Almost as if on cue, I got my Scissor-tailed Flycatcher! I'm pretty sure Brandon predicted this one...

I'm going to make this post short since I'm working on 3 hours of sleep. I didn't get to bed til about 2:30 last night (hosting a party) and up at 5:30 this morning...full report from today coming tomorrow!

In short, Brett and I chased a Scissor-tailed Flycatcher in Prince Edward County this morning and were succesful after about 15 minutes of searching. We managed to get a ton of killer is an early edit.

I added 6 more year birds today - the flycatcher, as well as Brown Thrasher, Pine Warbler, Blue-gray Gnatcatcher, House Wren, and Lesser Yellowlegs. It was a great day in the field, and I'm now up to 181 for the year!


  1. What's up with this partying .... I thought you had all these major exams all week and couldn't go birding?

  2. Spectacular! Congrats. We'll see if we can't turn up a Say's Phoebe for you up here.

  3. What a gorgeous bird Josh. Congrats... and you captured it wonderfully! Thanks for the scope advice! Good luck with the exams!
