Target Birds – Acadian Flycatcher and Yellow-throated Vireo… Bonus Scarlet Tanager close up

Went by Stony Creek Metropark today… I still need Acadian Flycatcher and Yellow-throated Vireo for my yearly list… I found both rather easily… The Habitat trail is good for both species behind the nature center… I found two pairs of Yellow-throated Vireo near the high point on the trail and the Acadian was on the trail right past the powerlines… It has nested there for a few years… very easy to find since its calling all the time… The bonus was finding a pair of Scarlet Tanagers about 10 feet off the ground and only a few feet from me… I interrupted there copulating session and he sat there and glared at me for a few minutes before I left… I guess I can’t blame him….
