Olive-sided Flycatcher - Luke Tiller

Probably the passerine highlight of the fall so far has been a couple of Olive-sided Flycatchers. Today I managed to get a poor record shot in terrible lighting conditions. At least you can tell what it is though.  I have to say that Quaker Ridge and the nearby Fairchild Gardens are about as productive a spot for this species as I have stumbled upon (I think that’s three on the week so far). I rather like this flycatcher – although somewhat drab in appearance they are fairly animated in their behavior. ps Anyone ever notice how badly it’s illustrated in Nat Geo – ouch!
