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.
Thank you for sharing your photos, which I love, and your knowledge. I for one am learning a lot from you and am having fun doing it. I live very near Lake Apopka and the variety of birds is absolutely breathtaking. --- DianaReplyDelete
Thanks so much! As one who's also learning it's humbling to know I'm also helping others. I'm always amazed by what is at Lake Apopka, and sometimes it seems like anything could be there.Delete
