Great Crested Flycatcher




With its raspy call that carries far, the new bird in the trees today stirred up all the other birds.  A pair have been coming and calling the woods beside the house home for the last couple of years.  I heard that very distinctive call two days ago but could never spot it.  Today I answered back each time it called.  Before long, it came.  These birds seem very receptive to answering back and coming to investigate.
