I took this photo on the eastern shore of Maryland the other day: http://www.flickr.co...N05/7642911270/
I think it's a female Acadian Flycatcher, but I'm not completely certain.
Thanks for your help!

It has the two curved stripes of white on its wing, has the whitish belly, black eye with whitish eye ring, and the beak that is dark on top and a bit orange on the bottom.
I am not sure whether it is male or female, though.
EDIT: I would wait for someone else to also confirm it though, since I am a beginner at identifying birds still.

I don't think there's any way to sex these in the field, except possibly by a few of the call notes.

I haven't heard of sorting out male vs. female, getting the correct species is hard enough.
