Rare red-flanked bluetail has bird-lovers flocking to L.A. for a glimpse

Flocks of hard-core bird watchers are converging on a downtown Los Angeles library to catch a glimpse of an extremely rare red-flanked bluetail. The Old World avian species has only been spotted in North America twice before, and has made a temporary home outside W.A. Clark Memorial Library.
