Not familiar with the area. Briefly observed bird with Small-hooked bill, black and white barred tail and white breast plate. Mostly white body. Appears to be the size of a kite or small hawk. Thought it an immature northern goshawk but see itís not indigenous to the area. Only briefly saw it land on a low limb of a mountain laurel and slowly but gracefully fly away. Non rapid wing flutter. What ya think?

Excited to photograph a "Lifer" this morning near the feeders at "Birdsong" near Wimberley (Skyline Ridge). A Black & White Warbler visited today. I was able to capture three tree photos and one birdbath photo. I read that this is the time for their northward migration. I will be posting photos on Facebook.

I photographed a "Lifer" for myself this morning. We had a small flock of Pine Warblers around the feeder.

Apair of small--about the size of Carolina chickadees, but slender appeared yesterday. They don't stay long enough at our cylinder with sunflower seeds to get a very good look but the male is bright yellow underneath with a black back with a few white feather in this tail. I have not seen his face. The female is also very bright yellow underneath, but brownish back with black and white tail feathers. Not a very good description, but I have never seen them before and can't find a picture in my two books that look like this. Anyone know what they are?
