Acadian Flycatcher (2nd of the Season)

We banded 24 new bird and had 5 recaptures of 8 different species this morning.  The highlight of the day was our 2nd Acadian Flycatcher of the season.  This bird stood out right away when I was removing it from the net as being much more greenish overall.  The presence of grayish legs and a large bill measurement clinched the identification.  Unfortunately, I forgot to charge my camera's battery last night so I have no photo to show today.
