Transcript ■IIIIIHIIHmiHHlHIHHWIrlllimilltHll October Clearing House towards base but without any trace of yellow. The primaries seemed to be very thinly edged with rufous but this was hardly noticeable. Underparts appeared clean white, but could not see undertail. Field guides give only sketchy information about juv. cuckoos. Apparently some juv. Yellow-billed can have dusky mandibles. The almost complete lack of rufous in the wings, however, seems to strongly favor Black-billed. Broad-tailed Hummingbird - Donna Maddox October 21-28,1996 Selasphorus hummingbird, probably an immature male. Green head, back, and tail. Long slightly decurved black bill. Long rounded tail with all tail feathers tipped with white - no rufous in tail. Breast white. Flank pale peach. Throat has finely diffused vertical streaking. The gorget feathers appear to be molting in on the sides ofthe throat giving a comma effect. No color is apparent. Observed in the shade with a spotting scope. Still present as of report date. Couch's Kingbird - J. & W. Risser October 20, 1996 At Brazos Bend SP. Kingbird with a bright yellow abdomen, yellow undertail coverts (slightly duller), yellowbreast washed with olive. Head gray with pale gray chin, throat, malar region. Dark ear coverts. Medium-sized bill, thick at base. Back olive yellow. Wings brown with paler feather edges. Tail notched. No white on lateral tail feathers. Called twice. Emphatic "pip-pip". Perched upright, sallying out for insects. Gray-cheeked Thrush - D. Verser October 6, 1996 Under low hanging oak limbs in motte at Smith Point. Robin like with pale underparts and heavily spotted breast. Upperparts uniform gray brown from head to tail. Did not have red tail as does Hermit. Face evenly gray without eye-ring. Did not have any buffy tones in face like Swainson's. Scarlet Tanager - D. Verser October 6, 1996 The first at Anahuac willows. Larger and more sedate that the warblers. Heavy body with large thick pinkish bill. Entire underside lemon yellow with some diffuse dark smudges. Black wings with nobars. Thin yellow eye-ring. Dark gray, forked tail. A Summer Tanager also appeared and was burnt orange overall with the wings just a little darker and grayer than the rest of the body. From another vantage point two Scarlet Tanagers were visible. Both had very black wings and this view generally appeared more olive than pure yellow. One had particularly jet black wings and a grayish bill. Later in the day another Scarlet Tanager was at Smith Point. It was also very yellow with black wings. Similar description was provided by D. Sarkozi for 1 bird at High Island. 11
