With how much the Fork-tailed Flycatched moved around (n. Larimer County to Casper, Casper to Boulder County), I'm keeping my eyes open. The bird must have flown very fast. The spot in Casper he was seen is about 200 miles from Lafeyette, and it traveled there in three weeks. Therefore, I say he (or she) could be anywhere in a 200 mile (or more) radius of Lafayette. This is most of Colorado. Suffice to say, I'm keeping my eyes open. Apparently we have a Thick-billed Kingbird record from 1992. North Dakota just got their first a couple weeks ago, maybe we're do for another one. Also, Gray Kingbirds have been seen as far inland as Michigan, Illinois, Missouri, and Arkansas. It may be stretching it, but maybe we'll get it in Colorado sometime.
