Today at the TCAAP WVA, I Saw a Couple Great Crested Flycatchers

I heard two or three of these great crested flycatchers around the TCAAP Wildlife Viewing Area this morning. It was mostly cloudy with a storm coming in but I went out anyway.

I knew I had to get close to these birds to fill the frame but they are very skittish. I ended up getting lucky that this one landed on the barbed wire very close to me. I only got about 10 clicks on it before it flew off. The gray haze you see at the bottom of the frame is the bridge in the foreground. This shot is not cropped in post.
