Transcript page 17 species. Bird was calm, almost sluggish—leisurely eating caterpillars,primarily in Hercules club trees along road. Would perch on bare limbs while eating, apparently watching us. Over 15 minutes of actual observation. Warm, partly cloudy, good light. 7 x 35, 8 x 40 binoculars, as close as 15 ft. Also seen by Steve Schultz. Bird was unmistakable. I am familiar with the bird from Florida and the Tortugas. —P. D. Hulce— Vireo, Black-whiskered: Seen on May 3 on Nottingham Ranch Road. In a small flock of passerines moving up and down road were 3 red-eyed vireo types. One had distinct dark malar stripes, most noticeable when head was turned toward observer. —Will Risser— Warbler, Brewster's: Bird was very close (5 ft.). We were viewing it out of window in young mulberry tree. We thought it was a golden-wing as we saw gold on wings first, then realized there was no black on throat; in fact, bird was completely white underneath except for a small patch of yellow on breast. Yellow on top of head and black line through eye. —Jane & John Hamilton— Redstart, Painted: Seen for 30-40 seconds at 1:30 p.m. on May 15 at Smith Woods, High Island! Weather was fair, east wind. No optical equipment, but seen from 15-20 ft. on branch of live oak and in canopy. Warbler size, black body, black breast, red belly, white outer tail feathers. No vocalization. Also seen by Mr.&Mrs. Josiah Perocho II. We have not seen the species before. —Robert L. Sylvester, Jr.— Grosbeak, Black-headed: No status on checklist for this date (5/25). Female (probably in its second year), basically a typical female grosbeak with these definitive characteristics—very broad cinnamon-buff band across breast, fading to buffy wash along sides with tinge of lemon-yellow. Underwing linings yellow, belly and crissum off-white, unstreaked. Thin streaks on flanks, with wider but very few streaks on breast. Crown with broad olive stripe, eye-stripe pure white, back sparsely striped in dark brown, rump olive-brown, one full wingbar white, second wingbar only half-length. Bird was not compared directly with a rose- breasted, but a female rose-breasted was caught less than 30 min. after the black-headed was released, so there was a good opportunity to compare the differences. The black-headed was not seen again but the female rose-breasted was later seen in the company of a second female and 2 male rose-breasteds. —Tony Gallucci— sparrow, Sharp-taileds Several birds were heard singing at Bolivar Flats through late April. On the early morning of April 20 I heard the same voice at the Flats. I chased the bird down to be sure that I was not mistaking another voice. The bird was a sparrow with narrow pointed tail. The plumage pattern was reminiscent of a long-billed marsh wren—dark solid cap, white streaks on back, rusty patches on wings—otherwise, the bird had a bright buffy-orange eyeline extending onto the neck, a dark triangular face patch, orange cheek patch, white throat, buffy unmarked breast band. —Tony Gallucci—
