Spotted Fly Catcher

Will's top nest this year is the Spotted Fly Catcher- It started off nesting in the wisteria off the patio- we really enjoyed watching it perching on the chairs and swing seat catching flies- the first nest was raided by a crows but the pair managed to rear a second brood just outside the back door in a pyracantha. What a fantastic achievement- these little birds are so elegant- swooping up suddenly to catch flies in the yard right outside the kitchen window. We hope they return next year.Spotted Fly Catcher june 2013 rbSpotted Fly Catcher Babies July 2013
