Upon our arrival this morning at Carbonate Lane, Peter Gent had the best birding line ever.
"Have you seen the bird? Where is the bird?" I asked.
"In the scope," he replied.
And it was.
Good birding (though it doesn't get any easier than that),

Following Michael King's post from yesterday, at 7:40 I parked immediately south of 982 Carbonate Lane, which is a little way northeast of Prince Lake #2. The F-t Flycatcher was in the Russian Olive about 50 yards due west of where I parked, and nicely visible. This seems a good location for the bird in the early morning before there are any insects flying around. It is also well away from any construction going on. Later in the day, the bird may be back just north of the lake where it has been the last two days. Then Thomas Heinrich's suggestion of looking north from the south side of Prince Lake is probably a good idea, if one is stopped from going round the lake into the road construction area.
Cheers, Peter Gent.
