This email was forwarded to me round-about...
I'm an out of state birder from Ohio visiting family for the holiday.
Yesterday afternoon, I was birding at the Euche Creek trail park which is
located east of Grovetown in Columbia County (I believe) off of Wrightsboro
Road. I'll have to double check the county and road again but I'm pretty
sure this is correct. I encountered what I initially thought was a
GREAT-CRESTED FLYCATCHER at the end of the paved trail in this park. I did
manage to get some brief (and shaky) video footage of the bird before it was
scared off by some children. I wasn't able to study the bird in detail
because encountering a this late in November piqued my curiosity
so I focused on getting some video documentation. It did call several times
and gave a relatively soft "pip" call which is similar to what is described
in field guides for ASH-THROATED FLYCATCHER. Again, this bird was located
at the end of the PAVED trail that continues after the boardwalk. This
section of trail is easily
identifiable as it ends in a little loop culdisac.
I don't have access to the GA list serve but maybe you could post this
message for me as other birders should probably try to get out there and get
a better handle on this bird. I will try again tomorrow but will be heading
out of town shortly thereafter.
I appreciate your time. Please feel free to contact me for additional info.
