Muschalek September 9, 1993 A very smalt rail similar in size to a Sora, but with a long down-curved bill. The bird had grayish cheeks; black and white lines on its sides; and a long pale bill. Seemed much smaller than the numerous Clapper Raits that were also present. Seen for 4 minutes at 15 feet. Broad-billed Hummingbird - Mary A. Tucker September 28, 1993 Observed in backyard at feeder and flowers for about 1 hour with 10X binoculars. Bird was larger than the Ruby-throated Hummingbirds also in the area. Bill was long, slightly decurved, red upper and lower and darker at tip. Bird was green on the back, throat gorget flashed blue, green splashed on a gray belly and black tail was seen spread as the bird hovered. Bird was very vocal. Buff-betlied Hummingbird - B. House September 1, 1993 Large hummingbird feeding in a bed of Turk's Cap with smaller Ruby-throated Hummingbirds. First noticed by loud raspy call. Solid rufous tail, green back, green throat, bottom half of abdomen light tan color, bill orange/coral color with black tip. Seen over several hours with and without binoculars. Black-chinned Hummingbird - P.D. Hulce September 7-10, 1993 Typical immature Archilochus. Long, slightly decurved, black bill. Extensive dark area in tail before white tips. Bird continuously bobbed tail while hovering at feeder. Flash of violet from developing lower gorget feathers. Say's Phoebe - J. Uhittle September 29, 1993 Bird was first observed flying across a rice field at distance. It was eventually observed from a distance of 10 feet. Upon landing the bird fanned its tail and then pumped the tail up and down. Medium small flycatcher. A small crest was occasionally observed. The bird was brownish black above with a definite demarcation between darker brownish black above the eye and a Iighter grayish color on the lower face. The eye was dark. The wings were blackish with a "washed out" gray wing bar. The edges of the primary feathers were also a lighter gray, giving the impression of a white horizontal "bar" when perched. The throat and breast were light gray, giving way to a cinnamon-reddish belly. The tail was black, slightly rounded and showed some feather wear/damage at the tip. The bill was medium length, sharp and black. The legs were black. Solitary Vireo - Mike Austin September 29, 1993 Blue head, white spectacles contrasting with olive head. Dark wings with two white wing bars. Uhite underparts with yellow flanks. Deliberate feeder. In mixed vireo flock with 3-4 White-eyed Vireos and 2 Yellow-throated Vireos. Audubon Uoods, High Island. Warbling Vireo - D. Muschalek September 4, 1993 Small vireo with trace of yellow along its sides and underparts. Thick bill and pale whitish eyebrow. White throat and breast eliminates Philadelphia Vireo. Seen at the Oryx Oil and at Audubon Uoods while feeding high in trees. Nashville Uarbler - D. Muschalek September 6, 1993 Small warbler with grayish head, white eye ring. Olive upperparts, yellow underparts with a whitish area between yellow belly and yellow undertail coverts. Tropical Parula - L. Hug, C. Corben September 17, 19, 1993 The upperparts were mostly dark blue-gray, including the top of the head, with a triangular area of yellowish-green on the mantle. There were two prominent white wing bars. The side of the face showed a solid black mask which extended from the bill, through the lores, around, or at least below the eye, to the ear coverts. This mask was very sharply defined along its lower margin where it bordered the yellow throat, but its upper border was less well defined, although it contrasted strongly with the gray of the rest of the head. There were no signs of any white feathering around the eye and this was a feature we repeatedly made special efforts to check on. However, at times the eye itself appeared pale through reflection (the actual eye color appeared black) and this tended to break up the solid appearance of the dark mask. The underparts were mostly bright yellow. This coloration extended from the chin down to just in front of the legs,. and it was crossed by a broad chest band of a deeper, more orange yellow. This band was not sharply defined and was often difficult to detect. There was no trace of any extension of the dorsal coloration onto or across the breast. The area from just in front of the legs to the undertail coverts was white, but in the best views all of this area seemed to be very lightly washed with yellow. This yellow tinge being the strongest between the legs. The undertail was mostly white with a narrow dark tip. The bill was black above and entirely bright yellow below,.not contrasting with the coloration of the throat. The color of the legs was not determined, although they looked dark against the background of the underparts. Scarlet Tanager - Hike Austin September 29, 1993 Lime green underparts and face. Smaller billed than Summer (which was in same tree, almost same binocular field, at the same time) with lower mandible yellow-flesh colored. Back and wings uniformly dark olive. More uniform underparts with none of the yellowish and orangish cast of Summer Tanager. Full sunlight for 30 sec. at 15 feet with 10X binoculars.
