Rare Bird Spotted In Queen Anne’s

Dan Small and Maren Gimpel, a married couple of field ecologists at Foreman’s Branch Bird Observatory, banded two ash-throated flycatchers. These birds are commonly found west of the Rockies, and this species has been documented less than 20 times in Maryland. These are the first to be banded in Maryland, the third and fourth ever banded in the whole Atlantic Flyway.
