FORK-TAILED FLYCATCHER - Stamford, CT



Was very glad to get a wake-up call from Patrick Dugan this morning to inform me that Tina Green had found a FORK-TAILED FLYCATCHER at Cove Island Park in Stamford, CT.

"%$#@! On my way."
[hang up]










Fork-tailed Flycatcher - likely first-year male?

Hopefully some closer, sharper photos will be taken so that we can definitively ID the bird to age/sex, even subspecies if possible in non-adult-males.

  3. Nice pics Nick. I just steal mine from AJ - should have seen the ones I took. At least with this bird no matter how bad they are you can still tell what it is ;)
