Observation details

**Very unusual. First seen in the middle of the orchard perched on the fence post. Observed hunting behavior. Very distinctive forked long tail. The bird had a white head and black wings, and its flank was pinkish-orange, which was often revealed when it was flying. Occasionally, loud "pip" calls were heard from the flycatcher. Last observed near the blueberry patch.
