Redbuds have broken out blooming the past week despite colder than normal temps. Most likely the Texas subspecies (Cercis canadensis texensis) called Texas Redbud but difficult to know for sure.

Description

Greg Lasley found a Ruff (Reeve) at the Williamson Creek WWTP and called me. I was able to get out there in late afternoon; I made this field sketch of the bird. The record was later accepted as the 6th Texas record of the species (TBRC 1988-6; Amer. Birds 37:200). The WWTP was later abandoned and converted into part of the Roy Kizer Golf Course. An eBird checklist for this day is available at:

I'm uploading my original sketch of a small Picoides woodpecker which I studied at length and decided was a probable hybrid between Ladder-backed and Downy Woodpeckers. The sketch and full details were published in the Bull. of the Texas Ornithological Society, Vol. 19(1&2):2-5, 1986.
