Three Life Birds

A great week of birding continues with three lifers this week. All great birds with the winner being a Bicknell's Thrush. To be perfectly honest I would have missed this bird(and probably did) but thanks to Jeremiah, Ryan, Jeff, and Bob who spent the time to photograph the bird, record its song and positively ID it as the Bicknell's. That said, the Fork-tailed Flycatcher was is MEGA Rarity but the bird looked like it had been through hell(undoubtably fighting strong winds) and had lost its beautiful signature tail feathers. Regardless, a great bird and a great find in Watertown(Mt. Auburn).
The excitement continues!
