Transcript Sooty Tern - December 21, 1991 A dark medium large tern. Bill was black and pointed; the upper and lower mandibles were both dark. Eye was black. The head was dark including the nape. The chin, throat and upper breast were blackish-brown. The back and wings were generally dark. The secondaries and the primaries were a dull black shade. The greater coverts were more a dark brown to brown-black. The median coverst were dull black and the lesser coverts were mixed dull black and brown feathers. The marginal coverts were white. The under wing coverts were white. The secondaries and primaries underwings were a brown gray. The legs and feet were black. The upper tail was a dull black brown. Outer retrices were broken. Tail would be forked if retrices were whole. Buff-bellied Huimingbird - Margaret Anderson December 15, 1991 A noisy, large huimingbird seen feeding at shrimp plant. Red bill, tipped with black. Rufous tail, green throat, rufous belly. Ruby-throated Huimingbird - Margaret Anderson December 15, 1991 Gorget 30 percent developed and flashed mercurochrome red. Back green. Uhite belly. Uhite tips on tail, small hummingbird with black bill. Anna's Hummingbird - Margaret Anderson December 15, 1991 Large hummer. Very green back. Rosy gorget and top of head showing some color. Gorget 30 percent developed. Dark gray belly. Saw numerous times at feeder, shrimp plant and perched in tree. Calliope Huimingbird - Margaret Anderson December 15, 1991 A very small hummer. Green back, green head, green tail. Small amount of cinnamon on flanks. Belly off-white, slightly buffy. Gorget 30 percent developed. Lines of dots radiating to outside of throat from the center of the throat. Center area flashed "pinky red". Tail very short. At rest wings extend as much as 1/4 inch beyond tail. Bill very fine, black and needle-like. A fat body, not elongated like Rufous Hummingbird. No rufous on tail. Much smaller than Rufous Huimingbird. Broad-tailed Hummingbird - Margaret Anderson December 15, 1991 Larger hummer. Gorget 30 percent developed and flashed rosy red. Rufous on flanks. Small amount of rufous on outside feathers near base of tail. Bronzy green head. Uhite tips on tail. Least Flycatcher - Jim Morgan December 15, 1991 Small flycatcher, approximately 5 inches overall. Flycatching in a very large stand of salt cedars. "Uhit" note heard. Small empidomax with proportionately large looking rounded head; prominent almond-shaped white evering; very tiny bill; very dark primaries and two bold white wing bars; very short primary extension; short tail; green back, nape and crown; yellowish underparts, brighter on belly. Combination of "whit" note, tiny bill, very short primary extension, short tail and prominent almond-shaped ere-ring eliminates all other empidomax flycatchers. Ash-throated Flycatcher - Austin et al December 15, 1991 Observed in excellent light conditions. Heard a soft whit note. Observed flycatching 3 to 20 feet off the ground. Small Myiarchus flycatcher. Rufous on folded primaries. Underside of tail bright rufous. Small head with bush brown crest. Pale gray face with prominent eye. Small, all dark bill. Back unstreaked brownish olive. Uings brown with two white wingbars. Pale white edging to secondaries and tertials. Brown retrices - uneven, partially molted. Narrow pale tip to tail. Underparts, throat and breast pale whitish gray. Belly and vent pale yellow. Ash-throated Flycatcher - L. Chamness December 15, 1991 Description similar to above. Brown-crested Flycatcher - J. Morgan December 15, 1991 Observed for 20 minutes in fair light conditions. Voice: A distinct, bold "whit" or "whirt" call note with no inflection or change in pitch. Description: Immediate impression was of a large Myiarchus with a large heavy bill and a light gray head and yellow belly. Because of size, hood and fairly yellow belly immediate call by Morgan was of Great-crested or Brown-crested and not Ash-throated. Also, the bird was in habitat and higher up in elevation than what would be expected for Ash-throated. Head was light gray with a brown, bushy crest on crown, noticeably prominent when excited; bill was very large and all black, but Behrstock believed there was a very tiny area at base of lower mandible which was slightly paler than the rest of bill; olive brown back; light grayish breast which gave a hooded effect; belly appeared quite yellow when bird was under the canopy, but noticeably lighter out in the open; noticeable rufous in wings, particularly on bottom of folded wing; tail showed completely dark outer webs of retrices and dark edging to shaft side of inner webs, but remainder of inner webs rufous including tips. Care was taken to notice that dark outer web color did not wrap across tips of inner webs as in Ash-throated. Overall effect of tail coloring was of "much rufous" in tail, particularly when flying and flycatching. Call and tail pattern are diagnostic. Photo taken. Western Kingbird - Emmanual, Collins, Collins December 15, 1991 Larger than nearby Eastern Phoebe. Bright yellow belly, gray breast, black tail with white outer tail feathers, gray head, slightly greenish back. Large flycatcher. Photo taken. Black-throated Green Warbler -Peake. et al December 15, 1991 Call note - distinct "chipp". Size was similar to Yellow-rumped Warbler. Bird was observed rapidly moving with mixed warbler flock. Bill dark, lore dull brownish yellow, cheeks bright yellow, crown and nape yellow green. Lower throat and upper breast black with some whitish; sides of breast were black and black streaking of upper flanks. Remainder of underparts including undertail coverts were white. Back was yellow green (not streaked). Wings were black with 2 white wingbars. Tail black with white tail spots. Prairie Warbler - Chuck Sexton December 15, 1991 A bright warbler, olive green above, bright yellow on most of underparts. undertail coverts white (less extensive white than on belly of Pine Warbler). Yellow face with suggestion of male Prairie Warbler face pattern. Dull dusky line through eye and curved line below the eye. Dark streaking along flanks. Chestnut streaks on olive green back. Large white tail spots. Tail bobbing. Seen foraging in canopy of live oaks in mixed flock of titmice, kinglets, yellow-rumped warblers, etc. Viewed by at least six observers. American Redstart - Austin, et al December 15, 1991 Slightly larger than kinglets and of similar size to Yellow-rumped Warblers with which it was associated. Body frequently held parallel to limb or with head lower than tail. Flicked tail from side to side occasionally fanning it as it actively foraged. Relatively long-tailed warbler. Tail showing inverted black "T" pattern with central tail feathers dark/black and terminal black band leaving very pale yellow rectangular patches either side of base of tail. Underparts clear soft white. Upperparts medium gray with yellowish patches on either side of breast forward of bend in wing.
