Possible Great Crested Flycatcher at Mountour WMA


Carl Lundblad
 

Elizabeth Medes photographed a Myiarchus that appears to be a good candidate for a Great Crested Flycatcher, at Montour WMA (Gem Co.) this morning.  It was not relocated this evening, but overall bird activity was reported to be light.  It would be well worth searching for tomorrow.  Additional photos and recordings of any vocalizations would be helpful.  A few photos are available in eBird:https://ebird.org/checklist/S94336852.   Montour WMA is on the south side of the Payette River west of Horseshoe Bend, and directions can also be derived from the eBird checklist.  Hunting season is underway, and Liz notes that birders should wear hunter orange if birding there.

Good Birding,
