Say's Phoebe (Sayornis saya) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1407)
Canada (Ontario) Amherst Island (Kingston area) - This bird just showed up yesterday and I was determined to try for it having missed others in Ontario over the years. A Western species, one shows up every few years somewhere but it was always too far. This one was within reach. Morning light was against me today so it was over an hour before I managed to get anything worthwhile and this, part of a sequence three hours later, was when I said goodbye. By the way, identified as male because it sang.

Glad you had success! I wonder if this species gets turned around more than others. Or perhaps some of the recent storms brought him in.

My guess is weather related not a miscue on the internal migration map but we'll never know for sure. It is more common for us to get them in fall than spring but they are never 'common', but rather a provincial rarity.
