New Gray Flycatcher at Kit Carson Park on Thursday 18 Feb


Susan Smith
 

A cooperative Gray Flycatcher (I think this is a new one, at least for this winter) was on the southeast side of Tree Lake pond and picnic/play area (compilation spot for Esc. CBC), along the concrete E-W path lined with pepper trees and adjacent to a grassy  athletic field. This is the southern end of Kit Carson pond, adjacent to the Westfield Shopping Center.  The bird was spending time between the mid-row pepper trees and perched on the athletic field chain link fence. A Black Phoebe is also in this area. Listen for the soft  bip or whit vocalization, or look for it tail-dipping either in the pepper trees or athletic field fence. location: http://maps.google.com/maps?q=33.07227615,-117.06256478.
