Texas, US (Google, OSM)

Description

Please excuse the long-winded comments here, but this was just too special not to share with my iNat friends.

I was on the back deck of my house a while ago, adding sunflower seeds to a feeder that the siskins and goldfinches had about depleted. I saw some movement in one of the live oaks which hangs over my deck and saw that it was a Nashville Warbler. This is a common migrant in central Texas, but I had never gotten any shots of one in my yard. I went back in the house, grabbed a camera with a 100-400 mm lens and came back out on the deck to try to get some identifiable shots of the Nashville. I saw it occasionally popping in and out of view, but it would never give me enough time to get an identifiable shot. So, I'm standing there getting frustrated at the Nashville when suddenly...a Golden-cheeked Warbler started singing about 8 feet from me!

Golden-cheeked Warbler is an endangered species which nests nowhere but Texas. I have heard them from my property two or three times in the past years and seen a male nearby a few years ago, but the habitat in my neighborhood is certainly not prime for the species, but I do know they are around this immediate area in small numbers, but can be very difficult to find. Normally I have to go 30 or so miles from here to see this species, and then it is always iffy whether such a trip is successful. So, now this Golden-cheeked cranks up in song at 4 PM on an overcast and windy day right at my back door...AND I'm holding a camera! Long story short, I took 150+ images from as close as 6 feet as this mature male GCWA foraged in my live oaks! The bird seemed totally unconcerned about me blasting away with the camera and was busy grabbing small worms, etc. It was terrifically exciting. The bird spent at least 10 minutes above my deck, and sang 5 or 6 times, then flew off toward the more wooded property west of me. Golden-cheeks are quick to abandon locations where human habitation is too dense, but hopefully a place like my neighborhood where all the houses are on 2-3 acre sized properties, is more conducive to the bird sticking around. Anyway, first time I have photographed the species in this area or even in Hays County. And I never did get any shots of the Nashville. Somehow that is just O.K. :-)

By the way, the "out of range" designation which usually pops up on the iNat maps of any report of this species near Austin, is incorrect. The area of the Edwards Plateau just west of Austin is, and always has been, part of the normal range of this species.

The Saola was only discovered to science in 1992. There are no Saola in captivity. No Saola have been seen by scientists in the wild. A few records on camera trap exist. In 2004, there were still reports of Saola deep in the Truong Son mountains. This individual was confiscated from hunters in A'Luoi district, in the western reaches of the province. The other pictures are from interviews with Ka Tu ethnic hunters in A'Luoi and A'Vuong districts (Minh Hoang). The last photo is James with rangers from Hue Forest Department examining Saola tracks in A'Luoi - and identifzing schistamoglottis plants, reportedly favoured food for the saola.

In 2013, its status is critical. See what is happening on http://www.savethesaola.org/

Phoenix, AZ

Grey Go-away-bird (Corythaixoides concolor), Gilbert Water Ranch, Maricopa County
The Grey Go-Away Bird (Corythaixoides concolor) is a member of the turaco family. It is found in Southern Africa and is one of the least colorful turaco’s, many of which are as colorful as parrots. The Grey Go-Away is named for its call and it is a very social bird, often living in groups of up to 30 birds. It has a preference for open thornbush country, often near water. It eats fruit, leaves and insects. In captivity, it tends to prefer grains and leaves rather than fruit.

How this bird got to the Gilbert Water Ranch is a complete mystery. It seems in good plumage and health and is not banded. It is illegal to export Grey Go-Aways from Africa and therefore illegal to import them into the United States. They are extremely rare in captivity anywhere in the world and they are not as popular with breeders as the more colorful turacos. This species is often confused with both the White-bellied Go-Away Bird (Corythaixoides leucogaster) and the Western Gray Plantain-eater (Crinifer piscator), both of which are more common in captivity and can be legally imported. A few US zoos have Grey Go-Away Birds, such as the San Diego and Cinncinati Zoo. The local World Wildlife Zoo in Glendale has a small flock in their African Aviary, but according to the director, all are apparently accounted for. Contacts with local, national and international turaco breeders and societies (e.g, the International Turaco Society) have found no known birds in captivity locally. This bird is so rare in captivity that most people contacted insisted that we had misidentified the bird. Fortunately, Brendon Grice’s spectacular photos were all it took to convince people that the bird is indeed a Grey Go-Away.

The Gilbert bird was first discovered by Lyle Hamilton on 13 July 2007. The bird is conspicuous and calls almost constantly, probably trying to locate the rest of its flock. Anyone who might know something about the origin of this bird is encouraged to contact, Michael Moore at Michael.moore AT asu.edu.

In late February 2008, this bird (identified by a broken tail feather) moved 12 miles away to Tempe near the ASU campus.

Seen for more than an hour after dawn, in a small loose group of Eur. Curlews, feeding in a short-grass field on the south side of the main lake. This was "limpy" - the bird that had been shot about 3 weeks earlier, but seemed to make a recovery.

This location is the last known wintering site for this species. The last record from here was in February 1995.

Here is a link to the last video taken at this site, in January 1995:
