It was observed perching and during short flights to s different perch during the course of the morning. The bird was obviously cuckoo by its general shape, the brown upperparts, the white underparts and the long tail. The bill was all black and the wings and tail did not show any rufous in flight. Multiple observers. Black-chinned Hummingbird - Steve Williams September 14, 1991 A subadult male with an incomplete purple gorget with tiny spots of the same color also growing in near the largest area of color on the throat was observed at 3:45 PM in the High Island Smith woods sanctuary on a sunny afternoon. It was feeding on lantana and wild Morning Glory flowers growing in the clearing beside the parking area with an unusually large number of Archilochus hummingbirds. The purple in the gorget was well-noted from several angles and distinguished from the red which sub-adult male Ruby-throated Hummingbirds possess at a similar stage of development. Two subadult male Ruby-throated Hummingbirds were also noted within the seme hour. These birds had similar throat plumage, but showed red instead of purple. I have seen many similar plumaged hummingbirds in late summer in west Texas and Hew Mexico. Eastern Phoebe - Mike Austin September 28, 1991 Medium-sized flycatcher with short primary extension. The bird had a short dark tail which it wagged. It had a white throat, olive "vest", pale yellow lower belly and vent. No wingbars nor eyering. Short bill with dark brown lower mandible. Perched for 20 seconds on a dead snag at Purkey's Pond in Boy Scout woods at High Island. Observed from 15 feet with 10X50 binoculars. Swainson's Warbler - Derek Muschalek September 23, 1991 Observed feeding in the leaf litter at Smith Oaks sanctuary in High Island. Field marks: Brownish upperparts with reddish brown crown, pale white eyebrow, creamy white underparts, very long pointed bill. Watched for 15 minutes. This bird flipped leaves as it searched for food. Scarlet Tanager - Mike Austin September 28, 1991 Dorsal views of medium sized, lime green bird. Underparts uniformly pale yellowish green. Crown and back unstreaked olive. Bill was thin for a tanager. Paler faced, plainer faced with fewer orangish, yellowish tones than Summer Tanager female. It perched for a minute on dead horizontal limb above Purkey's Pond in Boy Scout Woods at High Island. It was unmercifully pounding a large, winged insect it had caught against tN branch. Observed through foliage from 20 feet with 10X40 binoculars. Very familiar with this plumage from Point Petee, Ontario. chipping Sparrow - Derek Muschalek September 23, 1991 Two juvenile birds with streaked underparts were feeding at Smith Oaks sanctuary in open outside area. Field marks: Long notched tail, black eyeline, streaked upperparts and underparts, trace of chestnut on crown, typical slim Spizella profile. Observer familiar with species. REPORT FROM AUGUST CH Glossy Ibis - David Wolf August 23, 1991 Seen in marshy pond near High Island with 10X40 binoculars and Kowa TSH-2 spotting scope 20X eyepiece. This bird was with s small flock of 11 dark Plegadis, readily recognized as such by their size, long legs, long thin necks, long decurved beaks and all dark plumage. All field marks discussed were noted in direct comparleon with the White-faced Ibis. The Glossy Ibis was distinguished by dark facial skin, a thin line of powdery bluish-white bordering the facial skin from the top of the beak to the eye, dark brown iris, evenly brownish olive beak, and dark grayish legs with the knees a dull dark red. In direct comparison the two close White-faced Ibis had obvious bare red facial skin, a complete and broader border of white that completely encircled the facial skin (no longer bright white but complete), obvious ruby-red irises, distinct reddish tinge to all or most of beak becoming brighter toward the base, and legs completely reddish. All three birds were determined to be adults because if the highly iridescent wing coverts and the rich cheatnut brown color of the back and underparts. They were going into non-breeding plumage and the heads and necks were becoming streaked and the facial patterns were becoming drabber.
