Presqu'ile Provincial Park - What a treat to see this bird. I had the one In Montreal last fall but the setting was nowhere near as good as this. I could always orient myself for the right light unlike with the other bird. The flycatcher was likely blown up by warm stormy weather that originated on the Texas coast a few days ago.

It was very cold first thing in the morning and windy after that, keeping insects low or on the ground. It always fed on the ground and seldom went to a perch so most of my shots were of it on the ground.

  1. I selected a nice perched shot to show the bird rather than a lawn shot. I got plenty of those. This bird was fabulous and had us enjoying the show for almost four hours before it took a long break for the afternoon.

  2. Unfortunately for birders it looks like the flycatcher did what I told people that day when some thought it might remain for a long time. It was not seen Saturday and likely rode the continuing strong northwest winds south. It was inevitable but we certainly enjoyed our time with it.
