ermilion Flycatcher at Dugway Proving Grounds

Dugway, Utah

(E-mails from Ryan O'Donnell, 10 Sep 2012)

This weekend I traveled to the Dugway area to help a friend with some mammal studies there. While in the town of Dugway, I found an adult male VERMILION FLYCATCHER near his house. According to eBird, this is the first county record for Tooele County, and the fourth record of this species in Utah outside of Washington County. Unfortunately, this bird is not chaseable for most people, as Dugway is a secured U.S. Army installation and is not open to the public. Here is a photo of the bird:
