Ash-throated Flycatcher at North Pond

Our buddy Mike Miller found an Ash-throated Flycatcher today at North Pond in Chicago's Lincoln Park area. Congrats to Mike for finding a bird that I still don't have on my Illinois list, but unfortunately the bird could not be re-located later in the day, so it may be a one-day wonder.

Ash-throated Flycatchers do show up on a regular basis (for a vagrant, at least) in the Chicago area, but I can't think of one that has been around in the last few years that was truly "chaseable," i.e. one that was in an accessible location and stuck around for a few days.
