Subject: Scissor-tailed Flycatcher, late Great Crested Flycatcher at Fort Fisher Museum this p.m.

Went to southern New Hanover County, NC this p.m. to look for the Scissor-tailed reported earlier by Mark Jones. Found the bird at 1:30 p.m. where it was reported earlier.

Hiked around the museum grounds looking for anything unusual that might be around, thinking a Western Kingbird would be a nice find but no luck. But I did stumble on what I first thought might be an Ash-throated Flycatcher...After getting home and looking at my pics, I've decided it is a Great Crested Flycatcher. Still an unusual find for this time of year.
