On Saturday, July 22, I saw a Great Crested Flycatcher, a bird we have never seen before. The sighting was brief, with no time for a photo, but the tricoloured front view of light grey, soft lemon yellow and orange was unmistakable.
Another first this year is a family of Rose-Breasted Grosbeaks. The female has been feeding her two young at the sunflower feeder. There are also at least three males coming to the feeder. In previous years, these birds have just stayed around for a few days.
