A special "Thank You" to Frank Ferrell for discovering this bird and noticing that "something wasn't quite right". Frank was diligent in documenting what he saw and Michael Lester came to the conclusion first that this might be a Tropical Kingbird. BINGO!
Thanks to these two, MANY people were able to see, hear, photograph and record this wonderful bird. This is only third Colorado record for the species.
Thank you Michael and Frank!
