Embarrassed by Empids? by Mel Cooksey Every soldier has a Waterloo. Every president a Watergate- Birders have Empidomax flycatchers. We are once again in the middle of Empid migrations. This article written for a Spring migration is also valid in Autumn. When a conversation turns to empids, many birders move discreetly to the other side ofthe room. For those of us who remain. I will attempt to provide a short outline of my experiences and methods of spring empidonax study in the Corpus Christi area, centering on North Padre Island to include the Packery Channel area. Arlie and I have spent an estimated 11,000-12,000 manhours (personhours?), not including feeder and yard watching, in these areas for the last ten years. We have kept what has become a rather large database of sighting records from this area. A secondary area of our interest has been Blucher Park in central Corpus Christi. Both spots are in Nueces County. Studying empidonax flycatchers on North Padre is not without problems at times. Certain days here are poor due to high winds. Certain other days are just plain poor. For instance, today I have seen exactly zero empids! Tomorrow, there may be dozens. Another factor to deal with here is the fact that neotropic migrants simply do not want to sing at all. It is difficult to get even a call note sometimes. Therefore, my methods for empid study involve eliciting responses to taped vocalizations. It is quite rare for any empid to sing "unprompted", and even rarer for any empid to sing for more than a few scant seconds! Such is the case vireos, warblers, etc. continued on page 5 In this issue Emphasis on Empids 1 OG News, Announcements & Notes . 2 A River Runs Through 3 What Frances Wrought 4
