Rick's Place Acadians

Charles Tang took a great photo  of a perched Acadian Flycatcher at Rick's Place.

It's long been suspected that a nest is present. Later Ryan M reported two Acadians and a silent empid possibly a fledgling.

Rick's Place is the section adjoining the Boulder bridge and west North Midwood in Prospect.

- Comments: "Continuing, just south of Rick's Place. Heard full pizza song a few times, at one point twice in fairly quick succession from different sides of the path. We weren't on the bird so we can't swear it didn't fly, but it could have been two birds. Voice recording."
