FOS Ash-throated Flycatcher


I drove out to Middle Concho Park yesterday afternoon.  Earlier in the day, I had been to my doctor to have a biopsey taken from a little thingee on my neck.  I don’t recall what it was called, something that ends in ‘noma’.  Anyway, it is minor, but afterward I got restless.  A beautiful day, and I had to get outside.  However, for some reason or other, the birds must have been taking a siesta elsewhere, as there wasn’t much activity, except for a bunch of woodpeckers.

But one bright light was that we spotted a pair of Ash-throated Flycatchers (Myiarchud cinerascens).  The first ones that we have spotted this season.  So maybe this is a sign of things to come.  I am anxious to get back out and see what else will be arriving.  Click on either picture to see an enlargement.
