I have seen this species many times, but this is the only photo I ever got of one. Very poor image but all I have. We had flushed this bird a few times.

Description

I have no idea when, or if, I will ever be fortunate enough to get a picture of this elusive bird, so I thought I'd enter it here, despite wanting this location to only have bird sightings for which I have photographs. There are at least two birds here, who call constantly during the late spring/early summer. We heard them as clear as rocks!
