The bird was present when I arrived this afternoon at 3:00 (nobody present when I arrived) and was still being very patient for everyone (probably over a dozen people still there when I left) at 5:30 pm. The bird allowed close looks and many photos by all. The bird from 3:00-4:00 seemed to prefer the bare branched tree near the campground area and perched out in the open. From 4:00-5:15 the bird moved over to Russian Olives and Ash Trees on the south side of the lawn still allowing close looks. I was even able to set up for digiscope photos easily. About 5:15 the bird moved back to the bare tree and was still present when I left. The bird never called while I was there, but caught quite a few insects and was actively feeding.

Great find to Mike and MerryLynn!
