Birders are flocking to a Fort Lauderdale cemetery to see a South American bird that is rarely seen in the United States.
The variegated flycatcher has been hanging out at Evergreen Cemetery. Since Saturday, hundreds of people have stopped by to take a look and snap pictures.
The Sun Sentinel (http://bit.ly/1Whmj3Q ) reports online message boards have been lighting up with comments since the bird was spotted. Lucie Bruce and Nick Cooney told the newspaper they flew in from Texas after reading about the bird. Bruce says the flycatcher is number 824 on her list.
The bird has a brown back with streaks in front on its pale-yellow belly and has tail-feathers with reddish-brown edges. It looks as if it’s wearing a mask. The birds rarely leave South America.
