Bird watch­ers head to Maine for rare sight­ing

Truro Daily News - - CLASSIFIED­S/WORLD -

FAL­MOUTH, Maine — Bird watch­ers are trav­el­ling to Maine to catch the rare sight of a South Amer­i­can fork-tailed fly­catcher. The Port­land Press Her­ald re­ports the bird known for its black-and­white plumage and long, forked tail came to the Gil­s­land Farm Audubon Cen­ter in Fal­mouth on Saturday.

Maine Audubon Nat­u­ral­ist Doug Hitch­cox says the bird was last seen in the state in June 2012. He says the bird would nor­mally be fly­ing south at this time in­stead of north to Maine.
