Picnicking with an Ash-throated Flycatcher

Several weeks ago Bosque Bill and I went birding at Bandelier National Monument in the Jemez Mountains to explore the ruins and look for birds. As we were eating a lovely picnic lunch by a stream, we noticed that we were not the only ones enjoying lunch.

Ash-throated Flycatcher spies something tasty

A successful catch!


Another tasty morsel!

A fine picnic indeed!

Bandelier National Monument is a fascinating place. The ruins are amazing, the hiking is lovely and the wildlife is abundant. It is one of my favorite day trips.
