Northern Flicker/ Willet - Mystery solved!
Northern Flicker (Pierre-Andre Crochet)
Well that solves that one- it was a male Northern Flicker and only four people out of 21 of us have seen it, despite intensive searching. The bird is very mobile and was flushed twice 2km apart. This is the bird that was presumably heard three days ago and yesterday. The bird was also heard calling this afternoon from thick cover in Fogo.
Also today, sightings include Grey-cheeked Thrush, Yellow-billed Cuckoo, Indigo Bunting, 2 Red-eyed Vireo and American Golden Plover.
