Bashakill – OLIVE-SIDED FLYCATCHER

Olive-sided Flycatcher on the Stop Sign Trail at the Bashakill.


This morning I received a call from Scott Baldinger. He was on the Mearn’s Bird Club Field Trip to the Bashakill. They had just found an Olive-sided Flycatcher in the Deli Fields at the Bashakill. I zoomed right down, but the bird had moved and though I spent some time, I could not relocate it. I went on to bird a couple of other locations and soon received a second call from Scott. They had found another Olive-sided Flycatcher on the Stop Sign Trail off Haven Road. I went right over and had great looks at the bird. I called Arlene Borko who came over to see it as well. It still remained when we left nearly an hour later, still catching insects in the air. The bird was located in the usual location, the large dead tree on the right shortly before the trail enters the woods again. Thanks again Scott for the heads up on this bird!
