Variegated Flycatcher is a South American species whose southern race migrates north to northern parts of the continent during the austral winter and then fly south for the austral spring. This bird being present during our North American fall, as have four of the previous six records, represents a reverse migrant, i.e. one that has migrated at a path 180 degrees from its proper route to its breeding grounds. It is hypothesized that the many records of Fork-tailed Flycatcher during fall in the USA are also reverse migrants. Here's some more shots.
An overdue addition to the state list. Who knows what will show up next on the amazing South Padre Island?
