Transcript 11 Swainson's Hawk (Buteo swainsoni) We are just east of the normal breeding range for this species, so a nest on the UTC would be very usual but possible. Any nests or migratory concentrations are of interest. Ferruginous Hawk (Buteo regalis) Occasionally nests in the Panhandle (six records). Any areas of regular use or migratory concentrations are of interest. Southeastern American Kestrel (Falco sparverius paulus) ^B oberholser describes this subspecies as, "Similar to T.s. sparverius [our common Kestrel] but considerably smaller; in male, dark spots on lower surface confined mostly to sides of body, leaving middle abdomen immaculate." This will be difficult to identify in the field. There is a winter record from Chambers County. All confirmed signtings are of interest. Western Snowy Plover (Charadrius alexandrinus nivosus) Southeastern Snowy Plover (C. a. tenuirostris) These are the only two subspecies of Snowy Plover that occur in Texas. Oberholser describes the Southeastern as, "Similar to C. a. nivosus, but upper parts much lighter." These two will be difficult to separate in the field. The Southeastern Snowy Plover nests in Texas, but the Western does not. Any nest, unusual concentration (10+), or area or regular use is of interest. Piping Plover (Charadrius melodus) This is a common species on UTC tidal flats. Any unusual concentrations (25+) and areas of regular use are of interest. Migrant Loggerhead Shrike (Lanius ludovicianus migrans) Another nearly impossible field identification. Oberholser describes it, "Similar to L. 1. ludovicianus [our common shrike] , but smaller (shorter and slenderer); wing longer; tail shorter and decidedly shorter than wing; upper parts lighter, upper tail-coverts often so." This subspecies apparently does not nest on the UTC, but there are winter records. Any confirmed sighting is of interest. Bachman's Sparrow (Aimophilia aestivalis) This piney woods species prefers open, parklike stands of tall pines. The location of areas with established breeding or wintering populations is of interest. Texas Henslow's Sparrow (Passerherbulus henslowii ssp.) This refers to the population near Hobby Airport. The taxonomic status of this subspecies is uncertain. Any summer records away from Hobby Airport location are of interest. ****** If you have any significant observations of these species, record the time, date, location, number of birds, and activity of the birds and report it to the Clearing House or to: Allan J. Mueller U. S. FISH AND WILDLIFE SERVICE 17629 El Camino Real, Suite 211 Houston, TX 77058 (713) 229-3682 ### -billed Curlew (Numenius americana) This is also a common UTC species. There is one UTC breeding record (Harris County 1910). Any nest, unusual concentration (50+), or area of regular heavy use is of interest.
