|Great Crested Flycatcher|
A few days ago we were up in MN and we decided to stopp at a few rest areas to bird but the first two we came up empty handed, until the last rest area. We walked all the way around not seeing anything new for us and walked by the fenced in Indian Mounds and through the chain linked fence caught sight of a Great Crested Flycatcher! #283 Wow i really like the way our number is climbing!
The last bird we got at a rest area in IA as we stopped at a rest area so Simon could smoke a cigarette; and we 'power bird' together. Power birding is just what you might think; kind of like power walking only with a camera and birds. We spotted this Philadelphia Vireo up in a tree singing away! So that vireo took up all our time but was worth it since it was another lifer! #286.
