Ash-throated Flycatcher at Wind Point in Racine Wisconsin on April 27, 2022

There was a report of a Ash-throated Flycatcher at Wind Point in Racine and I needed this species for my Wisconsin life list. When I arrived at the lighthouse I found other birders and they said I just missed it! They then said it just flew down the hedge along the lake. After some looking I did find it, it was easy to spot as it was bigger than the swallows and warblers in the area. It liked hanging out inside the trees but there was a time when it made a brief appearance higher up in the open and I took a couple of photos. A Wisconsin life bird #365. It was a mostly cloudy day with a breeze and temps around 40 degrees. Images were taken on April 27, 2022.
