While I was snapping the barn quilt's portrait, I kept hearing Morse Code... dot dot dot dashdashdash dot dot.... I looked to see what it was and, lo and behold, it was a flycatcher enjoying a little nosh courtesy of the Maple. He didn't budge, even when I walked out into the yard to take his portrait. Perhaps he was a tad jealous of the barn quilt and wanted his picture taken, too!
The flycatcher was completely unexpected! We have lots of downy and pileated woodpeckers, but we have never seen one of these guys before. I am so excited. Guess there will be some special little treat out for him tomorrow!
What unexpected gift did you get today??
