Transcript Harris Hawk - D. Bradford October 2,1994 One adult within 30 meters of the top of a telephone pole. Dark buteo with red on the shoulders. White at base of tail and a white terminal tail band. Bird did not fly. Lesser Black-backed Gull - J.&W. Risser This bird caught our attention because of its dark gray back and its size, somewhat smaller than nearby juvenile and adult Herring Gulls, but significantly larger than adjacent Laughing Gulls. Also noteworthy was its long rear profile, with wings projecting far beyond its tail tip. Its bill was rather thin, without a noticeable bulge at the tip. Bill was light gray with dark tip. Legs were light yellow. In flight, the noteworthy characters were its dark wing without light areas. The outer wing was black. The back was dark gray, the rump and tail were white, and there was a subterminal dark, tail band. Sketch submitted Bonaparte's Gull - P.D. Hulce October 14,1994 Small light gull with fairly buoyant flight. Smaller than Laughing Gulls. Bright white primary feathers. Slightly rounded wings with no apparent black in tips or elsewhere. White head with small dark dot behind the eye. Thin dark bill. Flying above surf off Hwy. 87 between High Island and Sabine. Black Tern - J. Whittle October 21,1994 Intracoastal Waterway at end of Yacht Basin Rd. Small tern, smaller than the accompanying Forster's Terns. These birds were easily picked out in the flock by the uniformly gray upper wings, body and upper tail. The underwings were uniformly pale gray. There was a dark spot behind the eye, and a dark bar on the side on the breast, from the join of the wing leading edge and body down. Tail was forked. Bill was dark. Black-billed Cuckoo - J. Whittle October 9.1994 Candy Abshier WMA. Typical cuckoo shape and size. The back was brown, including the upper surface of the outer wings, observed both at rest and in flight. The underparts were white. The eye and eye-ring were carefully studied; the eye appeared dark the eye ring was a dark brown The under surface of the tail was a very pale gray, with a hint of brown, with essentially no markings. The bill was seen very clearly and both mandibles were completely dark gray. Yellow-billed Cuckoo - J. Whittle October 30,1994 At willows on Shoveler Pond Rd. Anahuac NWR. Typical cuckoo. Brown above, white below, with red on primaries as seen on the upper wing. Long dark tail above; below had white spots on dark gray. Dark upper mandible; yellow lower mandible. Cave Swallow - J.&W. Risser October 29,1994 One at Attwater over Teal Marsh. Dark, blue-backed swallow with square tail. Buffy rump. Dark forehead Buffy throat and side of face. No black in throat - color pale buff. White underparts. Veery - D. Muschalik October 1,1994 Two russet-backed thrushes located at Smith Oaks Sanctuary. Birds were much redder on their backs than the nearby Swainson's Thrush. Birds had very indistinct spotting on upper breast, and had no buffy cheeks or eyerings. Worm-eating Warbler - J. Whittle October 18,1994 Sabine Woods. Relatively large warbler with long pointed bill. The bird appeared to be a dull buff below. The upper parts were brownish. The head and crown showed two black stripes through the buff of the crown and a black stripe through each eye, all four stripes extending through the nape, ending sharply at the upper back. Scarlet Tanager - D. Muschalek October 1,1994 Nine birds seen at Smith Oaks Sanctuary at High Island. Male birds had black wings with greenish backs and yellowish underparts. Females and immatures had brownish wings with greenish backs and dull yellow underparts. Feeding actively in mid canopy of oaks and hackberries. The Spoonbill, November 1994
