Boat-billed Flycatcher (2013)

$500 USD
When I was a young child there were very few resources open to me to see images of, or learn about, bird species not native to North America. I recall opening a book at the library – I don`t recall the title – that had a pen-and-ink drawing of a bird called a Boat-billed Flycatcher. How exotic that seemed to me, a colourful bird, according to the accompanying text, with a very large beak. The Tyrant Flycatcher family includes over 400 species, many known only to a select group of ornithologists. They are part of the world's biodiversity that we are rapidly depleting, and we are unaware of most of the wonderful creatures forever lost. Happily this one is still widespread and relatively common, for now.
