Brown-crested Flycatcher at Lake Apopka, 1/26/2013
This morning I went out to Lake Apopka. A friend of my told me that he'd found several interesting flycatchers there: Brown-crested, Ash-throated and Least Flycatcher. I had to borrow my daughter's bike to get out there in time to see the birds and get back in time. I must have looked pretty funny riding my daughter's pastel blue bike with a basket on the front, but you gotta do what you gotta do. Anyway, it took me some time to find them. I made it to the spot, didn't find them, rode to the end of the trail and came back, then looked for another 45 minutes. Finally I saw and heard the Brown-crested Flycatcher, followed shortly by the Ash-throated and Least Flycatchers. I only got presentable photos of the Brown-crested, but I'm not complaining.
