Sure looks like the Great Crested Flycatcher to me - we have lots of them nesting here, but have not yet gotten such a good shot of one. Interesting fact about these birds, they nest in old woodpecker holes, and almost always put a snakeskin in their nest - perhaps to ward off egg predators??

Thanks for the interesting info, Mole.
Its the first one I've seen here and haven't seen or heard it since.
Hopefully it will come back and set up housekeeping.
