Subj: St Augustine Flycatcher  ID notes




This bird was seen from around 2pm today and was still there at  8pm. 
Please GOOGLE GTMNERR.org for directions.  When you get to the  entrance, go 
through the pay station and check all of the power lines  before reaching the 
restrooms.  The bird was hanging out just  above a gray fence with a trash 
dumpster behind it on the right on the power  lines.


We will have someone checking at sunrise and update the  lists.
