Jim...about time you posted to a good thread. Couldn't get you out mountain biking, maybe birding sometime. :-)

Been out with Bragg (climbing) a few times, we should get out on your next trip to Boulder.

Hope all is well?

Bob D'A and Little Z: you both are correct. Caught them on river trip in Costa Rica and later identified them in bird book as I am not a birder, well, wasn't before Costa Rica!

Cyndie, did you hear that Alder Flycatcher sing?

dee ee,

it's a flycatcher perched in an alder, therefore an Alder Flycatcher.

'nuff said

EDIT: of course this is meant as a joke, refering to what you obviously know - almost impossible to tell Alder and Willow (and most other Empids for that matter) apart except by their songs or calls, so if you only have a photo to work with you might as well just guess. Although knowledge of range can help, as in Cyndie's case - Willow Flycatcher would not be expected in her part of Alaska.

I've been out after the Olive-sided FC without luck. That's one with a distinctive look and song.
