Ash-throated Flycatcher

A few days ago I stopped briefly into Sherwood Island State Park (Westport, CT) to see the ASH-THROATED FLYCATCHER that AJ Hand had found a couple days prior. When I arrived the bird was being watched by Tina Green (who had ultimately identified the bird, she knowing that any Myiarchus in November was more likely an ATFL than anything else) and others, making it easy for me! The bird mostly stayed in the canopy but made occasional drops as it actively fed, at one point even visiting the seed feeder.

atop its favorite tree, "the" cork tree

not your typical feeder bird...
