Great Crested Flycatcher

I found a new bird (new to me at least)!  This is a Great Crested Flycatcher:

I knew two things right away:  it was a flycatcher, and it was quite a bit larger than any flycatcher I had seen before.  The bird was flying way up in the treetops.  He was very colorful, with a yellow belly and rufous wings and tail.  He also has those broad white tertial edges seen in the photo, which helped me identify him.

I didn’t get a great picture because he was so far away.  But I’m going back to look for this bird today.  Love this guy!
