Abstract:New, or verification of old, records for seventeen species of birds occurring in the southern Guadalupe Mountains, Culberson Co., Texas, are reported. Specimens of Caprimulgus vociferus, Eugenes fulgens, Sayornis nigricans, Nucifraga columbiana, Catharus ustulatus, Vireo olivaceus, Dendroica pensylvanica, and Icterus cucullatus, were collected and represent the first specimen records of these species for the Guadalupe Mountain region of Culberson Co. Sightings and specimen records indicate that Buteo albonotatus, Falco peregrinus, Actitis macularia, Eugenes fulgens, Sphyrapicus varius, Empidonax oberholseri, Vermivora virginiae, Icterus cucullatus, and Loxia curvirostra breed, or are potential breeders, in the area under consideration.
