Welcome to the section where we showcase
some "interesting" Texas birds.
These may be individuals demonstrating a rare or extreme feature, controversial birds whose identity is in question, or strange-looking examples of a common species - birds that could lead an observer to think a rarer species is involved. The purpose is to promote awareness, discussion, learning, - and maybe save a few blushes. If you have a candidate for the gallery contact the webmaster.
Please feel free to discuss any of these birds on appropriate chat groups (ID Frontiers, Texbirds, etc.).
By its very nature this kind of gallery is subjective, so while this feature is endorsed by the TBRC, all choices for material belong to the webmaster, who alone carries the Can for stated identifications and opinions. The initial bias towards photos taken by the webmaster is inevitable - I look forward to showing other birder's "head-scratchers" here.
Except where stated, none of these birds have been processed by the TBRC.
BE AWARE that all images were prepared on a 15-inch monitor - if you are using a larger monitor the colors will look rather washed-out. The only way to resolve this would be to provide duplicate images of everything, and there is not enough web site space to do this.
