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.

Yes, I heard the Alder Flycatcher sing, that is how I know it is an Alder Flycatcher. It was very agitated when we played its song on the i-phone. Only did it once.
Thanks Bob, I got lucky with that shot.

Nice Cyndie, that's how I got a Willow Flycatcher a week or so ago.

The Tricolored was a lifer for me. I've been looking for those for 30+ years! Although this one wasn't as purty as some pics I've seen.

I went out on dawn (birding) patrol today looking for Olive-sided Flycatcher and Least Bittern, no luck on those.

Great shot Dee ee, wonderful stuff.

Finally got a Blue-gray Gnatcatcher (thanks to Dave/Brass Nuts) for the location. Fuk..they are hard to shoot.

Dee, was the least at Malibu?

I did some rattler wranglin' today. They're related to boids, right?
He was a cute little feller, right? (shot from 8")
