Bird watchers head to Maine for rare sighting
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.
