Olive-sided Flycatcher FOY and the 2nd I've ever seen in the  Yale Forest 
area. Teed up in a spindly tree with almost no leaves in the middle  of an 
open area, from a recent logging cut. Went flycatching once, then sat for  a 
minute and let me get a few pictures. After he flew I heard his song several  
times from the wooded area near Bigelow Brook. "Quick, 3  beers".
