V O L U M E 6 9 ( 2 0 1 5 ) • N U M B E R 1 175 P I C TO R I A L H I G H L I G H TS 1 & 4 • One of the more striking Eurasian vagrants to North America, this White- winged Tern graced Fatima, Magdalen Islands, Québec 5 August 2014. Apparently the same bird was found there 21 August, when it had completed molt into basic plumage. Photographs by Alain Richard. 2 • Maryland's frst record of Couch's Kingbird was found by Kathy Calvert and Mike Welch in Allegany County 11 November 2014; it remained to be enjoyed by many through 24 November. Photograph by Dave Czaplak. 3 • Part of a widespread dispersal of the species that has reached both British Columbia and Nova Scotia, this Crested Caracara frequented southern Virginia Beach, Virginia near the Chesapeake border 24-25 (here 25) November 2014. Photograph by Rose Chandler. 5 • The identifcation of this tyrannulet has been debated extensively. Perhaps the closest ft is a Yellow-bellied Tyrannulet x Northern Beardless-Tyrannulet hybrid. When this photograph was taken 13 October 2014 near Copán Ruinas in western Honduras, a Yellow-bellied vocalization was recorded and a Northern Beardless- Tyrannulet was also observed. Yellow-bellied Tyrannulet is near the edge of its range in western Honduras and may not be regular at this site, perhaps increasing the likelihood of a stray individual hybridizing with the locally more plentiful Northern Beardless-Tyrannulet. Photograph by Oliver Komar. 6 • This Yellow-nosed Albatross was found 24 kilometers southwest of Clearwater, Florida in the Gulf of Mexico on 9 November 2014 by Captain Todd Legath aboard the fshing vessel Super Queen. First mate Mitch Fox was able to capture a photograph using his iPhone. Photograph by Mitch Fox 7 • This Thick-billed Kingbird, Nevada's second, lingered 7-16 (here 11) November 2014 at Overton Wildlife Management Area, Clark County. Photograph by Rick Fridell. 8 • Only the second ever recorded in Ohio, this juvenile white-morph Reddish Egret (left) in Delaware County was enjoyed by many 3-18 (here 3) September 2014. Photograph by Vic Fazio. 1 4 7 5 3 2 6 8
