David Wolf, "COUCH'S KINGBIRD: Nov 2-Dec 21, 2002 is full span of dates for this great rarity (first confirmed record for the entire Pineywoods region). First found by Jesse Fagan on Nov 2; it was tape-recorded by Mimi Hoppe Wolf later that day to confirm the id. The bird was seen sporadically through Dec 21, when Rick Schaefer found it for our Nacogdoches CBC, but it was not seen again after that. I saw and heard it several times during this period."
