The Olive-sided Flycatcher was seen again this afternoon at the Blandy Experimental Farm in Clarke County, VA. The bird was seen at the top of one of the large weeping willows near the loop road at Lake Arnold. Pewees, Phoebes, a Great Crested Flycatcher, a Blue-gray Gnatcatcher, and a Black-throated Green Warbler were also in the willows. In this same vicinity a Merlin (perched in the bare branches of the large cottonwood on the edge of Lake Arnold), an Osprey, a Northern Harrier, and, near the overlook pavillion, a juvenile Yellow-billed Cuckoo (sporting an all dark bill, rufous primaries, and only about 2 inches of tail) were seen this afternoon. Another birder reported a possible Western Kingbird. He saw the bird along the fence line on the eastern border of the Arboretum, south of Lake Arnold. Dr. David E.
