APRIL BIRDING IN CENTRAL TEXAS by Janet Kepner Easter weekend I spent on a ranch near Kerrville and, having splendid weather, I thoroughly enjoyed the biirding. Outside the cabin in a rock wall were a pair of Rock Wrens who were terrifically busy feeding seven youngsters who were almost grown and constantly venturing about. In canyons there were many Summer Tanagers, Red-eyed Vireos and Cardinals. Black-chinned Hummingbirds were feeding on buckeye blossons. There were at least six Canyon Wrens nesting or feeding in a limestone cliff. In tall sycamores and on rocks were American Goldfinches and in a low rocky, brushy area were a pair of little Rufous-crowned Sparrows tending their nest. The male beat his tail frantically and chanted in a tiny voice when one approached-too close.to the nest. An Osprey sat on treetops near the lake each day. Nearby were a few Blue Grosbeaks, Black-crested Titmice, Ash-throated Flycatchers, Purple Finches, House Finches, Lesser Goldfinches, Chickadees, Eastern Phoebes, and Ladder-backed Woodpeckers. In meadows were wild Turkeys, Inca Doves, a large flock of Brown-ljeaded Cowbirds, many Chipping Sparrows, Lark Sparrows, Scissor-tailed Flycatchers, and Mourning Doves. T saw one Smith's Longspur in the upland meadows and several Vermilion Flycatchers. Since this ranch once belonged to Howard Lacey, a birder who I understand was an expert on Golden- cheeked Warblers, I was disappointed in not being able to find one. I also saw a large jay-sized bird, completely brown with a silky texture sort of like a Cedar Wax- wing's coat. Very strong, large jay-like beak (think gray) and a distinct black eye. No crest. Tail ended ia three scallops. It flitted about a stream in a canyon, then took a bath, noes anvone know what this bird could be?
