#ABArare – Loggerhead Kingbird – Florida

Another day, another Caribbean flycatcher in south Florida. Yesterday, Larry Manfredi found and photographed an ABA Code 5 Loggerhead Kingbird in Miami-Dade, Florida.

The bird was discovered at an out of the way location west of Miami.  A locally rare Pine Siskin has been present there for a few days and attracting birders with an eye for other things. From I-75, exit at NW 138 Street (Exit 2). Drive west about 0.5 miles to NW 97 Avenue. Turn right to NW 170 st., turn left to NW 102 ave., it is not marked
but may be the first dirt road that goes south. Go south about half a mile to the water treatment plant which will be on your right. There is a fence around the plant and a driveway with a gate leading into the plant.

Loggerhead Kingbird is a common and frequently encountered tyrant flycatcher throughout the Caribbean, and hard to miss in both Cuba and the Bahamas. It has occurred a handful of times in south Florida, mostly in the western Keys and almost always in spring.
