The (or another) Willow Flycatcher continued at Lighthouse SB in Santa Cruz mid-day today.Â It was flycatching on the north side of the aforementioned eastern willow patch, not far from the northeast corner, around a very tall cedar(?) with a striking silver trunk.Â A Pacific-slope Flycatcher foraging in the same area valiantly tried to distract me from my target, but behavioral differences gave it away - the PSFL tended to stay in the lower 2/3 of the willows, while the WIFL tended to stay near the top - they go low, we go high.

Sharon and Lois's WILLOW FLYCATCHER continues in the Lighthouse SB fields as of this morning approx 10:45a. Â In the northwest quadrant of the fields there are 2 large willow patches and it was flycatching out of the the eastern patch, southeastern corner (the side with more large cypress). Feels like migration is in full swing this week! Â Enjoy!Liam -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "mbbirds" group.
