Scissor-tailed Flycatcher

This Scissor-tailed Flycatcher, a rare visitor from the west, was in Northampton County, on the Eastern Shore today, with more than 30 Eastern Kingbirds on wires over a big field.

Swallow-tailed Kite at College Creek Hawkwatch

This rare Swallow-tailed Kite, seen today by Bill Williams and me, was the first for the 21 years of the College Creek Hawkwatch, on the James River, near Williamsburg. Even in the distant photo, the unique shape of this elegant raptor can be clearly seen.
