Asian Brown Flycatcher in Gambell today!! Our leader, Aaron Lang, found this very rare Asian vagrant this afternoon in the near “bone yard.” An incredible bird that was seen by all and photographed by many of us. A lifer for every single person in our group of veteran birders!!
I believe that this is only the 4th North American record of this bird normally found in Siberia and Japan.
This is why we endure the harsh conditions and come all this way to the Bering Sea.
