Eastern Kingbird - now an annual vagrant!

Last year's bird of a lifetime is back. Another Eastern Kingbird has turned up today in Co. Galway. This time on Inishboffin island (last year was Inishmore). Found by the one and only Anthony McGeehan......well done indeed mate! Amongst many other things, Anthony has also also found a White's Thrush on Inishboffin in 2008 and a Mourning Dove there in 2007.
More details here;


Oddly enough, its Hugh Delaney's birthday today..........Hugh found last years Eastern Kingbird on Inishmore, which was the first WP record of the species.
Hopefully this one will hang on for all the visiting birders!

Footnote: Anthony also found the 2009 Cedar Waxwing on Inishbofin......quite an impressive track record!
