Up to now (September 1 to be exact) I only saw 2cy, 3cy and 4cy LBBGs at  
Quintana; from mid July.
On September 1 there were about 7 including one adult that just passed  by 
but never landed near me. This was an interesting LBBG - very dark and  in 
relatively very fresh plumage (something I do not see in other adults when  
coming here at this part of the year). I am not going to suggest chance for  
nominate fuscus race as without band nobody would accept that anyway. I am 
not  expecting discussion also as LBBGs are not too popular or their races 
well  known. Nobody seems really to know for sure from where all these LBBGs 
keep  coming to Texas and what race they belong to. But perhaps a few would 
like to  take a look.
