Transcript Estates Road (DE); San Bernard NWR (SB); Sabine Uoods (SW); West Harris County (WHC); Yacht Basin Road (YB); LIST OF COUNT CODES: Brazoria (BR); Chambers (CH); Fort Bend (FB); Galveston (GA); Harris (HA); Jefferson (JE); Upper Texas Coast (U); Waller (WA) Purple Gallinule - J. Uhittle November 21, 1992 Observed in the canal on the south-southeast side of Shoveler Pond at Anahuac NUR from a distance of 15 to 20 feet with 7X35 binoculars. The bird was feeding and walking on vegetation growing on surface of the canal. The bird was the size of a Moorhen, and of similar shape, but with longer legs and very long toes'. The basic color was a vivid bluish-purple, especially on the neck and breast, with bluish-green wings. The undertail coverts were bright white, and frequently displayed. The outer 1/2 of the bill was yellow, the rest was red with a light blue forehead shield. It had bright yellow long legs with very long toes. Burrowing Owl - U. Pruess, R. Leigon November 16, 1992 Small injured owl was found on the ground in a landscaped garden in front of a two-story building near industrial complex in Freeport, TX. Bird was unable to stand. A small owl with no ear tufts, yellow eyes, mottled buffy to brown plumage mostly spotted over the crown and nape, mostly barred in wings and tail. Lightly barred on the breast and belly. A dark brown "collar" extended across mostly white plumage throat. Cream colored plumage extended less than 1/2 down the proportionately long legs. Bird was cared for by TWRC rehabiIitator, but died after 48 hours. Ash-throated Flycatcher - J. Morgan November 14, 1992 At end of Harper's Church Rd. Responded to owl tape. Small myiarchus flycatcher with relatively small, all black bill, very pale gray throat and pale yellow lower belly. Crown. <md upperparts mouse gray-brown. Tail with much rufous, but black outer webs wrapped around to inner webs at tail tip. Extensive rufous in wings, plus two whitish wing bars. Bird called repeatedly, a quick, mellow "prrt", very well-known to the observer. Seen for 5 minutes in excellent light as close as 5m. Ash-throated Flycatcher - R. Thacker November 7, 1992 Observed at about 5 pm on the Scissor-tail Trail at San Bernard NUR. Bird had a very pale yellow lower belly and a gray throat. Tail was reddish brown. Had bright rust color on side of wing near breast. Two white wing bars. Smallish bill unlike Brown-crested Flycatcher. Yellow on belly did not seem bright enough to be a Great-crested Flycatcher. Had a crest which it raised in response to "pishing". Great-crested Flycatcher - G. LaVern November 7, 1992 Bird was herded along Scissortail Trail, where it continued to flycatch and perch tamely on sunlit branches. Bird showed contrast between thick brown crest, ash-gray throat, mouse-gray nape, brown-gray back and lemon yellow belly. Red-bronze in folded primaries and fanned tail from tip to base. Heavy bill with black of upper and lower mandibles broken by orange at base of lower mandible and extending along outer edges as thin line halfway to tip. Viewed with 20X spotting scope. Mountain Bluebird - P.D. Hulce November 21, 1992 A beautiful, ethereal azure-bluebird. Much lighter blue than eastern bluebird, with no brown or red markings or color anywhere. Underparts tighter than upperparts. Pale or eggshell blue on the breast, lightening to bluish-white on the belly. Appeared longer than Eastern Bluebird. Observed sitting and flying from barbed wire fence over short grazed pasture. Seen at northeast corner of Roberts Rd. and Bauer-Hockley Rd., north of 290. About 10 observers, as close as 30 feet. Relocated and photographed on November 22, 1991 at the same location. Notes were also submitted by Robert Schwartz for Mountain Bluebird at this time and location. Pyrrhuloxia - P.D. Hulce November 21, 1992 Large gray cardinal-like birds, with yellow beaks; wispy, long crests; wings and tail showed extensive cranberry. Observed on Mathis Rd. Notes were also submitted for a sighting near the above location on November 27 by this observer. Black-throated Gray Uarbler - R. Thacker November 7, 1992 Observed about 9 am at the Big Slough in Brazoria county just past the small cemetery. Uas observed in a small flock of passerines including Ruby-crowned Kinglets and a Uilson's Uarbler sitting on an exposed branch in a live oak tree. A black and white warbler with a bright yellow spot between the eye and the bill. It had a black throat and a black and ihite patterned head with white belly and gray back. Fox Sparrow - J. Morgan November 8, 1992 Early fall arrival date. Attracted to bird by well-known "clock" call note. Large sparrow, primarily rufous with gray head and bicolor bill (lower mandible yellow). Heavy rufous splotching on white breast; rufous rump and tail. Seen in heavy yaupon thicket in fair light at 6m for one minute with 10X42 binoculars. Reports on Yellow-throated Vireo by G. D. Luckner and Uestern Kingbird by J. Uhittle were submitted, but are not published in entirety because of space. Those observers are thanked for their reports.
