It's one of the last migrants to arrive to these shores, and maybe that adds a little something to it for me, as I cannot settle until I've tracked down a Spotted Flycatcher. They arrived towards the end of May and once again, I'm so lucky to know of several places that they return to each year. Just half an hour from home, and I'm able to spend a good amount of time viewing them. I love watching their flycatching escapades as they leap, catch, and return to the branch from which they took off from. Such agile birds, but very quiet. Very little song or calls, so you really are relying on your eyesight and peripheral vision to spot them. Cracking little birds.
Yeah, typical flycatcher behavior. Fantastic shots!ReplyDelete
Great series on the Spotted Flycatcher. It is a cute little bird. Thank you for sharing your post. Take care, enjoy your weekend.
They are so pretty and have a musical song too. The flycatchers here are usually heard before they are spotted!ReplyDelete
