      While it certainly is uncommon for a Pacific-slope Flycatcher to be
      found nesting over a light bulb in a barn, it is not uncommon for one to
      nest at the elevation of Tree of Life Nursery. According to the ATLAS
      OF BREEDING BIRDS, Orange County, CA, this species has nested in such
      places as Upper Trabuco Canyon, Holy Jim Canyon, Starr Ranch Audubon
      Sanctuary, and even Santiago Oaks Regional Park. They usually prefer a
      habitat of "extensive continuous stands of large trees" but this pair
      may have found the food supply to be better by the light bulb!
