Great Crested Flycatcher

There have been a few Great Crested Flycatchers hanging out right here in the yard for a couple days so I was able to get an opportunity to get a couple shots off for you. This is the answer to the Bird Quiz posted a few days ago.I can't believe I was able to catch this individual as it took off from the perch above.
I'm really enjoying hearing them chat to each other right here in the yard.

Hey babe. I had a pair nest above us at the lake a few years ago. Their cinnamon and yellow coloring is so pretty! Love this!

Love the flying shot! What a lovely yellow belly it has.

They are very vocal birds, but to find them is another story! Well done! And a flight shot! Cherry on top!

Nice catch on the bird in flight. I don't have one photo that isn't just a blur, if there's anything in the frame at all! The little guy makes a nice banner Too! :)

Great shot of the bird in flight! I had one of these birds build a nest in a martin house once. They are neat birds.
