Flycatchers Returning

Saturday morning I was treated to the song of a Least flycatcher at a wildlife preserve in Frederick County, MD. This little guy was singing his heart out while looking for food. He was certainly a migrant no doubt headed for upstate NY. Least flycatchers are perhaps the easiest of the flycatchers to hear during migration as they sing constantly and the harsh “Che’bek!” is easily learned.

Also present was a male Wilson’s warbler. This species is very elusive in central MD and it was great to hear him singing from the brushy pond edge.
