Well, earlier this month, I was watching a number of birds hop around the elm and pine trees next door. Grabbing my camera, I began shooting.
Most of the birds in the trees were common birds often seen in my area. Those birds include Western Tanagers, Orange-crowned Warblers (I have never seen the crown), White-crowned Sparrows and a number of other species.
After taking more than 200 photos of the birds, I began looking at the variety. One bird in particular confused me. I knew it was in the flycatcher family, but just couldn’t nail down an identification.
So I sent it to an area expert and got back a identification.
