Hi Tweets,

Sorry for the delayed post. Out for a walk with a friend around 9 am on 7/30/11 and heard an OLIVE-SIDED FLYCATCHER singing close by. We were walking north on 76th Ave NE (which soon becomes Evergreen Pt Road) and heard it at the intersection of NE 14th St. At NE 23rd St, heard the "pit-pit-pit" call. Could thus flycatcher be nesting in Medina? Recently got an email from a birder who lives just south of this neighborhood who reports hearing an Olive-sided Flycatcher since it migeated in and currently has seen it perched as well as flying into and out of the upper canopy of a large conifer. Nesting? Your thoughts?
