Essentials:

The Willow Flycatcher

I woke up this morning to a completly new species of bird on the feeder. I have not seen this bird yet since we’ve lived here. I tracked it down using Whatbird.com and it seems most like the Willow Flycatcher. The coloring on the species page isn’t a perfect match but it’s the best one of the bunch.

I’m always surprised how a ‘flock’ of a certain species takes over the roost for a few days at a time. Last week we had an infestation of house finches. Maybe we’ll see some more exotic species as the season progresses.
