Two Rivers Park 8/23/2009

I made two excursions yesterday, one to Bald Knob NWR and another to Sheppard Island Park in Pine Bluff chasing the Swallow-tailed Kites so I decided to stay close to home today and just bird Two Rivers Park.  It was a good choice because I got a life bird (Alder Flycatcher) and would have had another if I hadn’t seen the Swallow-tailed Kite the day before.  I did get a much better view of the kite today so no complaints there.  I saw the STKI soaring with a juvenile Red-shouldered Hawk and a juvenile Mississippi Kite.
