Fork-tailed Flycatcher

A WOW bird

Viewed 43 Times

Like Bonnie, I went the day after this bird was reported. A rare lifer of this status does not appear very often, I went in the late afternoon when there was a breeze and watching this bird fly from perch to perch looked like I was watching a kite in the sky. Absolutely amazing and somewhat breathtaking to say the least. I hope many other GreatBirdPics members in the Iliinois/Indiana area had a chance to see the bird. It was around for three days and seems to have departed as of yesterday.
