The bird of the day, I must say! My prime target. Spotted by Caleb Strand in the area where he discovered the bird last Thursday. The bird was along the north side of the Lyke's Lookout trail many times during my observations with the bird over the course of 1.5 hours. It also was seen near the junction of the Lyke's Lookout Trail and the River Ramble Trail. Striking adult male with bright orange throat, breast, and lower belly, orange supercillum, bold black breast band, boldly patterned wings of contrasting orange and black-ish, and white undertail coverts. Distinctive in all plumages. Photographed.
