Karl Overman: Birds and more


The bird from Oklahoma seemed strange to me for a bird I associate with steams in well wooded and often hilly areas of the southeastern U.S. Here it was singing along a trickle of a stream through red stained badlands that had a very western look to them.

This species likes to winter along mountain streams in Mexico and Central America though not exclusively.  It is a rare wintering bird in Florida and probably the best spot to see it in winter is where I photographed the Florida bird,the  Kirby Storter Roadside Park on 41 in the Big Cypress Swamp.
