Paul McKenzie and I were able to see the very-busy-foraging Fork-tailed Flycatcher at the map site from 6:30-7:00 pm and again just before dark at 7:56-7:59 pm.  It was sitting on the fence about 15 feet out our  window as we weaved our way through a couple of vehicles that were still watching it.  We surmise it is foraging a lot to build up fat reserves that it will need to head on out at some point in the near future.  When that departure time is is a guess, but any time during daylight it seems to be active according to all the emails.  Good luck. Don’t forget to document this bird each visit and photo. There
