Posted By: Harish Hegde, 12-29-2011, 09:13 PM

There I was, close to sunset wishing a Fly catcher will show as I know during winter they fly in to SoCal for a few weeks or as long as they lasted from the Predators that abound here..

Did I get lucky..
Here you go ladies and gents.. as rare a sight for a christmas day wish..a male at sunset..

He spotted me right away and I thought In would not see him again as he flew off. Much to my surprise he came back to the same tree to watch the sunset.

The setting sun rays shone right off his feathers.
