Terry Wahl called and said the empid that showed up a few weeks ago on the
family ranch near Cape Blanco is still around. He took video and said he
thinks it may be a Western but would like some feedback. If he can ever get
it downloaded and sent off I will share.
Last year a Dusky Fly overwintered there but it had a broken upper mandible
and this bird has no apparent damage to either mandible I guess. Weird he
has a late empid at the barn two years straight?!
He said he hasn’t seen the Tropical Kingbirds in a few days biut they could
still be out there somewhere?
The two Coos Tropical Ks are still here today- we’ll see if the cold
weather has an effect on their continued presence. We had our first CBC
kingbird on the CV count last year in January so we shall see?
