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.

Thanks! I couldn't id the tree!


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")

Close you say? The lens was 8" from him and he never buzzed so I figgered
I was gud. That's perfect logic, right? To be honest the lens and camera
were about 10" so my hands never got closer than 18" which was almost his
length (20") so I knew I was gud. ;-)
