In his Check List of Birds of Dallas County, Texas, Stillwell (1939) designated the Wood Thrush, Hylocichla mustelina (Gmelin), a rare transient. He states: "We rarely see, never hear, the Wood Thrush in Dallas ... ", and gives May 25 as the latest record of its occurrence in the County. Local bird enthusiasts, however, tell me that although the Wood Thrush is not a common spring migrant here, it is certainly not rare.
