Subject: [texbirds] Phainopepla in Maple (Bailey Co.)

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.

Good birding,
