Acknowledgements The late Dr. Wesley Lanyon assisted with early attempts to analyze this problem by supplying comments on some of the first recordings, providing discussion of the re- sults, and producing our initial sonograms. David Hedges and David Poteet assisted with efforts to capture selected individuals for in- hand examination. We are thankful to and acknowledge the Nature Conservancy of Texas for allowing these important surveys to be conducted in the early years of the Da- vis Mountains Preserve. In particular, John Karges deserves special credit for implemen- tation and organization of that effort, begin- ning in the late 1990s. All song recordings have been deposited at the Macaulay Library, Cornell University, Ithaca, New York. All original recordings were made with a Sony CM-5000V cassette recorder using a Sennheiser shotgun mi- crophone. Birds were captured and banded under valid permits issued by Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, Austin, Texas, and the USGS Bird Banding Laboratory, Laurel, Maryland. We thank Steven W. Cardiff and Donna L. Dittmann for their critical review of this manuscript and suggestions for its improve- ment. BIBLIOGRAPHY American Ornithologists' Union. 1998.
