CWS field journal vol. 4:140. Birding with Greg Lasley and Bret Whitney. We drove the beach and (old) TX 87 from Sea Rim SP to TX 124, stopping frequently to search clumps of salt cedar along the beach and highway. Because of the focus on salt cedars, I made virtually no notes on beach birds (shorebirds, larids, etc.). My field notes contain separate short lists for each salt cedar clump visited (about 20); those lists are combined here.

    Comments: From CWS field journal vol. 4:145. Seen 4.3 mi E of TX 124 on TX 87. Flushed from salt cedar and watched in flight for 15 sec from 30-70 ft. Seen perched ~70 ft away for abt 30 seconds. Long-tailed bird with vivid dark streaking below, dark robin-like bill, long, dark gray tail with light tips to tail feathers. Two wingbars. Eye dark (i.e. immature bird). When the bird initially flushed and flew to another salt cedar clump, it never flew above 3 ft high. Observed also by Greg Lasley. See American Birds 34(2):180.
