I observed the bird at Smith's Woods. It was seen in good light with 10x50 binoculars. Brown above, white below, black bill, small tail spots, no rufous In wing. —David Dauphin Barn Owl: Flew beside and then across Stewart Road In front of car. Good view in fine moonlight about 10:30 PM. —David Marrack Chimney Swift: During August the birds failed to have second successful nesting, but are still coming to my chimney at night. —David Marrack Eastern Phoebe: These individuals are early according to the UTC Checklist. Drab gray above, dull white underparts. No wingbars and no eye-ring. Sitting on wires and treetops flycatcher fashion. —Jim Morgan House Wren: Small, brown, no facial stripes. Bird sang some, light with 10x50 binoculars. —David Dauphin bserved 1n exce11ent Short-billed Marsh Wren: A small wren rather dark and buffy-slded flying from tussocks of grass ahead of the marsh buggy on the rail trips. Although details were skimpy, Russ Clapper and TBF concluded It was this species. Identification based on numerous observations In same habitat and conditions by both observers. —Ben Feltner Swainson's Warbler: Small brown warbler feeding on the ground. Light superciliary stripe and yellowish buff flanks noted. Observed by numerous birders present. This represents a later date than is indicated on the checklist, but it is probable fall data on this bird Is incomplete. Mike Hoke has reported netting them considerably later in the year than this.

Ben Feltner Black-throated Blue Warbler: Dull, olive-brown above; very light brown below; light eyellne over eye; definite dark olive-brown auricular contrasting sharply with the light throat; obscure but visible wing spots. —Ted Eubanks, Jr. Black-throated Blue Warbler: Female warbler sitting in a chair at dawn. Picked up and fed by hand—released in a warm corner. It was gone some 3 hours later, identified by white wing "patch". —David Marrack LE CONTE'S SPARROW: A short-tailed very light buffy collared sparrow flushed several times in front of marsh buggy on the Rail trips. Although observation was limited to the flying bird, several observers concluded separately that the bird was a Le Conte's Sparrow.
