You haven’t forgotten the Fork-Tailed Flycatcher, have you? He’s the rare bird who seems to be staying an unusually long time at the sod fields at the end of the Lake Apopka Wildlife Drive. On our last visit to the drive, Forky put on quite a show for my dad and me. Want to see some action shots? ;-)
It’s not often that you get to spend quality time with a rare bird. Forky was definitely showing off all his best fly-catching moves! It was such a pleasure to watch him. Then he gave us one final treat…and came in closer!!
