Super shot! Nice, low angle on the bird. Were you lying down?

Picture editing is OK. CC always welcome.

There has been a huge decline of the Spotted Flycatcher over the last 10 years (60% down in numbers). I'm pleased to say that on my patch this time of the year I have seen 3. The same number for the past 5 years I know of.

Thank you Mike.
It's getting harder to find rugged natural settings that aren't perfectly manicured.
Happy trails.

Thank you very much, Mike! The BE nest is right at an elementary school, so new fledglings often fly to the roof top nearby.

Nice one, Shalu. That's quite a mouthful of nesting material.

Marvelous shot, Shalu. It looks like he's trying to fly off with the building.

Beautiful image.
Looks like its on a round bale so expect the mice and your other inhabitants are active.
A lovely site indeed.

Love the light in this. Really illuminates that magnificent bird.
They are truly a bird of note.
