May 19 - Alder Flycatcher - new species for my apartment list
A gray, rainy, foggy, misty day, but it produced the first new bird for my apartment bird list in 3.5 years - an Alder Flycatcher. The bird was down in the low vegetation in Muscota Marsh and I first saw and heard it from the deck overlooking the marsh. Since it was actively flying around the marsh I quickly went up to the apartment to see if I could get it from the apartment window. I did not hear it calling from upstairs, but Ann and I watched it flying around the low vegetation. It is species number 115 from the apartment.
