Ash-throated Flycatcher & Short-eared Owls

It was a very nice Sunday spent on Maryland's Eastern shore. The weather was mild, the sun was shining and the birds were cooperative!My son Declan and I enjoyed the ASH-THROATED FLYCATCHER on Assateague as it fed around the Bayside Campground area.Later in the evening, and about an hour West of that wonderful flycatcher, we finished the day watching two SHORT-EARED OWLS flying around the marshes of Elliott Island Road. What a fantastic way to finish the Thanksgiving weekend. A life bird, great weather and some cherished father/son birding... I mean BONDING.The sun was vanishing below the horizon, so we were mighty lucky to have one of the owls glide by us... before all the lights went out!Happy Holidays,
Dan
