Subject: [Tweeters] Ash-throated Flycatcher Montlake Fill
Hi Tweets,

The Ash-throated Flycatcher found by Connie earlier today was still at the
Fill this afternoon at about 4:30 PM. At first Alex Sowers and I completed
the Loop trail but didn't find anything, and ran into a couple folks who
had been looking with no success. Eventually to our delight it shocked us
by showing up in the west edge of Sidles Swamp. We probably wouldn't have
seen it if it weren't for our interest in the nesting House Wrens that have
taken up nesting in a cavity in a snag. At one point both the wren and
flycatcher were in the same binocular view. Right as we were about to leave
the flycatcher flew over our heads and appeared to land in the trees
bordering Main Pond. If you pursue this bird I would recommend limiting
your time, as WSDOT will be spraying more herbicides over the next couple
of days, and I believe I was affected due to a headache. It was worth it
though! My apologies for the belated report.
