I am new to birding but I ran into someone at my local park last week that was very excited to tell me he heard a least flycatcher over in some trees. He had not seen it but was very excited. I realized it was a small gray bird and it was breakfast time so I just went home. A week later I still pondered the significance of this bird so I played its sound in anticipation of finding him. After getting fooled by a few willow flycatchers, I found the least in a small clump of trees. After a few mosquito bites and images, another birder walked up and watched it with me. It seemed a fun experience at an apparently rare bird sighting.

I'm getting more and more into this birding thing. Usually I shot bird images when nothng else was happening and no big mule deer or sheep were around, but I find myself targeting birds on trips. I think I must have 100 or so of the WA birds with many on my website. I'm thinking a good goal would be to shoot every bird within reason in WA. Maybe it would be a fun website idea with a forum for people to follow along. I'll ponder that and keep shooting in the meantime.

Just trying to tell the difference between the Empidonax flycatchers is a treat in itself :) excellent capture and find... I usually see many of the Least Flycatchers in my forest, but this year I have seen only one in May.
