This morning, 2 September, there was a female *Phainopepla* at the FM 54 / FM 596 triangle in Maple. It took me a second to recognize the plaintive whistle. There's a chance it'll stick around for the ripe hackberry fruits in that immediate area.
Remarkably, the only other eBird record of the species in the county was on 3 Sep 1978.
