On this day (May 15th)................


May 15th 2013.

A male Blue and White Flycatcher in one of the local parks 5 years ago today. There was an astonishing fall of common migrants that lasted several days that week: low pressure, cool temperatures and very low cloud caused it I think.................in the subsequent years the same park has been very quiet since.
