Kingbird found

Our good friend Paul Bacich was among those who saw the Loggerhead Kingbird this week in Key West, Florida. As reported last week, this is the first solid record of this Caribbean bird in North America. Paul, it should be said, is not a man who easily comes by new life birds in the American Birding Association region. He's got a lot.

Here's an article from The Miami Herald about the find. (It shows a photo of the birders, not the bird. If you want to see a photo of the bird, taken by Carl Goodrich, one of two men who first found the Kingbird, page down a bit).

* Full disclosure: Warren works for McClatchy Newspapers, which owns the Herald!

Congrats, Paul. BirdCouple sez: Any day you see a new bird is a good day.
