Description

This is a pair of bluebirds nesting in a box in our yard AND an unidentified flying object that looks like a Western Kingbird. I am hoping someone on here will be able to tell me what the Unidentified Bird is. Thank You. Maureen

    This is a Great Crested Flycatcher… here’s a link: https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Great_Crested_Flycatcher

    I can’t determine the size, but could it be a great crested flycatcher?

    It is indeed a Great Crested Flycatcher. They, too, will use nest boxes; in fact we have a plan for a flycatcher nest box here: https://nestwatch.org/learn/all-about-birdhouses/birds/great-crested-flycatcher/
