The Tumalo Res. Least Flycatcher is very vocal this morning. As I drove over the one lane bridge I heard the bird's loud "che-bek, che-bek call coming from the area on the south side of the creek. Over the next 45 minutes it was almost constantly calling as it flew from juniper to juniper and then up to a dead branch in a tall cottonwood. It was one of the easiest county rarities I have encountered in a while. Shy it isn't.
Also in the area (down in the willows below) were a Spotted Sandpiper, Yellow Warbler and Willow Flycatcher.
