big flycatcher on top of a tall bare branch, that's our bird!
And yesterday, a nice young man named Adrian Burke pointed me at an Olive-sided Flycatcher! It was on the tall snag at the southeast corner of Azalea Pond, where Olive-sideds like to perch when they come through, and it's the earliest Fall record in eBird for the species in Manhattan that I can see.
not a great shot, but tufts of white feathers on the back is a good mark for Olive-sided
Keep watching the skies. And the trees. And the shoreline.
