Olive-sided Flycatcher

Drew WeberBird Sightings, eBird, MigrationLeave a Comment

The highlight of a mornings walk around Lancaster County Central Park was the Olive-sided Flycatcher I found perched at the tippy top of a tree. I did not have my camera along so I took some shots with my phone, through by binoculars- phonescoping! They didn’t turn out amazing but you can see the vest like coloring of the chest. It was a nice bird and I was surprised to get both my first Olive-sided Flycatcher and Eastern Wood-Pewee on the same date. The unknown of what might be around during migration is really what keeps me going outside. My full list from the day is below.
