A first-of-season male came into my yard at 11:15 am, providing nearby views for about 5 minutes. On incoming it briefly landed on my brush pile and flew to the box elder tree for the rest of the time before flying off. It was a real treat to watch and to be able to film this stunning songbird. I have observed this species twice during past migrations, but this is the first time I have ever seen one in my yard.
