At first glance with naked eye, bird resembled a "TV" due to slight dihedral, overall wing shape and very dark back and upperwings. A large, slender-winged buteo, the bird spent long periods soaring in a circling pattern seldom interrupted with a few soft, deep wing beats. Underwings had very dark, distinctive carpal patches, extremely dark wing tips, and the base of primaries very white creating considerable contrast between these 3 areas. Underwing coverts were heavily streaked and lacked dark patagial marks. Secondaries appeared grayish-white with dark trailing edges. Underparts were dark and streaked with a light-colored band low on the breast. Head, back and upperwings were dark gray-brown. Uppertail was very light at the base turning to light gray and finally dark steel- gray at the tip. Difficult to see, the undertail appeared to have a wide, poorly defined dark sub-terminal band. Upperwings seemed to show a slight trace of white at base of primaries (possible evidence of a sub-adult bird??). Solitary Sandpiper - P. D. Hulce January 3, 1993 Small tringa, grey back with numerous small white spots, white belly. Distinct white eye-ring and lores, legs grey-green, not yellow. A high 2 note call was heard. Yellowlegs seen and heard in same area. Distinctive tail, wide black center crossed by 3 or 4 black bars, dark underwings, no wing stripe. First found by John LaGrove, et. al. on Buffalo Bayou CBC at Longham Creek at Horsepen Creek, north of Clay and west of Addicks-Fairbanks. Buff-bellied Hummingbird - Lynne Aldrich and Peter Gottschling January 9, 1993 Seen at shrimp plants in yard, would not go to a freshly- filled feeder overhead. Hummingbird larger than a selasphorus. Dull green back and head. Dark green chest and chin. Dark chestnut tail. The red in the bill was not in evidence perhaps because it was cloudy. Belly was "tannish." Least Flycatcher - P. D. Hulce January 16, 1993 Small "empid" with large head and small bill. Prominent eye-eye-ring and white wing bars and edging on tertials. Uhitish throat, gray breast, light yellow underparts. Many observers. Second winter at this location in Uest Harris County. Henslow's Sparrow - P. D. Hulce January 1, 1993 Light olive-green head and nape with rusty-brown wings. Back rusty-brown striped with black and white narrow band of fine streaks on buffy breast. Large bill, flat head and irregularly defined ear patch. Located at Grimes and Baller-Hockley Road. Notes were submitted for: House Finch (see Dec. 1992 CH for details). Purple Martin, Pyrrhuloxia and blue-phased Ross' Goose.
