Olive-sided Flycatcher

This morning at the Bracebridge Ponds there was an Olive-sided Flycatcher perched atop a dead tree near the west side of cell 4. It sat there preening for a while, showing us the white patches on its lower back. There were also two Alder Flycatchers in the same area. Five Turkey Vultures went streaming by to the north, a Broad-winged Hawk circled overhead, and a single Chimney Swift flew past. Two Black-billed Cuckoos were seen together in the shrubbery by cell 4. The male and female Ruddy Ducks were still in cell 1. A Brown Thrasher was singing in a dead tree and an Eastern Kingbird was using the same tree as a launchpad while hawking insects. With very little wind and finally some sunshine, the black flies were "thick"!
