Great Crested Flycatcher Call - Up Close!


I am totally infatuated with a pair of Great Crested Flycatchers building a nest in the owl box in the Backyard. This is going to be fun, they are such outgoing, loud, showy and emotional birds! The
Male Great Crested Flycatcher giving the classic "weeep" call, which in this case is a locator call to keep in contact with the female. They are building a nest in the Screech Owl box and while the female is doing most of the work the male is on guard and fighting mostly his reflection in the sun room windows. He is extremely attentive - accompanying her on ever trip - occasionally bringing a few pieces of material into the nest, but I think he is mostly in the way in there. She seems to have a concept she is working on!
