Common Baskettail

I photographed these Common Baskettails last summer in the University of Minnesota Landscape Arboretum.  The species occurs across the eastern United States into southeastern Canada. They are often hard to photograph, because they fly this way and that over ponds and waterways. While in flight, they often catch and eat small, flying insects (Paulson 2012).
