J.D. and I assembled with most of the active Valley birders this morning at The Nature Conservancy's Southmost Preserve in hopes we could see the Fork-tailed Flycatcher found there earlier in the week. Brad McKinney lead the group and the bird appeared right on scehdule. These are not great pics as the bird was rather distant.
Here's a shot through the scope. I forgot my digiscoping camera.
This Black Phoebe chased the Fork-tailed Flycatcher from its favorite pearch. Unknown to me it's been there a couple of years. I would have looked for it sooner as it was a new Cameron County bird for me.
