Charlie Muise and Joy Carter located a singing Willow Flycatcher this morning in Atlanta. They were generous enough to give me a call so I could go and see/hear it. It was a lifer for Molly, though I am not sure she fully appreciated it.
The bird is off of Custer Ave between Boulevard and Moreland. Custer goes under a big power-line corridor and under this (north of Custer) is a City of Atlanta Bleach plant. A paved road proceeds about 100 yards north from Custer. There is a mowed grassy area to the left of the plant that goes back to some big concrete spillways (as you can imagine... a very scenic spot). There is an askew sign for "spillway 2" and from here the bird could be heard across the spillway. By bushwacking through a little poison ivy we could see the bird again across the spillway on a narrow hedgerow below (it gets even better)... the landfill...
A visit here could easily be combined with a visit to the federal prison if you are so inclined, which is a mile or so south on Boulevard.
