Transcript FIELD NOTES, September, 1983 Parasitic Jaegeri BUI. dark gray, slender, hooked. Eye black. Tarsi chalky white, several brown dots. Feet slaty. Head white, frosted gray. Back of neck in moult, scruffy looking. Head appeared small for jody^ Chest white. Belly white. Lower flanks and undertail-eoverts barred with black or very dark brown. Upper tail-coverts barred white and black or dark brown. Outer tail feathers white, very worn. Inner tail feathers dark brown, tips very worn. tflngs and mantle dark brown. Outer * or 5 quills of primaries white. Hindneck barred on lower portion. General impression - looked like an oiled ring-billed gull, size slightly larger than laughing gull. Bird was approached to within 15 feet and photographed. Bird flushed 3 times. It flew low, once pursuing several laughing gulls, once being pursued by them. Flight light. Seen by about 20 observers. Familiarity with species - I've handled skins of all three jaegers, and seen all three in life, mostly parasitlcs and pomarines, and saw parasitlcs on a daily basis for two summers in Alaska. - - - Bob Behrstock. ?ranklln's g»H* 1 flying, not as dark gray as Laughing gull, with white feathers 1" - 2" in from the wing tips, between black & gray winter plumage. Eye ring. Two others sitting with Laughing gull. One stretched his wings to show same as above, seemed a tad smaller than Laughing. Scope & binocs - good light - 10 min. Don & Ruthie Melton tflED'S CRESTED FLYCATCHER! The best way to describe the bird observed is that it had the general appearance, form, and size of a Great Crested Flycatcher, and the color scheme of an Ash-throated Flycatcher. It had an ashy-white throat and very pale yellow underparts which were almost a cream-color. The bill was completely dark colored, and proportionally seemed a bit larger than that of a Great Crested Flycatcher. The bird did not call. It was similar to others of this species which I have observed in South Texas and Mexico, except perhaps it was slightly more "washed out" in its coloration than some individuals. Beverly and I watched the bird for about 3 minutes from about 75 feet away as it engaged in flycatching activities from a tree bordering the clearing which contains the old house and trailer at Smith Woods, High Island. - - - - - - Steve ifrlliams Veeryi Rufous-tawny above, palish gray to white below, very faint, almost non-existent spotting on upper breast. Obvious thrush size and shape. Seen for 1-2 minutes by both observers who are very familiar with this species and all other UTC thrushes. Jim Morgan. Bay-breasted Warbleri Large, relatively slow-moving warbler with dingy brown and streaked upper parts, buffy underparts, dark legs, wing bars and very distinct bay wash on flanks. Bay on sides as well and more noticeable in second individual. The bird on 18 September should be checked for fall early arrival record. Seen well by both observers for 20-40 seconds in very good light with binocs. Both observers familiar with fall plumages of this species as well as Pine and Blackpoll Warblers. - - - Jim Morgan. CLEARING HOUSE - October, 1983 The Clearing House is a monthly record of bird sightings made on the Upper Texas Coast. How to read the CHi Speciest Location—(how manyjdate, observers. Those common species which can be easily identified and are widely distributed in the UTC will also be listed, followed by the number of reports, with the lowest and highest number of Individuals seen in parenthesis, i.e. (l-4Q). Noteworthy sightings will be underlined, capitalized, or both, according to their status. All observations reported below must be accepted by the Checklist Committee (Ben Feltner, Jim Morgan and Noel Pettingell) before they are considered valid and included in the next checklist. Sightings lacking details, when required, will not be included in the Clearing House. Submitters who forget details should send their notes to a member of the Checklist Committee.
