After a cold front the other morning, a great variety of migrants came through on top of our hill. Birds like Yellow-throated Vireo, Philadelphia Vireo, various warblers and Olive-sided Flycatcher which are rarely seen in this neck of the woods all came through to have their portraits taken. As if seeing an Olive-sided Flycatcher wasn’t enough, the show which took place next was quite exciting. An Eastern Wood-Pewee which may be resident there and defending his territory from the Flycatcher, went on the attack. I’m not sure if he was after the bee that it had caught, or if he was just trying to drive out the bigger bird from his favorite perch. Either way, the next few shots were thrilling!
