MEGA: White-crested Elaenia in South Texas

A (probable) White-crested Elaenia is being seen in south Texas. Follow the story here. Pictures are here. This will represent a first US record.

Update: Martin Reid has compiled a nice little web site about this bird including audio recording comparisons and more photos.

Boy, someone was really paying attention to catch sight of and ID this one. It certainly pays to pay attention to the little grey jobs.

I'm sure some hardcore NJ chasers I know will be heading down there.
