A third visit to the vacant lot in Queens with the lingering vagrant Ash-throated Flycatcher was the charm on Sunday. Thanks to Danny and Alan for calling and offering me a ride over and to Daisy for letting me out of the house again (though I was home within an hour). This time it wasn’t even difficult to find the elusive-to-me flycatcher, as the bird was being watched on the side of Cohancy St even as we pulled up in the car. It was a joy to watch and digiscope and reminded me that birds are a bit more enjoyable when one has to work for them.
